Hearing and Holiday Gatherings

The holidays can be a joyous time and often a loud hectic time of the year.  The first and best step to hearing well for the holidays starts with good audiologic care.  Have an audiologist check your hearing.  When recommended, wear hearing aids, they do a great job improving hearing and communication.   
Gatherings with family and friends, whether in a home or a restaurant can be loud, interfering with conversation.  When having difficulty hearing in a group conversation, try one- on-one conversations.  Make sure you are able to see speaker's face and pay attention to gestures.  Keep as much of the noise behind you as you can.  Be ready to ask people to speak slowly or to rephrase the information when needed.  Conversing loved ones is well worth the effort.  Go to to learn more about hearing aids.  Life Sounds Great!  Enjoy Every Moment!
