With one out of every five individuals in the US suffering with some form of hearing loss, there’s a high probability that you know at least one person who has some trouble hearing.
And bearing in mind the potent connections amongst healthy hearing and physical, psychological, and social well-being, the holiday season is the perfect opportunity to give a highly meaningful gift.
If you do know someone with hearing loss, here are a couple of excellent gift ideas:
A Year’s Supply of Hearing Aid Batteries
Do you know anyone who genuinely likes shopping for batteries?
We don’t either.
Still, hearing aids won’t achieve much without the batteries, which makes them a necessity. By furnishing a year’s supply of hearing aid batteries, you could get rid of the responsibility and expense connected with the challenge of managing the supply.
Not certain which hearing aid batteries to purchase? Give us a call.
Personalized Ear Protection
Are you shopping for any musicians? Any hunters in the family?
The gift of specialty ear protection could protect against hearing injury and future hearing loss. And contrary to the low cost foam earplugs sold at the convenience store, custom earplugs are expressly manufactured to control destructive sounds while preserving the important sounds. This minimizes the “muffled” sound connected to foam earplugs.
Call us for more information about custom ear protection.
Hearing Aid Accessories
All hearing aids mandate periodic maintenance and cleaning to ensure ongoing, optimal performance. And although this can’t be avoided, 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 utilize ultraviolet light to safely and comprehensively kill hazardous pathogens, such as harmful bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and molds.
- Hearing aid dehumidifiers eliminate excessive moisture and extend 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 more convenient.
Not sure which accessories you’ll require for a specific hearing aid? Contact us and we’ll help you find the right products.
This is a favorite gift idea, as these products turn a pair of hearing aids into a set of high-quality earphones.
Streamers are devices that will acquire an audio signal—from a computer, TV, or other device—and will deliver the signal directly to the hearing aids for crystal-clear sound.
Are you aware that several hearing aid models can be managed with mobile electronic devices like 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. Together with compatible hearing aids, you can inconspicuously control hearing aid volume and can adjust the settings right from the portable device.
This is one feature that, the moment you have it, you’ll never go without it again. Give us a call and we’ll inform you of 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.
Of course, you can’t just go out and purchase a pair of hearing aids. Each person’s hearing loss is unique and will require a hearing examination, not to mention that each individual will have special preferences in terms of hearing aid style and functionality.
But providing a gift card to cover the cost could prompt someone to at long last buy the hearing aids they know will ultimately contribute to a better all-around quality of life.
And how many gifts can really accomplish that?
