With one out of every five individuals in the United States afflicted with some degree of hearing loss, there’s a good chance you know at least one individual who has some trouble hearing.
And considering the strong links between healthy hearing and physical, emotional, and social health, the holiday season is the optimal opportunity to provide a highly 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 honestly takes pleasure in shopping for batteries?
We don’t either.
Nonetheless, hearing aids will not achieve much without the batteries, which makes them a requirement. By providing a year’s supply of hearing aid batteries, you could eliminate the burden and cost connected with the work of managing the supply.
Not certain which hearing aid batteries to purchase? Give us a call.
Customized Ear Protection
Are you buying for any musicians? Any hunters in the household?
The gift of custom made ear protection can protect against hearing damage and long-term hearing loss. And contrary to the low cost foam earplugs available at the convenience store, custom earplugs are specially manufactured to suppress detrimental sounds while conserving the important sounds. This helps prevent the “muffled” sound caused by foam earplugs.
Talk to us for more information about custom ear protection.
Hearing Aid Accessories
All hearing aids necessitate routine maintenance and cleaning to ensure lasting, optimal performance. And while this can’t be averted, it can be made a great deal easier.
Here are a few gift ideas to make hearing aid maintenance and cleaning easier:
- Hearing aid sanitizers make use of ultraviolet light to safely and thoroughly kill dangerous pathogens, including harmful bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and molds.
- Hearing aid dehumidifiers clear away excess moisture and prolong the life of the parts of the hearing aids.
- Hearing aid multi-tools include a magnet for battery removal along with 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 being used and can make transport more convenient.
Uncertain of which accessories you’ll require for a specific hearing aid? Contact us and we’ll help you find the right products.
Here’s a favorite gift idea, as these devices turn a pair of hearing aids into a pair of top-quality earphones.
Streamers are gadgets 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.
Did you know that numerous hearing aid models can be operated with portable electronic devices such as cell phones and digital watches?
A smartphone or digital watch is a great gift to begin with, but for those with hearing loss, it’s even better. Along with compatible hearing aids, you can subtly adjust hearing aid volume and can adjust the settings right from the portable device.
This is one function that, the moment you have it, you’ll never go without it again. Give us a call and we’ll let you know which hearing aids are compatible with which devices.
Last but not least, if you want to go all-out this year, consider giving the ultimate gift of hearing—a set of digital hearing aids.
Keep in mind, you can’t just venture out and purchase a pair of hearing aids. Each individual’s hearing loss is distinctive and requires a professional hearing examination, not to mention that each individual will have specific preferences with regard to hearing aid style and functionality.
But presenting a gift card to cover the expense could prompt someone to finally get the hearing aids they know will ultimately lead to a better overall quality of life.
And how many gifts can accomplish that?
