As the festive season approaches, our minds turn to spending time with family members, some of whom we see infrequently. We perhaps begin to think a little more about those people we don’t see much during the rest of the year. Sometimes it is with the challenge of finding a gift in mind and others simply the pleasure of the opportunity to see them once again. Whatever the reason, one thing for certain is the desire to communicate and catch up especially with those we see less frequently (albeit that there are some occasions when this may be less true; when the festive spirit can be tested!). Not being able to hear properly is a frustrating issue at any time or place but this can be especially true at Christmas. Gathered around the Christmas lunch table over Turkey and all the trimmings can often be a great time for conversation and catching up. In fact, it is often when many of us start up a conversation and can lead to many people talking at once – which is always the situation that those with hearing loss struggle in most. An occasional polite nod and a smile are used to cover for the fact that most is being missed; with some withdrawing from conversation completely. Not how one would imagine the time for catching up and enjoying one another’s company would be spent. There are many sources of help for this rather too common circumstance. At HearingDirect, we have a range of solutions designed to help hearing in a variety of ways and as a consequence to encourage everyone into the conversation. We have digital hearing aids at incredibly affordable prices, wireless TV listeners for personal volume settings, extra loud alarm clocks to make sure the big day is not missed and even amplified phones and mobiles if you can’t be with all the ones you love. We have hundreds of customers who describe that joyous feeling of becoming part of the conversation once again, with many stating how they wish they had done so sooner. Don’t let them miss another year; we can deliver orders placed before the 22nd December in time for Christmas so why not give the gift of hearing this Christmas and see for yourself what joy it can bring?
