PRO HEARING SPONSORED CONTENT – It is that time of year again! The holiday season seems to sneak up faster and faster every year.

The seasonal hustle and bustle of shopping and gathering around a table is joyous for so many. While the holidays can be a blessing, they can also be stressful, especially for those struggling with hearing loss. When hearing wanes, holiday celebrations can easily become overwhelming, isolating and can even cause anxiety. Words seem to muddle and run together, especially in noisy environments, and can make conversations particularly difficult to follow. Imagine trying to engage in a conversation where every other word seems to be garbled. Now picture having to play mental “Wheel of Fortune” to fill in the blanks just enough to follow the conversation. Exhausting? You bet.

Thankfully, there is hope for the successful treatment of hearing loss! Hearing care professionals, like the audiologists at Pro Hearing, are experts at treating hearing loss.

Many are outfitted with Artificial Intelligence (AI) features that turn hearing aids into wearable health devices that can track health and fitness activity.
