Everyone at The Hearing Center MCC is looking forward to the holidays after what has been a challenging year. But despite the difficulties that people right across our communities have faced, there have been reasons to be positive during the pandemic, and we wanted to share one of them with you.
The gift of hearing
The holidays are an opportunity for families to come together, whether that’s in person or potentially this year via Zoom. And one surprise during the pandemic has been that more people are looking for ways to communicate better at home.
A great example that our specialists witnessed was the case of a couple whose planned month-long cruise was delayed due to the pandemic. Instead, they sought the help of our team for a hearing care solution, something that they’ve been putting off for some time.
Since then, they’ve been able to talk more, understand each other better, and relieve some of the stress that they were dealing with.
They are looking forward to traveling in the future as a better and happier couple. If you have recognized a hearing loss recently, or know someone who has, get in contact with our specialist at 850.474.8328.
Updates from The Office
Each of our providers and team members will be spending their time off with close family and relatives over the holidays. While it may look a little different this year, we are all excited for the time to rest, relax, and focus on what matters most.
We plan to decorate the office and add fun holiday accessories to our wardrobe – anything to add a little cheer! We are also hosting a food drive and accepting donations in our clinics’ waiting rooms.
Just to let you know, the clinics will be closed on 12/24 (at noon), 12/25, 12/31 (at noon), and closed 1/1 over the holiday period.
Please let us know if you need an appointment near these dates. In other news, audiologist Marissa Martin will be celebrating her birthday on December 2!
Her two corgis, Benji and Rex, are currently at a training camp and are doing well.
Benji has advanced to outdoor training at local venues, while Rexy is still indoors as he is a “high run risk.”
And, excitingly, our audiology extern Shelby Fraizer Burke recently got married, amid the pandemic AND hurricane Sally.
The venue lost power, but they still had a great time!
Struggling For a Holiday Gift?
The most important part of the holiday season is spending time with loved ones, whether that’s on a call or in person.
But if you know someone with a hearing loss, there are also a few great gift options!
These include TV streamers, which send sounds from your television straight to your hearing aids, and remote mics, which give you enhanced amplification when there’s lots of background noise.
In addition, clear masks are a great stocking filler, helping loved ones to interact freely with those who have a hearing loss when they’re out and about. If you’d like to know more about these potential presents, call your local office.
The team there will be able to offer you expert advice!
Riddle me This!
Everyone at The Hearing Center MCC loves playing games over the holidays (who doesn’t?!).
So, with this in mind, we’ve prepared a series of riddles for you to try and guess!
A) What is always in front of you but can’t be seen?
B) What goes up and down but doesn’t move?
C) What has hands but can’t clap?
