McDonald Hearing Services - Grand Rapids, MI

Woman packing a holiday gift into a box now that she has hearing aids.

The air filled with the sweet smells of cinnamon and nutmeg. A festive spirit and red, green, and blue lights fill your home. Grandchildren dancing, singing, and playing as you catch up with your sister, brother, cousins, and children.

The holidays are exciting, and you don’t want to miss a beat.

You’re so thrilled, you can’t wait.

Is There Anything You May be Missing?

Throughout the year, you spend as much time with friends and family as you can but it’s special when the holidays come. Every moment is precious.

Yet the drone of background noise sometimes overwhelms the voices of people speaking to you. You frequently need to have them repeat what they said.

As the conversation goes on, your youngest niece and her husband make a major announcement. Everyone at the table smiles widely and congratulates them. As the family celebrates, the volume in the room increases.

Your skin gets warm as a confused look spreads across your face. You didn’t catch what your niece said. What just happened?

You want to ask somebody. It seems as if it was a significant announcement. But you feel embarrassed that you didn’t catch it the first time.

It’s just not the same when someone has to repeat it. Everybody’s cheering and you don’t want to interrupt.

You later find out that your niece announced she is pregnant.

You never know what you’re going to miss this holiday season if you have hearing impairment.

How to Get Ready For The Holidays

In anticipation, you’ve already bought presents and planned that big meal. You typically get your shopping done well ahead of the holiday.

You’re decorating your house and planning out zoom calls. All of this is important.

But what’s most important is being able to have meaningful conversation with friends and relatives.

You should have your hearing tested sooner than later.

Why You Shouldn’t Procrastinate

Even if you have mild hearing loss, we can offer you appropriate solutions now.

These treatments can help you hear more clearly during the holidays, on calls, or at the grocery store. When there’s lots of background noise, having hearing devices makes it easier to understand what people are saying.

You will be able to hear what people are saying on the phone as well.

Starting early is always the best choice. It takes a bit of time to become comfortable with some of these solutions. Getting treated now means you’re ready when the family begins gathering – either online or at your door. Ensure that you don’t lose out on the joy of your grandchildren’s laughter. Don’t miss that big announcement.

Don’t get shut out this holiday. Contact us for a hearing exam.
