Hearing Health for Grandparents Day

Doug Breaker

Last updated on Apr 21, 2018

 “Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do.
Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children.”
— Alex Haley

Celebrate Grandparents Day.

Grandparents Day is a special holiday which honors the care and contributions of grandparents like you. Whether you’ve been a grandparent for years, are about to become a grandparent for the first time, or are even a great-grandparent, you play a special role in your family. Over 70 million grandparents are closely involved in their grandchildren’s lives, as childcare providers, keepers of family memories and traditions, the ones teenagers turn to when mom and dad don’t “get it.” These relationships benefit both grandparents and grandchildren, emotionally and mentally. Even if distance is a factor, regular phone conversations can help build strong relationships. Don’t let hearing loss diminish this special connection.

Create and share lasting memories.

Unrushed and able to listen, grandparents are the keeper of family memories from “back in the olden days” and the upholders of family tradition, like grandma’s top secret apple pie recipe or granddad’s favorite fish holes…and his best fish tales. In turn, grandparents can listen to the long, rambling adventures of toddlers and teens without getting distracted – if they can clearly hear them. Children’s and women’s voices are higher pitched than men’s voices, and are sometimes harder for people with impaired hearing to clearly make out. Hearing loss is more common than you think. Approximately 18 percent of American adults 45-64 years old, 30 percent of adults 65-74 years old, and 47 percent of adults 75 years old, or older, have a hearing impairment.

Delight in telling people about your grandkids.

They’re one of the best reasons to get your hearing checked. A 2011 national hearing health poll by AARP/American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) noted that 50 percent of respondents said they would be more likely to seek hearing help if their grandchildren asked them to. And nearly 70 percent of poll participants would seek treatment if a loved one asked them to. Listen to your grandkids and improve your overall quality of life – and theirs.

Don’t let precious moments pass you by.

MDHearingAid offers affordable hearing aids that will help keep you connected to friends and family, this Grandparents Day and every day. We’re only a click or call away.
