According to the Center for Hearing and Communication, 15 million people in the US with hearing loss avoid seeking help.

They’ll usually wait an average of 7 years before getting help. That’s 7 years of missing out on birds chirping in the spring, ocean waves while on vacation, and conversations with loved ones. 

See why your hearing health is important around New Year’s Eve.

Avoid the Holiday Hearing Loss Blues

Can you hear your favorite Christmas song?

Do you need subtitles for your favorite Christmas movie?

It’s the most wonderful time of the year for most people, but for those with hearing loss, you might not think so. Conversations with family and friends, holiday music, movies, and gift giving all require the ability to hear. When your hearing is diminished, you may feel left out. Not to mention that when people get excited, they get louder, which can make things even worse for you. Feeling this way year after year can make the holidays feel more blue than white.

If you feel this way, you’re not alone. Hearing loss has been shown to negatively impact nearly every dimension of the human experience, according to the Hearing Loss Association of America. Hearing loss is very common in older adults too. Nearly half of people older than age 75 and approximately one third of those ages 64 to 75 have a hearing loss according to the Hearing Health Foundation

What can you do to feel less blue? Get an audiometry test! These tests can measure the range and sensitivity of your hearing to determine your degree of hearing loss and come up with solutions for you, such as hearing aids. The Hearing Health Foundation also says older adults who use hearing aids show reduced depression symptoms and improved quality of life.

Don’t Let Hearing Loss Ruin Thanksgiving

Did you used to love Thanksgiving?

But now dread it due to your hearing loss?

Thanksgiving is for spending time with family, but that can be hard when you can’t hear them. Here are steps you can take to improve your Thanksgiving experience:

  • Wear your hearing aids — If you wear hearing aids, make sure to wear them on Thanksgiving! According to the International Journal of Audiology, up to 25% of people who have hearing aids don’t wear them. Your hearing aids serve the important purpose of amplifying sounds, such as your family’s voices, making them easier to hear. You may sometimes get tired of the amplification, so you can turn them off and take a break if needed. Make sure to replace the hearing aid batteries on the day of, or bring some extras if traveling. 
  • Be honest — Don’t pretend that you can hear when you can’t. You aren’t being a burden by asking people to repeat themselves or asking your hearing helper questions. Your family loves you and wants you to be included. They can’t properly accommodate to your hearing ability if you aren’t being honest.

Perhaps the most important thing you can do prior to Thanksgiving is to get an audiology test. This test will gauge your hearing loss and what level of hearing ability you have left. From there, CMMC Hearing Care can determine the treatment option that’s right for you, whether it be hearing aids, hearing coaching, or a hearing aid adjustment.

How to Celebrate Thanksgiving with Hearing Loss

Are you excited to spend time with loved ones this Thanksgiving?

Want to create a plan for your hearing loss?

Thanksgiving is a time to connect with family, but you may find it hard to connect with loved ones when you can’t hear them. This makes conversation difficult and can leave you feeling left out. Here are some tips to help you enjoy Thanksgiving with hearing loss: 

  • Pick the right seat — When gathering around the table, choose a seat where you can see everyone’s faces. This can help you read lips and understand exactly who is talking. You can also sit beside the people you are going to talk to the most. 
  • Have a helper — Ask someone to be your hearing helper. Someone who can tell you if you’re being spoken to or fill you in on any information you may have missed.
  • Limit background noise — If you are hosting the event, make sure background sounds or music are kept low. They could drown out people’s voices if too loud. If you are a guest, ask the host beforehand to limit background noise.

Adjust Your Hearing Aids for Spooky Fun This Halloween!

Are you a horror movie fan?

Looking forward to Halloween movie marathons?

Horror movies can be filled with screams and other loud sounds, so you’ll want to make sure your hearing aids are adjusted to your volume limit. Hearing aids amplify noise, but not all sounds at the same level. You can decide at which volume your hearing aids will amplify the loudest sounds before they become painful. If you’re not sure of your limit or want to be safe, you can lower the overall hearing aid volume in anticipation of louder sounds.

Make sure you can still hear your doorbell for trick or treaters!
