Family Friends Holiday MealThe Holiday season is a time to get together with family and friends, share stories and enjoy a good meal.  For those experiencing hearing loss, however, those large gatherings are often seen as more stressful than joyful. 

Is There A Hearing Issue?

The holidays are a time of great food and great conversations.  If you have noticed that there is a friend or family member struggling with conversation, asking for words to be repeated, or not participating, they may be experiencing hearing loss.  

If presented in as a caring manner, and promoting their well-being, your family member may be more receptive to hearing issues being addressed.  Use real-life examples and possibilities – phone calls, restaurant interactions, how loud they keep their TV or radio.  Explain that it’s an issue that can grow into a problem, but can be easily managed and improved.

Harbor Audiology and Hearing Services will be participating in the Mid-County Community Center’s 4th Annual Senior Wellness Fair.  The event will take place on October 27th, 10am until 1pm. 

Throughout the event, various businesses and organizations will be there with information for seniors and their families to live a healthy lifestyle.  In addition to the great information, there will be giveaways, raffles and a free lunch from 11-12:30.  Stop by our table and say hi to the friendly staff of Harbor Audiology and Hearing Services.

Technology changes each and every day, and hearing aids are no exception. It can be baffling to think someone would sacrifice having better relationships, better communication, better experiences out in the world and an overall better quality of life by keeping outdated devices.

Manufacturers are continuously finding ways to improve hearing aids and adding incredible new features so it’s important for you to know if you have the right hearing aids to suit your lifestyle.

If you're thinking about skipping out on updating your hearing aids here are a few reasons you may want to reconsider delaying an upgrade.
