A time to be thankful.
A time to be with loved ones.
A time to be understanding.
There are a number of health problems that make the holidays less desirable than enjoyable. Hearing loss is one of those problems. Dizziness is also one of those problems. These conditions are “silent” – you cannot see hearing loss nor can you see dizziness yet the implications of these disorders can feel disabling. If you are spending the holidays with a loved one who has dizziness and/or hearing loss, please keep in mind the anxiety and even depression that can be a result of these problems. Make an extra effort to include them in activities. Also, let them know there is help. Hearing devices, especially with newer technology developed in the last 3 years, can be extremely helpful. Vestibular therapy can also be very beneficial for most types of dizziness. If you are an individual that suffers from dizziness or hearing loss, please share this message with loved ones to help them better understand your needs.
We, at 360 Balance & Hearing, are dedicated to improving the quality of life for individuals who suffer from dizziness, hearing loss and/or balance disorders. If you are visiting our site and not in the Austin area, we encourage you to visit the Vestibular Disorders Association (VEDA) to find a specialty provider near you or click here for more information.
We wish you all a blessed and enjoyable Thanksgiving holiday!
