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

TikTok has some really awesome videos you’ve most likely seen. Babies hearing the voice of their mother for the first time after being fitted for a hearing aid. In some of these videos, the baby is hesitant at first. When the doctor tries to place the hearing aid in their ears, they fight against it. They could cry before they smile with joy. A range of emotions envelopes them. They are not sure what to expect. But ultimately, with restored hearing, the world suddenly opens up for them. The smiles and the laughter are enough to cause you to burst into tears of joy!

But anyone can have this life-altering moment.

If you’re feeling concerned about using a hearing aid, you’re not alone. If you’re feeling rather anxious about this process it doesn’t mean you’re a baby.
When people of any age experience hearing aids they may cry tears of joy, let’s explore why.

Music to your ears

You might not have even recognized it. It advanced so slowly. You don’t take pleasure in music like you once did. It just doesn’t seem as enjoyable as it once did. Sometimes, it is even aggravating. Turning it up makes it even worse.

It’s not simply volume that is impacted by hearing loss. Sometimes, only specific tones of sound are impacted.
Every musician knows that the notes flow together to make a unified sound that resonates as waves move into your ears. Music just isn’t the same if you are unable to hear the amazing complexity of the notes.

When you wear your hearing aid, all of a sudden you can hear those once-missing notes. Once more, music comes alive. It becomes a wonderful joy in your life that was lost.

The laughter of a child

Do you recall what a child’s laughter sounds like? You may have forgotten this beautiful sound experience if you’ve chosen not to use your hearing aids. Rejuvenate your ability to hear and rediscover these magical moments with your grandkids.

Relationships restored

Relationships can be significantly strained by neglected hearing loss. People get irritated. It can frequently result in more arguing. It can even cause an individual with hearing loss to separate themselves, so they don’t feel like a burden.

While others are talking and enjoying each other’s company, the individual with hearing loss will feel disconnected and will often isolate themselves.

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 consider hearing aids if you’re missing these things in your life.

You feel more secure at home

Are you concerned that you may be missing important safety sounds? If a loved one was hurt and yelling out to you, would you hear them? If the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm sounded, would you be able to hear them? Could you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even hear it ring?

Do you worry that you won’t be able to hear approaching traffic or pedestrian signals when out for a stroll?

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

Whatever you’re missing, you may not even realize it

Just like the babies who’ve never heard their mother’s voices, you might not realize what you’re missing. In most situations, hearing loss is a gradual progressive process. It’s possible that you have forgotten what hearing well is like.

You’ll be surprised when, suddenly, you can hear again. You’ll wish you addressed it sooner. Think your hearing loss isn’t that advanced? Contact us today to schedule a hearing exam and see what you’ve been missing.
