Building Connections May is Better Hearing and Speech Month

May is Better Hearing and Speech Month

It’s time to celebrate Better Hearing and Speech Month! Every May we join professionals around the world to raise awareness about communication disorders. The theme for 2021 is “Building Connections” and we’re here to help you do just that. Hearing loss can make it harder to connect with loved ones, but hearing aids can help you hear clearly and strengthen your relationships.

In 1927, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association founded Better Hearing and Speech Month. Their goal was to raise awareness around hearing issues and speech disorders that can impact clear communication, and encourage people to seek treatment. This annual event has been ongoing for the past nine decades and it’s a perfect opportunity to think about your speech and hearing. This May, join us in celebrating Better Hearing and Speech Month!

Hearing Loss Makes It Harder to Connect

Some of our best memories are shared time with loved ones. Whether on a family vacation, at a wedding, or just spending the evening at home with loved ones, the most memorable moments in our lives are based on connections.

Untreated hearing loss makes it harder to connect with family and friends. Do you have hearing loss?    Take a moment to consider if you’ve experienced any of these situations:

  • You frequently ask people to repeat themselves.
  • You smile and nod along even though you have no clue what was said.
  • You can’t hear very well in group conversations or places with a lot of background noise.
  • You turn up the volume on the TV, but your family complains that it’s way too loud.
  • You have a hard time understanding the waiter at a restaurant.
  • You feel frustrated when you can’t participate in conversations.
  • You choose to stay home instead of meeting friends because it’s just too hard to connect.

If this sounds like you, then you’re experiencing some of the consequences of untreated hearing loss. When your hearing isn’t as sharp as it once was, your relationships can suffer. Hearing is vital for building and maintaining connections with loved ones.

Treating Hearing Loss

Better Hearing and Speech Month is the perfect opportunity to learn more about your hearing options! We have a range of hearing aids and assistive technology that can help you reconnect with the people you care about the most. Don’t let hearing loss hold you back or stop you from enjoying special moments with your family and friends.

Depending on your hearing loss, your best treatment option may be to wear quality hearing devices. These hearing aids are designed to help you hear in social situations. Our most popular hearing aids have speech enhancement programs to really help you focus on what’s being said. They also have background noise reduction features to dim background sounds, so you don’t get distracted by these other sounds.

Sleek and Sophisticated Hearing Aids

Modern hearing technology gets better each year. We partner with the world’s leading hearing aid manufacturers to bring you the best in hearing technology at an affordable price. Our hearing aids are beautifully crafted, ergonomic devices you’ll love wearing. 

Small Behind-the-Ear devices nestle behind your ear and are shaped to match the contours of your ear. In-the-Ear hearing aids sit within the ear, and they provide top-quality sound. Finally, In-the-Canal hearing aids rest inside the ear canal and they’re perfect for adults with active lifestyles.

Connectivity Features

Want even more from your hearing aids? We have hearing aids with connectivity features that can wirelessly connect your hearing aids to your smartphone. You’ll be able to stream audio from your phone right to your ears, and hear every word during every phone call. You can build connections with loved ones even if you can’t visit them in person.

Connectivity features also let you connect your hearing aids to the TV. You and your family can watch your favorite shows together, and no one will complain that the volume is too loud.
