The Sound of a New Beginning

A senior woman embracing her granddaughter and laughing. They are wearing casual clothing and are sitting in a garden at a baby shower.

You’ve seen the videos on TikTok. Babies hearing their mother’s voices for the first time after being fitted for a hearing aid. Sometimes, initially, the baby is resistant. They fight when the doctor attempts to place the device in their ear. They may cry before they smile with joy. A range of emotions overtakes them. They don’t know what to expect. But finally, their hearing is restored and the world suddenly opens up. The laughter and the smiles are enough to cause you to erupt into tears of joy!

But anybody can have this life-changing moment.

If you’re feeling concerned about using a hearing aid, you’re not by yourself. If you’re feeling somewhat anxious about this process it doesn’t mean you’re a baby.
Let’s explore how individuals of any age may cry tears of joy when they wear their hearing aid.

The sweet sound of music

You may not have even noticed it. It developed so slowly. You don’t take pleasure in music like you used to. You’re just not that into it anymore. It even aggravates you at times. And the higher the volume the more annoying it gets.

Hearing loss doesn’t only impact the volume you can hear. In some cases, only certain notes of sound are impacted.
All musicians know that the notes work together to make a single sound that resonates as waves move into your ears. If you can’t hear the magnificent complexity of music, it’s just not the same.

When you use your hearing aid, all of a sudden you can hear those once-silent notes. Once again, music comes to life. It was once a great pleasure in your life and now you have it back.

A child’s laughter

Do you recall what a child’s laughing sounds like? You may have forgotten this beautiful sound experience if you have chosen not to use your hearing aids. Rediscover these magical moments with your grandkids by rejuvenating your hearing.

Relationships restored

Untreated hearing loss can put a considerable strain on relationships. People get frustrated. It can often result in more arguing. And the individual with hearing loss will often feel like a burden causing them to isolate themselves.

They may avoid social clubs or dinner out because they feel secluded and disconnected while others have a conversation.

Hobbies less enjoyable so you’ve given many of them up?

The simple act of getting your hearing back will revive your relationships with a significant other, brothers and sisters, kids, and friends.
Learn to talk to one another again. Have long talks. Get back to doing the things you enjoy and spending time with people you love.

If you miss this in your life, it’s time to reassess that hearing aid.

Feeling safer in your home

Do you feel troubled about what you’re unable to hear? If a loved one was injured and yelling out to you, would you be able to hear them? Would you be able to hear the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke detector? Would you miss the ringing of the phone when an important call was coming in?

When you stroll through the neighborhood, are you confident that you’ll hear approaching traffic, pedestrian signals, or a bicycle bell?

These “what if’s” can make us feel insecure in places where we should feel perfectly safe. But you put yourself at ease and more thoroughly enjoy life when you get hearing aids. You’ll experience peace of mind.

It’s likely you don’t know how much you’re missing

You may not even be aware of what you’re missing, just like the babies who hear their mother’s voice for the first time. In most cases, hearing loss is a gradual progressive process. It’s possible that you’ve forgotten what hearing well is like.

When you can suddenly hear again, you’ll be astonished. You’ll wish you dealt with it sooner. Think your hearing loss isn’t that advanced? Contact us today to schedule a hearing assessment and see what you’ve been missing.
