Today’s hearing aids are rather nifty devices. They don’t only amplify your hearing, but they also enhance your life, reconnecting you to the world and the things you love in some pretty awesome ways.
Richard, one of our lovely patients, has experienced this firsthand.
He says, “Because they are Bluetooth connected to my phone, I can better listen to phone calls, the radio, sports, and even meditation therapy.”
And while the world seems a bit smaller these days, with more people staying home due to the pandemic, this doesn’t mean hearing solutions aren’t necessary. Using a TV streamer is the perfect example of how hearing technology can also benefit you while you’re relaxing at home.
What is a TV Streamer?
If you enjoy family movie night but dread the usual TV volume arguments, the good news is that you need not worry anymore. A TV streamer offers an easy and effective solution.
It allows you to set the volume to your preference and sends the TV’s audio output directly to your hearing aids for a clear and comfortable listening experience, while the rest of the family enjoys the movie at a volume level that’s ideal for them.
All major manufacturers offer TV streamers.
To make family TV volume arguments a thing of the past, call us at (325) 437-4730, and we can fix you up with one of these devices.
Updates From the Office
During Hearing Health Awareness Month, we collected a range of stories about people’s journeys to better hearing, and Bill, a long-time patient of ours, was one those who contributed.
He encouraged his wife to come and see us after noticing her hearing technology, bought from another facility, wasn’t giving her the benefits she needed. It was great to hear such positive feedback!
In other news, we recently donated 1,056 clear masks to Wylie ISD, Abilene ISD, and the 588 Education Cooperative in Alpine, to help teachers communicate better in their classrooms.
It felt so great to give back to the community in this way!
Holland Hearing is also thrilled to receive the Abilene Reporter-News’s Choice Award for Best Hearing Aid Provider for the 16th year. Thank you to everyone who voted for us!
And finally, happy birthday to our team members Claudia (Aug. 1) and Sue Ann (Sept. 20).
How Hearing Treatment Can Prevent Dementia
According to twenty-eight leading experts, cases of dementia in America could be reduced by 40 percent if the general public addresses 12 key risk factors.
Protecting ears in high-stress environments and seeking treatment at the first signs of hearing loss rank high on their list of measures people should take.
Studies show that your hearing is crucial in how your brain processes information.
Therefore, researchers believe that hearing loss prevents your brain from functioning perfectly, reducing your overall cognitive capacity.
Social isolation, often a side effect of untreated hearing loss, may add to this problem.
If you know someone who has a concern, contact the team about a comprehensive hearing assessment – the best way to diagnose an issue.
