Hearing Better at Church Services
With the holidays arriving, people with hearing loss are asking about how to hear better at church. Large auditorium like rooms have poor acoustics, challenging those who use hearing aids. Planning ahead can help keep stress down and allow you to better enjoy the service.
Consider where you sit. Do you sit up front where you may benefit from seeing the minister’s face and do some lip reading? Where are the loud speakers? Do you hear better when you sit closer to the loud speakers? Do you work with your hearing aids and sit with your back to the noise? Experiment, sit in different places, see where you hear and see the best. Make that your regular seat. Life Sounds Great! Enjoy Every Moment!
