Hey ,

2020 is finally coming to an end and it will be great to leave most of it behind! 

But despite the challenges we faced, there are also positive moments to rejoice and be thankful for!  

What Has Kept Us Smiling:

First, although this year has been a year of new and challenging experiences, it has not slowed our clinic down as we continue to grow.

Second, we discovered new ways to embrace modern technology through telehealth appointments and continued to serve our clients through curbside appointments.

Finally, we have celebrated with many of our patients who were finally able to physically visit us after months of quarantine.

We are honored to be part of such a close-knit community, and we wish all of our clients a wonderful holiday season and an amazing 2021!

Updates from the Office

We will be closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  Both Joni and Bre plan on spending their Christmas holiday with family.  Joni’s family is looking forward to their annual Christmas puzzle, a 1000-piece puzzle they all work together on to finish in 24 hours. 

Hopper our therapy dog has been in the clinic more and more.  He is only 10 months old, so he is still learning.  He enjoys “helping” everyone with anything, which is basically a nice way of saying he is very nosy! We found him snacking on some Post-it Notes this morning. Thankfully, we were finished with those notes.

Struggling for a Holiday Gift?

The greatest gift of the holiday season is spending time with loved ones. However, if your loved one has a hearing loss, there is a range of hearing aid accessories that could add some extra convenience (and excitement!) to their lives.

multi mic

Our personal favorite is the multi-mic, which can help patients to understand speech in noisy environments. For example, when dining out, the multi-mic can be placed in the center of the table and your group conversations will be streamed directly to your loved one’s hearing aids. 

To learn more about the multi-mic and other innovative hearing solutions, simply give me a call for advice.

 Riddle Me This!

At Big Thicket Hearing Aids & Audiology, we love playing games over the holidays (who doesn’t?!). So, with this in mind, we’ve prepared a series of riddles for you to try and guess!

A) What is always in front of you but can’t be seen?

B) What goes up and down but doesn’t move?

C) What has hands but can’t clap?

Think you know the answers? Hit “reply” on this email and send us your guesses!
