Here are some top tips for vacationing with hearing loss.

Are you going on vacation soon, or planning to in the coming months? A vacation is an exciting thing, especially if you don’t get around to having one very often. When traveling long distances, you’ll want to be as prepared as possible so you will have no lack. If you are traveling with a medical condition, like hearing loss, you need to prepare for related needs you’ll have along the way, too. Here are some top tips for vacationing with hearing loss.

Prepare Your Hearing Aids

Clean your hearing aids or have your audiologist clean them for you. It doesn’t hurt to have your audiologist check your hearing aids and your hearing before you go, just as you would take your car to the dealership for a checkup before crossing the country. 

Wear Your Hearing Aids

Don’t forget your hearing aids! Wear them while you travel, even if it is just a plane ride and you aren’t driving at all. You never know what directions you might need to hear along the trip, and wearing them right off the bat will prevent you from accidentally leaving them behind.

Pack Extra Hearing Aid Supplies

Pack your hearing aid’s extra supplies, like cleaning tools, extra batteries, and any other accessories. Should anything accidentally happen to your hearing aids, you’ll be prepared to get them back and running again.

Look Out for Hearing Accessible Hotels

Some hotels have hearing accessible rooms. These hotel rooms are equipped with technologies that use visual and physical cues to communicate with guests that would otherwise be done with audial devices. If you don’t sleep with your hearing aids on, these hotel rooms are worth checking out.

Be Honest about Your Hearing Condition

If you need to communicate with people on your trip and sense it apt, be honest about your hearing condition to help others understand and communicate better

Take Care of Your Overall Health

How you care for yourself overall will affect your hearing health. Avoid too much caffeine, ototoxic medications, highly-processed foods, and alcohols. Keep up with physical exercise, mental health, and good sleeping habits.
