It’s that time of year again when everyone is rushing to get just the right Christmas presents for all of their loved ones. If you have a loved one with hearing loss, you have an opportunity to get thoughtful gifts that will make a positive impact in their life. Below are a few of the top recommended gifts for hearing impaired family and friends.
Vibrating Alarm Clock
One of the most popular items is the vibrating alarm clock. When one has reduced hearing, it could be more difficult to wake up to a regular alarm clock. That’s where using extra senses comes in. When one feels the alarm clock vibrating, it adds an extra jolt to help get a person up on time.
Similarly, it might be easier to miss when someone calls at the door. One way to help solve this issue is to give the gift of a smart doorbell. Not only do you have the sound of someone at the door, but you also get a smartphone notification alerting a person of the visitor. You can also see who is there through video.
Amplified or captioned telephones are designed with the hearing impaired in mind. Some telephones have extra loud ringers, and some have captions to outline what someone on the other line is saying. It all helps those with hearing loss stay connected, a very crucial concern for those with hearing loss.
TV listeners are devices that help those with hearing loss hear their favorite shows without raising the volume louder than would be average. It removes the strain of trying to hear from across the room and puts the sound directly in one’s ears without moving the TV set.
Gifts for hearing impaired individuals don’t have to be directly hearing-related. In fact, relaxation is one activity that can help a hearing impaired person’s mental and emotional health. With hearing loss, it can do one good to unwind and relax with a spa kit, massager, or other such amenities.
