YouTube has some videos you really should check out. After getting fitted with hearing aids, a 7-month-old baby hears his mother’s voice for the first time. You might find yourself crying tears of joy when you see the smile on his face.
You can find numerous videos like this online. You can share that special moment with the child, the parents, and their doctors.
In some videos, the baby is hesitant at first. When the doctor attempts to fit the hearing aids in the baby’s ears, they initially resist. Occasionally, before they smile with joy, they cry. A range of emotions overtakes them. They’re not certain what’s happening. But in the end, with restored hearing, the world suddenly opens up for them.
This joy that they’re experiencing can be a reality for anyone.
Does the idea of wearing hearing aids make you apprehensive? You’re not by yourself. You don’t need to be a child to be a bit wary of this new experience.
People of any age can have the joy and happiness that hearing aids bring.
The Sound of Music
You might not have even noticed. It happened so slowly. You stopped listening to music. It seems like it used to be a lot more enjoyable. At times, it was even grating. It got even worse when you cranked up the volume.
The volume you hear is not the only thing that is effected by hearing loss. It effects how you hear different frequencies and tones.
Music is, as every musician recognizes, a beautiful blend of sound frequencies that meld together to produce the sound that we hear as…., well, music. If you can’t hear the magnificent complexity of music, it just isn’t the same.
But put your hearing aid on. Suddenly you can hear those once silent tones. Music once again comes alive. It becomes a great pleasure in your life that you’d lost.
A Child’s Laughter
Is the sound of a child’s laughter something you can recall? If you’ve been hesitant to use your hearing aid, you might have forgotten how amazing this experience can be.
Rediscover these magical moments with your grandchildren by restoring your hearing.
The Beautiful Sounds of Nature
Remember all those birds in your yard? There are hundreds if you walk in the park. While some of their chirps are more pleasant than others, it’s something you may not appreciate until they’ve gone.
Except there not gone. These beautiful sounds of nature once tremendously enhanced your life, but now you can’t hear them because of your hearing loss.
But when you put in your hearing aids those delightful sounds of nature come back to enhance your life once more.
Untreated hearing impairment can put significant stress on relationships. It can cause a great deal of frustration. They misunderstand. They tend to argue more. Sometimes, so they don’t feel like a burden, people with hearing loss will go into seclusion.
They may avoid social clubs or going out to dinner because they feel alone and disconnected while others have a conversation.
Are hobbies you once loved less enjoyable now so you’ve given them up?
The simple act of getting your hearing back will breathe new life into your relationships with people you love, siblings, children, and friends.
Learn to speak with each other again. Talk for hours. Go back to spending time with the ones you love and taking part in activities you enjoy.
It’s time to think about hearing aids particularly if you miss these things.
Assurance That You’re Safe in Your Home
Does what you can’t hear make you feel anxious? Would you hear the voice of an injured family member calling you from another room? Would you hear the doorbell, timer on the oven, or smoke alarm? Perhaps you would miss a crucial phone call because you couldn’t hear it ring.
When you stroll around the neighborhood, are you confident that you will hear oncoming traffic, pedestrian signals, or a bicycle bell?
There are places where we should feel perfectly safe but because of these “what ifs” we don’t.
But when you use your hearing aid, you can be more relaxed, and enjoy life to its fullest. You’ll experience peace of mind.
