Holidays & At Home Hearing Tests with Miracle Ear

 

 Hi everyone! Are you ready for the holidays? I’m still shopping; but I’m almost done. Thank you Jesus!! My budget and spirit are especially happy laughing. I can’t wait to sit down and spend time catching up with my mom and sister. I know I see them everyday. But, it’s so hard with all of the demands of work and life to spend true quality time catching up. I really love those times.

That’s when I get to hear all of the stories of my mom’s childhood. It’s so inspiring to hear all of the love, and the simplicity of things back then. I also love getting the good “deets” or “tea” on how my mom used to act when she was younger wink. My mom was a quite a pistol back in the day, so I don’t want to miss anything. That’s why I was so excited to partner with Miracle Ear.

We really take our hearing for granted. I spend over 50% of my day listening to loud music in my car or through my headphones, and I couldn’t tell you the last time I got my hearing tested. Unfortunately, it was something I didn’t make a priority. So, imagine how surprised I was to find out that Miracle Ear offers FREE at home hearing tests. Yep, you can do it at home.

All you need to do is sign on to your computer, and go to the Miracle Ear website. Once on the site, you’ll click on the hearing test feature; and begin the test. The test is super easy; it mimics different scenarios where you’re having a conversation with someone in a public place with background noises   (e.g. home, coffee shop, train station, etc.). The goal is to make sure you’re able to follow the conversations, and you’ll be asked questions to make sure you captured the conversation. Gone are the days of listening for the beep. This test uses real-life situations to evaluate your hearing levels.

Your results are available immediately after the test, and you’re given tips on things you can do to preserve your hearing, or advised if you should be evaluated further for a hearing device. The information is presented in a way that shows Miracle Ear wants to be your partner in ensuring your hearing is enhanced and/or preserved. You’re even able to email the results to yourself to review later, or share with your family.

Miracle Ear really wants to make sure we’re living our best lives possible through preserving or enhancing our hearing. I would totally give this test to mom. Mom tends to get nervous when we go to any doctor’s office. But, this at home hearing test gives me an easy way to get an idea of her hearing levels in a non-intrusive way. That can be a god’s send when dealing with seniors. Their independence is so important to them, and they’re scared of anything that jeopardizes that.

 

So, thank you Miracle Ear for making me think about my own hearing, on top of giving me a solution that I can use for my mom. Make sure you check out this great test, and all of the things that Miracle Ear offers. We also deserve to “hear a better day”. Until we meet again!
