Better Hearing At Thanksgiving

Hearing Aids Paducah KY

Many of us look forward to Thanksgiving gatherings and for the chance to spend time with family and friends.  Most Thanksgiving dinners make for a noisy environment with many different conversations going on at the same time.   There is often sounds of plates being shuffled around, silverware clinging together, a kitchen fan humming in the background, and maybe some children running around the house laughing and playing.

Holiday parties with friends and family can feel overwhelming for loved ones with hearing loss. People with untreated hearing loss have reported feeling nervous to speak up in group settings out of fear that they may hear the wrong thing or not respond appropriately. Feeling lonely or isolated during a time of celebration with people you care about can make the holidays much less enjoyable. If you are concerned that you or someone at your Thanksgiving table could be experiencing hearing loss, you may find the tips below helpful for making the most of Thanksgiving this season.


  1. Wear your hearing aids. If you do not have hearing aids, it is recommended that you have a hearing screening by a professional and ask if they could help your hearing loss.
  2. Cut down the background noises like music, kitchen fan, or a TV.
  3. Remind your friends and family of your hearing loss so they know to speak up for you.
  4. Make sure you face people when you are speaking with them.
