Have you viewed the videos on YouTube? After being fitted with hearing aids, a 7-month-old baby hears his mother’s voice for the first time. You might find yourself crying tears of joy when you see the smile on his face.
You can find countless videos similar to this online. You feel like you’re part of that special 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. They fight when the doctor attempts to fit the device on their ear. Occasionally, before they smile with joy, they cry. A range of emotions overtakes them. They don’t know what to expect. But then, with renewed hearing, the world opens up for them.
This happiness that they’re experiencing can be a reality for anyone.
Does the idea of wearing hearing aids make you anxious? You’re not by yourself. You don’t need to be a child to be a little wary of this new experience.
People of any age can have the happiness and joy that hearing aids bring.
Music to Your Ears
You might not have even noticed. It was a very slow development. You stopped listening to music. It seems like it used to be so much more satisfying. In some cases, it was even grating. Turning the volume up made it even worse.
The volume you hear isn’t the only thing that is impacted by hearing loss. Some wavelengths of sound are lost while others are not impacted.
Every musician is aware that the notes blend together to make a unified sound that resonates as waves move into your ears. If you can’t hear the spectacular complexity of music, it just isn’t the same.
But put on your hearing aid. All of a sudden you can hear those tones again. The beauty of music is back in your life. It becomes a wonderful pleasure in your life that you’d lost.
The Laughter of a Child
Is the sound of a child’s laughter something you can recall? If you’ve been hesitant to use your hearing aid, you may have forgotten how beautiful this experience can be.
Restore your hearing with hearing aids and rediscover those wonderful moments with your grandchildren.
The Beautiful Sounds of Nature
Remember all those birds out in your yard? There are hundreds if you walk in the park. While some of their chirps are more pleasant than others, it’s something you might not appreciate until they’ve gone.
Except they haven’t gone. You just can’t hear these joyful melodies that so enhance your life.
But when you use your hearing aids those beautiful sounds of nature return to enhance your life once more.
Relationships can be significantly stressed by untreated hearing loss. It can cause a tremendous amount of frustration. There’s misunderstanding resulting in more arguments. It can even cause a person with hearing loss to isolate themselves, so they don’t feel like a burden.
They may steer clear of social clubs or dinner out because they feel alone and disconnected while others have a conversation.
Have you given up hobbies because they’re not as satisfying?
Your relationship with friends and family will be revitalized by the simple act of using hearing aids.
Get accustomed to speaking with each other again. Talk for hours. Get back to doing the things you enjoy and being with people you love.
It’s time to think about hearing aids especially if you miss these things.
Feeling Safer in Your Home
Does what you can’t hear make you feel anxious? If a loved one was injured and calling for help in a different, would you be able to hear them? Could you hear the doorbell, timer on the oven, or smoke detector? Maybe you would miss an important phone call because you didn’t hear it ring.
What about oncoming traffic when you walk through the neighborhood, or a bicycle bell, or a pedestrian signal? Are you certain that you can hear these important signals?
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 relaxed, and enjoy life to its fullest extent. You’ll experience peace of mind.
You May Not Realize What You’re Missing
Hearing loss advances gradually in most instances. You might have simply forgotten the joy of things you no longer hear.
You’ll be surprised when you suddenly hear them again. You’ll wish you addressed it sooner. If you don’t think your hearing loss is that bad, it’s time to get it looked at. Schedule a hearing assessment and discover what you’ve been missing.
