You’ve watched the videos on TikTok. Babies, after they just get fitted for hearing aids, hearing the voice of their mother for the first time. Sometimes, initially, the baby is resistant. When the doctor tries to place the hearing aid in their ears, they fight against it. They might cry before they smile with delight. They’re overtaken with a range of emotions. They don’t know what to expect. But finally, their hearing is restored and the world abruptly opens up. These videos can even cause joyful tears for people watching them.
But anyone can have this life-altering moment.
You’re not alone if you’re feeling anxious about getting hearing aids. You don’t have to be a child to feel a bit careful about this new experience.
When people of any age experience hearing aids they may cry tears of joy, let’s discover why.
The sweet sound of music
Maybe you didn’t even realize. It progressed so slowly. You don’t appreciate music like you once did. It just doesn’t seem as satisfying anymore. It even aggravates you at times. Turning the volume up makes it even worse.
Hearing loss doesn’t only effect the volume you can hear. It impacts how you hear different pitches and notes.
Music is composed of notes of sound that mix and travel as waves that are then detected by your ears. Music is just not the same if you are unable to hear the wonderful complexity of the notes.
Those tones that were once missing in music will be enjoyed once again when you use hearing aids. Music once more comes alive! It becomes a great pleasure in your life that was lost.
The laughter of a child
Do you recall what a child’s laughing sounds like? You might have forgotten this wonderful sound experience if you’ve chosen not to wear your hearing aids. Restore your hearing and rediscover these enchanting moments with your grandkids.
Relationships can be significantly strained by untreated hearing loss. People get frustrated. They tend to argue more. And the person with hearing loss will frequently feel like a burden causing them to seclude themselves.
They may avoid social clubs or dinner out because they feel secluded and disconnected while others are chatting.
Have you given up hobbies because they’re not as fun?
The simple act of getting your hearing back will revive your relationships with a significant other, brothers and sisters, children, and friends.
Learn to speak with each other again. Talk long into the night. Do all of the things you love with the people you love.
It’s time to think about hearing aids if you’re missing these things in your life.
Feeling safer in your home
Are you stressed that you may be missing significant safety sounds? If a loved one was injured and calling out to you, would you be able to hear them? If the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm sounded, would you be able to hear them? Would you miss the ringing of the phone when an important call was coming in?
Do you stress that you won’t be able to hear oncoming traffic or pedestrian signals when out for a stroll?
When we are in places where we should feel very secure, hearing loss can cause us to feel quite uneasy. But you put yourself at ease and more thoroughly enjoy life when you get hearing aids. This is known as peace of mind.
It’s likely you don’t realize how much you’re missing
You may not even know what you’re missing, just like the babies who hear their mother’s voice for the first time. Hearing loss advances gradually in most cases. It’s possible that you have forgotten what hearing well is like.
You’ll be amazed when, suddenly, you can hear again. You’ll regret neglecting it this long. Think you may have some degree of hearing loss? Find out exactly what you’ve been missing by giving us a call for a hearing assessment.
