28 May May is Hearing Health Month! Reasons why YOU should have your hearing checked!
May is speech and hearing month, dedicated to drawing attention to and building awareness of hearing and speech issues. Just like your eyes or your heart, your ears should be included as part of your regular health and wellness routine. Stay on top of your hearing health. Establish a baseline. Be proactive.
We challenge you to call 482-2222 and take our complimentary hearing check challenge at one of our 5 convenient locations.
Not convinced yet? For the month of may, our blog posts will include a different reason why you should have your hearing checked.
Reason 12: Hearing loss (of all degrees) can cause frustration, tension, and strain on relationships.
The worst thing to hear is “oh, nevermind”. You missed what your spouse was sharing with you, asked them to repeat, and they say “nevermind”. They are frustrated, and give up because sometimes it is just easier to move on. Maybe you are that spouse, family member, or friend, that says “don’t bother trying to tell _____, he’s not going to hear you anyway.”
Or maybe you have the hearing loss, and find it easier just to avoid the card games, or sit quietly at the family dinners, because you aren’t hearing people anyway.
If this hits home for you, whether you’re the person suspecting a hearing loss or feel that a loved one has a hearing loss, it is time to make the step and take our hearing check challenge. Confront the change in your relationships/personality head on, and make a change.
