With one out of every five individuals in the United States struggling with some form of hearing loss, there’s a high probability that you know at least one person who has some trouble hearing.
And considering the potent links among healthy hearing and physical, emotional, and social health, the holiday season is the ideal chance to provide a highly meaningful gift.
If you do know somebody with hearing loss, here are several fantastic gift ideas:
A Year’s Provision of Hearing Aid Batteries
Do you know anyone who really looks forward to shopping for batteries?
We don’t either.
Still, hearing aids won’t accomplish much without the batteries, which makes them a necessity. By providing a year’s supply of hearing aid batteries, you could remove the trouble and cost associated with the process of managing the supply.
Not certain which hearing aid batteries to buy? Give us a call.
Custom Ear Protection
Are you buying for any musicians? Any hunters in the family?
The gift of custom made ear protection can prevent hearing damage and long-term hearing loss. And contrary to the cheap foam earplugs available at the convenience store, custom earplugs are specially constructed to reduce destructive sounds while preserving the important sounds. This gets rid of the “muffled” sound connected to foam earplugs.
Call us for more information about custom ear protection.
Hearing Aid Accessories
All hearing aids demand periodic maintenance and cleaning to assure lasting, maximum performance. And although this can’t be averted, it can be made a whole lot easier.
Here are a couple of gift ideas to make hearing aid maintenance and cleaning easier:
- Hearing aid sanitizers use ultraviolet light to safely and thoroughly kill harmful pathogens, including harmful bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and molds.
- Hearing aid dehumidifiers eliminate excess moisture and lengthen 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 assorted 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 in use and can make transport easier.
Uncertain of which accessories you’ll need for a specific hearing aid? Contact us and we’ll help you find the most suitable products.
Here’s a favorite gift idea, as these gadgets convert a pair of hearing aids into a set of premium headsets.
Streamers are gadgets that will pick up an audio signal—from a computer, TV, or other device—and will send the signal directly to the hearing aids for crystal clear sound.
Are you aware that numerous hearing aid models can be controlled with mobile electronic devices like cell phones and digital watches?
A smartphone or digital watch is a fantastic gift in the first place, but for those with hearing loss, it’s even better. Along with compatible hearing aids, you can discreetly 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. Talk to us and we’ll let you know which hearing aids are compatible with which devices.
Last but not least, if you feel like going all out this year, how about giving the ultimate gift of hearing—a pair of digital hearing aids.
Admittedly, you can’t just go out and purchase a pair of hearing aids. Each person’s hearing loss is unique and will require a professional hearing examination, not to mention that each individual will have distinct preferences in terms of hearing aid style and functionality.
But presenting a gift card to cover the expense could encourage someone to at long last buy the hearing aids they know will ultimately lead to a better overall quality of life.
And just how many gifts can really accomplish that?
