Great Things to Hear this Valentine’s Day in Omaha

Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Living with hearing loss often offers an extra excuse to skip the lovefest and hunker down alone. That couldn’t be further from the best medicine, though!

It’s well known that hearing loss, particularly untreated and undiagnosed, can lead to isolating behaviors. It’s human nature to avoid difficulty and hearing loss makes connection and conversation exponentially more challenging. But human nature dictates a need for connection with others and these behaviors meant to add ease to our lives lead to depression and loneliness instead.

Use this February 14th as a reminder that love is all around us, just waiting to be tuned into!
