Have you watched the videos on YouTube? After getting fitted with hearing aids, a 7-month-old baby hears his mother’s voice for the first time. His smile is enough to bring you tears of joy.
Videos like this one are numerous online. You feel like you’re part of that wonderful moment that the child is having with their parents and doctors.
The baby doesn’t always like the idea of getting hearing aids put in at first. When the doctor tries to put the hearing aids in the baby’s ears, they resist and fight. Occasionally, before they smile with joy, they cry. They are overwhelmed by a range of emotions. They don’t know what to expect. But then, with renewed hearing, the world opens up for them.
This joy that they’re feeling can be a reality for anyone.
Does the idea of using hearing aids make you anxious? You’re not by yourself. People of all ages can be a little anxious about this.
Individuals of all ages can have the happiness and joy that hearing aids bring.
Music to Your Ears
You might not have even noticed. It developed so gradually. You quit listening to music. It seems like it used to be so much more enjoyable. It was even grating at times. Turning the volume up made it even worse.
Hearing loss doesn’t just effect the volume you can hear. Some frequencies of sound are lost while others are not impacted.
Music is, as every musician knows, a beautiful blend of sound frequencies that blend together to produce the sound that we hear as…., well, music. If you can’t hear the magnificent complexity of music, it just isn’t the same.
But wait, now you put in your new hearing aids. Now, those notes which were once silent can be vibrantly heard. The power of music is back in your life. You had lost that pleasure in your life, but now you have it again.
A Child’s Laughter
Do you remember the sound of a child’s laughter? Perhaps your hearing loss has caused you to forget this amazing experience.
Rediscover these magical moments with your grandchildren by recovering your hearing.
Where Did All The Birds go?
Have you forgotten that lots of birds live in your backyard? If you go to the park there will be hundreds. You never knew how much you enjoyed their chirps until they were gone.
But the birds aren’t gone. You just don’t hear these joyful melodies that so enhance your life.
But when you wear your hearing aids those delightful sounds of nature come back to enhance your life once again.
Neglected hearing impairment can put significant stress on relationships. It can cause a great deal of frustration. There’s misunderstanding leading to more disagreements. Sometimes, in order to not feel like a burden, people with hearing loss will go into isolation.
They frequently feel alone and disconnected from other’s discussions causing them to refrain from going out to dinner or other social events.
Have you given up hobbies because they’re not as satisfying?
The simple act of having your hearing back will breathe new life into your relationships with people you love, siblings, children, and friends.
Learn to speak with each other again. Have long talks. Return to spending time with your loved ones and engaging in activities you love.
It’s time to think about hearing aids especially if you miss these things.
Assurance That You’re Safe in Your House
Does what you can’t hear make you feel anxious? Could you hear the voice of a hurt loved one calling you from another room? A doorbell, oven timer, or smoke detector…would you be able to hear them? Would you miss an important phone call because you didn’t hear it ring?
When you walk through the neighborhood, are you sure that you’ll hear oncoming traffic, pedestrian signals, or a bicycle bell?
These “what ifs” can make us feel vulnerable in places where we should be absolutely comfortable.
But when you use your hearing aid, you can be more at ease, and enjoy life to its utmost. You’ll have peace of mind.
You Probably Don’t Even Recognize How Much You’re Missing
Hearing loss advances gradually in most instances. It’s possible that you don’t even recall how much you took pleasure in things before your hearing began to decline.
When you suddenly hear them again, you’ll be shocked. You’ll wish you addressed it sooner. If you don’t believe your hearing loss is that severe, it’s time to get it looked at. Call us to schedule a hearing test.
