Tips On Staying Connected With Loved Ones Over The Holidays

As with much of this year, holiday celebrations will likely look a little different than normal. As we continue to practice social distancing and with regulations of group sizes, we can expect to celebrate in smaller numbers, so we’ve put together a few new ways to stay connected with family and friends this holiday season:

Plan Ahead 

Understand the environment that you are heading into – This is a great way to anticipate and plan for any communication issues. Ask that they try to eliminate any background noise while you’re talking over the phone or video conferencing. 

The Magic of Roger

Two of the biggest barriers for people wearing hearing aids is background noise and hearing at a distance. Both background noise and distance happen often during the holiday season, however, Roger solutions are here to the rescue!

No matter your age or your hearing loss – Roger can help in any environment to help you hear better. Ask us how!

Stock Up and Stay Prepared

Lastly, make sure you have batteries for your hearing aids so you don’t miss a sound over the holidays! We are selling them in clinic and or we can offer to mail them to you.

If you have any questions on how to communicate over the holidays, don’t wait. Connect with our expert team today. We’re here to help!

As the owner of Arnold Hearing Centres, he manages all locations, as well as handles all the marketing, reporting, meetings, and makes sure that both the staff and patients have a positive experience. Ultimately, there is a lot of pressure on Chris to ensure he delivers results year after year, but he credits the clinic’s success down to the amazing staff that has now become family. Truly, he enjoys working alongside everyone each day.
