Join the Club: Plan Ahead for Debt-Free Holiday ShoppingNovember 2023
In what has become an annual holiday tradition, Acadian Hearing is offering the opportunity for someone in the community to receive the gift of better hearing for the holidays. This is the fifth year of the giveaway event. Nominations are open through November 30, and one lucky winner will receive a set of advanced technology hearing aids.
The holiday season is supposed to be a time of joy and reconnecting, but for someone with hearing loss, it can also be a time of incredible stress and isolation. Dr. Heidi Sorrells with Acadian Hearing explains that large, noisy holiday parties and family get-togethers can be frustrating when you are struggling to follow the conversation. Multiple conversations can be difficult to understand and it can be uncomfortable to ask people to repeat themselves too often.
More than 48 million Americans have hearing loss – that’s one out of every eight people. And it’s not just the seniors who experience hearing loss. Sixty-five percent of all people with hearing difficulties are younger than retirement age. Hearing loss impacts almost every family, with at least one person around the dinner table struggling to engage in conversations, missing the punchline of the joke and feeling lonely in the middle of a happy group of people they care about.
Many people assume that hearing aids will be unattractive, uncomfortable or burdensome, but Dr. Sorrells explains that today’s hearing aids offer huge advancements in technology packaged in a very small, discreet package. “Many styles can only be detected if you are looking for them, and remember, a hearing aid is always less noticeable than someone who is sitting on the sidelines of their life due to hearing loss.”
Acadian is committed to making someone’s holiday better by giving them the gift of better hearing. If you have a friend or loved one who you believe would benefit from hearing aids, nominate them by completing the form online at www.AcadianHearingServices.com by November 30. Forms are also available in both offices in Lake Charles, 555 Dr. Michael DeBakey Dr., Suite 104, or 2626 Country Club Rd.
The winner will be invited to have a comprehensive hearing assessment and be fitted with premium hearing aid technology to ensure they experience the beautiful sounds of the Christmas season.
