With one out of every five individuals in the United States afflicted by some degree of hearing loss, there’s a high probability that you know at least one individual who has some difficulty hearing.
And bearing in mind the potent connections between healthy hearing and physical, psychological, and social well-being, the holiday season is the ideally suited opportunity to provide a highly meaningful gift.
If you do know somebody with hearing loss, here are a number of great gift ideas:
A Year’s Supply of Hearing Aid Batteries
Do you know anyone who honestly looks forward to shopping for batteries?
We don’t either.
Nevertheless, hearing aids won’t achieve much without the batteries, which makes them a requirement. By giving a year’s supply of hearing aid batteries, you can eliminate the responsibility and cost connected with the process of managing the supply.
Not certain which hearing aid batteries to order? Give us a call.
Custom-made Ear Protection
Are you buying for any musicians? Any hunters in the household?
The gift of customized ear protection could reduce the risk of hearing injury and future hearing loss. And in contrast to the cheaper foam earplugs sold at the convenience store, custom earplugs are expressly produced to inhibit destructive sounds while preserving the important sounds. This eliminates the “muffled” sound associated with foam earplugs.
Call us for more information about custom ear protection.
Hearing Aid Accessories
All hearing aids mandate routine maintenance and cleaning to ensure prolonged, optimal performance. And although this can’t be avoided, it can be made a great deal easier.
Here are a few gift ideas to make hearing aid maintenance and cleaning easier:
- Hearing aid sanitizers make use of ultraviolet light to safely and thoroughly kill dangerous pathogens, such as harmful bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and molds.
- Hearing aid dehumidifiers eliminate excessive moisture and extend the life of the components of the hearing aids.
- Hearing aid multi-tools include a magnet for battery removal along with other tools to clean the various parts of a hearing aid. This is the swiss army knife of hearing aid tools.
- Hearing aid storage cases can protect the hearing aids when not being used and can make transport easier.
Uncertain of which accessories you’ll need for a particular hearing aid? Contact us and we’ll help you find the most suitable products.
Here’s a favorite gift idea, as these products turn a pair of hearing aids into a pair of premium earphones.
Streamers are devices that will acquire an audio signal—from a TV, computer, or other device—and will deliver the signal directly to the hearing aids for crystal-clear sound.
Are you aware that several hearing aid models can be controlled with mobile electronic devices such as cell phones and digital watches?
A smartphone or digital watch is a great gift to begin with, but for those with hearing loss, it’s better yet. With compatible hearing aids, you can discreetly adjust hearing aid volume and can modify the settings right from the portable device.
This is one feature that, once you have it, you’ll never go without it again. Give us a call and we’ll let you know which hearing aids are compatible with which devices.
Last but not least, if you want to go all out this year, how about giving the ultimate gift of hearing—a set of digital hearing aids.
As you can imagine, you can’t just go out and purchase a pair of hearing aids. Each person’s hearing loss is unique and requires a professional hearing examination, not to mention that each individual will have distinct preferences with regard to hearing aid style and functionality.
But providing a gift card to cover the expense could encourage someone to at long last buy the hearing aids they know will ultimately lead to a better overall quality of life.
And just how many gifts can really accomplish that?
