Happy Hearing during the festive season.
The festive season is often a great time to catch up with family and friends at home, restaurants, BBQ’s and parties. For many people with hearing loss these get-togethers can be challenging situations. Here are some tips for better hearing during the festive season.
• Position yourself in the quietest area in the room, away from kitchen, loud speakers etc
• If the music is too loud, consider asking the host if it can be turned down a little
• Find a seat at the centre of a dinner table so that you are positioned to better hear everyone
• If you have hearing aids, wear them. You may think that with so much noise that hearing aids won’t work, but most of today’s hearing aids are advanced and can selectively enhance the speech and reduce the noise. This is not to say that the place will not be noisy, it just means you will experience a similar level of noise as everyone else.
