With one out of every five people in the US struggling with some degree of hearing loss, there’s a good chance you know at least one individual who has some difficulty hearing.
And considering the potent connections amongst healthy hearing and physical, emotional, and social health, the holiday season is the ideally suited opportunity to provide an extremely meaningful gift.
If you do know someone with hearing loss, here are several fantastic gift ideas:
A Year’s Supply of Hearing Aid Batteries
Do you know anyone who genuinely looks forward to shopping for batteries?
We don’t either.
Nevertheless, hearing aids won’t achieve much without the batteries, which makes them a must have. By giving a year’s supply of hearing aid batteries, you could remove the responsibility and cost connected with the task of managing the supply.
Not certain which hearing aid batteries to buy? Give us a call.
Custom-made Ear Protection
Are you shopping for any musicians? Any hunters in the family?
The gift of tailor made ear protection can prevent hearing injury and long-term hearing loss. And in contrast to the inexpensive foam earplugs available at the convenience store, custom earplugs are expressly engineered to suppress damaging sounds while conserving the essential sounds. This removes the “muffled” sound related to foam earplugs.
Call us for more information about custom ear protection.
Hearing Aid Accessories
All hearing aids mandate routine maintenance and cleaning to ensure lasting, maximum performance. And while this can’t be avoided, it can be made a whole lot easier.
Here are some gift ideas to make hearing aid maintenance and cleaning easier:
- Hearing aid sanitizers apply ultraviolet light to safely and thoroughly kill dangerous pathogens, such as harmful bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and molds.
- Hearing aid dehumidifiers eliminate excess moisture and increase the life of the components of the hearing aids.
- Hearing aid multi-tools feature 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.
Not certain which accessories you’ll require for a particular hearing aid? Contact us and we’ll help you find the right products.
Here’s a favorite gift idea, as these gadgets convert a pair of hearing aids into a set of top-quality headphones.
Streamers are devices that will pick up 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 numerous hearing aid models can be managed with portable electronic devices such as cell phones and digital watches?
A smartphone or digital watch is an outstanding gift to begin with, but for those with hearing loss, it’s better yet. With compatible hearing aids, you can subtly control hearing aid volume and can alter the settings right from the portable device.
This is one feature that, once you have it, you’ll never go without it again. Talk to us and we’ll inform you of which hearing aids are compatible with which devices.
And finally, if you feel like going all out this year, consider giving the ultimate gift of hearing—a pair 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 distinctive and requires a professional hearing test, not to mention that each individual will have distinct preferences with regard to hearing aid style and functionality.
But presenting a gift card to cover the cost could encourage someone to at long last get the hearing aids they know will ultimately lead to a better all-around quality of life.
And just how many gifts can accomplish that?
