With one out of every five individuals in the US battling with some degree of hearing loss, there’s a high probability that you know at least one individual who has some difficulty hearing.
And considering the potent links among healthy hearing and physical, mental, and social health, the holiday season is the ideal chance to provide a highly meaningful gift.
If you do know somebody with hearing loss, here are a few fantastic gift ideas:
A Year’s Supply of Hearing Aid Batteries
Do you know anyone who actually enjoys shopping for batteries?
We don’t either.
Nonetheless, hearing aids will not achieve much without the batteries, which makes them a necessity. By giving a year’s supply of hearing aid batteries, you could remove the trouble and cost connected with the process of managing the supply.
Not certain which hearing aid batteries to purchase? Give us a call.
Custom Ear Protection
Are you shopping for any musicians? Any hunters in the household?
The gift of specialty ear protection can prevent hearing damage and long-term hearing loss. And in contrast to the cheaper foam earplugs sold at the convenience store, custom earplugs are specially designed to curb dangerous sounds while conserving the essential sounds. This helps prevent the “muffled” sound affiliated with foam earplugs.
Call us for more information about custom ear protection.
Hearing Aid Accessories
All hearing aids demand periodic upkeep and cleaning to assure ongoing, maximum performance. And although this can’t be averted, it can be made a great deal easier.
Here are a couple of gift ideas to make hearing aid maintenance and cleaning easier:
- Hearing aid sanitizers use ultraviolet light to safely and comprehensively kill dangerous pathogens, such as harmful bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and molds.
- Hearing aid dehumidifiers eliminate excessive moisture and increase the life of the parts of the hearing aids.
- Hearing aid multi-tools consist of a magnet for battery removal in addition to 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 require for a particular hearing aid? Talk to us and we’ll help you find the most suitable products.
Here’s a favorite gift idea, as these devices turn a pair of hearing aids into a set of top-quality headphones.
Streamers are devices that will acquire an audio signal—from a TV, computer, or other device—and will deliver the signal straight to the hearing aids for crystal clear sound.
Did you know that numerous hearing aid models can be operated with mobile electronic devices such as cell phones and digital watches?
A smartphone or digital watch is an outstanding gift in the first place, but for those with hearing loss, it’s better yet. With compatible hearing aids, you can discreetly control hearing aid volume and can adjust the settings straight from the portable device.
This is one function that, the moment 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.
And finally, if you want to go all out this year, consider giving the ultimate gift of hearing—a set of digital hearing aids.
Admittedly, you can’t just venture out and buy a pair of hearing aids. Each individual’s hearing loss is unique and will require a hearing examination, not to mention that each individual will have special preferences with regard to hearing aid style and functionality.
But presenting a gift card to cover the cost could encourage someone to at long last buy the hearing aids they know will ultimately contribute to a greater overall quality of life.
And just how many gifts can really accomplish that?
