With one out of every five individuals in the US afflicted with some degree of hearing loss, there’s a high probability that you know at least one person who has some difficulty hearing.
And considering the potent connections among healthy hearing and physical, emotional, and social well-being, the holiday season is the perfect opportunity to provide an extremely meaningful gift.
If you do know somebody with hearing loss, here are a few fantastic gift ideas:
A Year’s Provision of Hearing Aid Batteries
Do you know anyone who genuinely enjoys shopping for batteries?
We don’t either.
Nevertheless, hearing aids will not accomplish much without the batteries, which makes them a necessity. By giving a year’s supply of hearing aid batteries, you can remove the responsibility and expense connected with the process of managing the supply.
Not certain which hearing aid batteries to order? Give us a call.
Customized Ear Protection
Are you buying for any musicians? Any hunters in the family?
The gift of custom made ear protection could reduce the risk of hearing damage and future hearing loss. And unlike the cheap foam earplugs available at the convenience store, custom earplugs are expressly constructed to reduce hazardous sounds while preserving the important sounds. This removes the “muffled” sound affiliated with foam earplugs.
Call us for more information about custom ear protection.
Hearing Aid Accessories
All hearing aids require periodic upkeep and cleaning to ensure sustained, optimum performance. And while this can’t be avoided, it can be made quite a bit easier.
Here are a couple of gift ideas to make hearing aid maintenance and cleaning easier:
- Hearing aid sanitizers apply ultraviolet light to safely and thoroughly 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 along with 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 certain which accessories you’ll need for a particular hearing aid? Contact us and we’ll help you find the most suitable products.
This is a popular gift idea, as these devices turn a pair of hearing aids into a set of premium headphones.
Streamers are devices that will detect an audio signal—from a TV, computer, 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 mobile electronic devices like cell phones and digital watches?
A smartphone or digital watch is a superb gift to begin with, but for those with hearing loss, it’s even better. Together with compatible hearing aids, you can discreetly adjust hearing aid volume and can change 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 let you know which hearing aids are compatible with which devices.
Last but not least, if you want to go all-out this year, how about giving the ultimate gift of hearing—a set of digital hearing aids.
Admittedly, you can’t just venture out and buy a pair of hearing aids. Each individual’s hearing loss is distinctive and requires a professional hearing test, not to mention that each individual will have specific preferences in terms of hearing aid style and functionality.
But presenting a gift card to cover the cost could prompt someone to at long last get the hearing aids they know will ultimately contribute to a greater all-around quality of life.
And just how many gifts can accomplish that?
