Being able to listen to people in a crowded environment, a common scenario around the holidays, can be frustrating if you have hearing loss, say experts with NexGen Hearing.

Hear, hear! This could be the best gift to yourself

You deserve to find out more; take a Free Hearing Test in Gordon Head this holiday season

Do you feel you’re missing important parts of conversations, or maybe you’re having a tough time hearing certain words?

Do you hear the question, “how are you feeling today” as “how are you stealing the hay?”

If so, it’s probably time to get your hearing checked out, says Perry Noble, a Registered Hearing Instrument Practitioner and clinician-owner at NexGen Hearing’s Victoria Gordon Head Hearing Clinic. Not only is the test free at NexGen Hearing, it’ll give you a good baseline to know where your hearing is at, he adds.

Hearing loss is a gradual thing

Noble says most people suffer through hearing loss for about seven years before they decide to do something about it. He notes that if hearing loss were an overnight thing, you would notice it right away.

“The people who come in to see us, typically they’re ready for change, there’s something that’s bothering them enough in their life to prompt them to come in for a test,” he says.

If you’re like many people, you may notice yourself struggling to hear certain words or sounds, often in daily conversations at home with your spouse or partner. It can be a frustrating situation for yourself and others in your life.

That’s why it’s important to have your partner accompany you for your test, Noble says, so you and the clinicians can better understand how your hearing loss is affecting someone close to you.

Here’s how the Victoria Gordon Head Hearing Clinic can help you:

  • As part of a full-time, full-service hearing centre, staff here will help you better understand what’s happening with your hearing
  • Once it’s determined whether you’ve lost some of your hearing, you’ll have the opportunity to experience the difference hearing aids can make, how they feel in your ears and how they sound in a one-on-one environment
  • If you choose to test-drive a pair of NexGen Hearing aids, you’ll have 90 days to try them out in real-world situations to see if they’re right for you.
  • Book your appointment online or by calling them at 250-385-1111 to schedule your free, no-obligation hearing test.
  • A new NexGen Hearing leasing program gives you a chance to sooner get into a pair of hearing aids that are customized to your requirements and lifestyle
