Hello there,

All of us here at Acadian Hearing Services welcomes you to another issue of our newsletter.

So, what’s new this month? Well, it is November, and that means one thing…

Thanksgiving!

It is the time of year that can be very anxiety-provoking for a lot of people who have a hearing loss. It is difficult enough with the planning, cooking, and family drama without the added stress of communication barriers – but it doesn’t have to be that way!

The best tip for these loud gatherings is honesty. Don’t be shy to tell people what you need to make your Thanksgiving experience more comfortable, whether that be to change places at the table, to ask a family member to speak more clearly, or to turn the music down. Your friends, family, and colleagues will most likely be all too happy to accommodate you.

With the year slowly drawing to an end, we have much to be thankful for – our wonderful patients, our fantastic team, and our outstanding community. We wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving!

 

Hear For The Holidays 

Oh, and in the spirit of giving back, we’ve launched something special for the month of November. Our *Hear for The Holidays * campaign will give you the chance to nominate yourself, a friend, family member, colleague, or member of the community, who has a hearing loss, to WIN a free pair of hearing aids!

This closes at the end of the month, when we’ll be announcing the winner!

Hello and Kudos

This month, it’s all about Dr. Heidi J. Sorrells. She obtained her doctorate degree from Salus University in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania and master’s and bachelor’s degrees from Minot State University in Minot, North Dakota.

Dr. Sorrells is a certified audiologist by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and she holds a Louisiana and a Texas Audiology License. She is also a Fellow of the Academy of Audiology!

Dr. Sorrells enjoys all aspects of working in a private practice audiology clinic but especially loves the challenges of vestibular (balance) assessment and rehabilitation.

Dr. Sorrells was born and raised in a small town called Bottineau in North Dakota. She decided early on that the long, harsh winters were not for her and made her way down to warmer weather. Outside of work, Dr. Sorrells is especially fond of spending time traveling with her husband, spending time with friends and family, hiking, biking, and reading.

It’s Hearing Health Tip Time

Sticking with the theme of communication, ask fellow guests to accommodate your hearing loss, whether that’s getting them to speak up or turn the volume on the TV down. Once they know you are struggling to hear things clearly, they will almost certainly be willing to help make things easier.
