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 tears to your eyes.
You can find countless videos like this online. You feel like you’re part of that wonderful moment that the child is sharing with their parents and doctors.
The baby doesn’t always take to the idea of having hearing aids put in initially. When the doctor attempts to fit the hearing aids in the baby’s ears, they resist and fight. They might cry before they smile with delight. They are overtaken by a wide range of emotions. They’re not sure what’s happening. But then, with renewed hearing, the world opens up for them.
They glow with joy, but that life-changing moment can happen to anybody.
Are you feeling apprehensive about using a hearing aid? Many people feel this way too. People of all ages can be a bit anxious about this.
People of any age can have the joy and happiness that hearing aids bring.
Music to Your Ears
You may not have even noticed. It happened so slowly. You don’t listen to music nowadays. It seems like it used to be so much more satisfying. It was even grating at times. It got even worse when you turned up the volume.
The volume you hear is not the only thing that is effected by hearing loss. Some frequencies of sound are lost while others are not impacted.
Music is, as every musician recognizes, a beautiful blend of sound frequencies that meld together to produce the sound that we hear as…., well, music. It’s just not the same if you can’t hear the subtle complexity of the music.
But put your hearing aid on. Now, those tones which were once muted can be vibrantly heard. The power of music is back in your life. You had lost that joy in your life, but now you have it back.
A Child’s Laughter
Is the sound of a child’s laughter something you can recall? If you’ve been hesitant to use your hearing aid, you might have forgotten how amazing this experience can be.
Restore your hearing with hearing aids and rediscover those wonderful moments with your grandchildren.
The Beautiful Sounds of Nature
Have you forgotten that lots of birds live in your yard? If you go for a walk in the park there will be hundreds. While some of their chirps are more pleasing than others, it’s something you might not appreciate until they’re gone.
Except there not gone. You just don’t hear these joyful melodies that so enhance your life.
But when you put in your hearing aids those delightful sounds of nature return to enhance your life once again.
Relationships can be substantially strained by neglected hearing loss. People get frustrated. They misunderstand. They often argue more. Sometimes, so they don’t feel like a burden, people with hearing loss will go into isolation.
They may steer clear of social clubs or going out to dinner because they feel all alone and disconnected while others have a conversation.
Are hobbies you once loved less fun now so you’ve given them up?
Your relationship with friends and family will be revitalized by the simple act of using hearing aids.
Learn to talk to each other again. Have long talks. Get back to doing the things you love and being with people you love.
It’s time to consider hearing aids particularly if you miss these things.
Confidence That You’re Safe in Your House
Does what you can’t hear make you feel stressed? If a loved one was injured and yelling for help in a different, would you be able to hear them? A doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm…could you hear them? Would you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even hear it ring?
When you walk around the neighborhood, are you sure that you’ll hear oncoming traffic, pedestrian signals, or a bicycle bell?
There are places where we should feel totally safe but because of these “what ifs” we don’t.
But when you use your hearing aid, you can be more at ease, and enjoy life to its fullest extent. You’ll be more at peace.
You Probably Don’t Even Know How Much You’re Missing
Hearing loss progresses gradually in most cases. You might have simply forgotten the pleasure of things you no longer hear.
When you suddenly hear them again, you’ll be amazed. You’ll regret neglecting it this long. Think your hearing loss isn’t that severe? Get it looked at. Schedule a hearing assessment and find out what you’ve been missing.
