All of us here at Acadian Hearing Services welcome you to another issue of our newsletter.
We want to thank everyone who has participated in our Hear for The Holidays competition. We feel so privileged to have been able to spread a little hope this festive season, and we are finally happy to announce that the winner of our much-anticipated competition is… Lee LeJeune!
Lee was nominated by his daughter Julie Borill. Congratulations!
Watch the heart-warming moment when Julie read out her nomination.
We adore this time of year. It really is the season of giving. That is why we had our end of year party in November already! Our team does such a wonderful job; we decided to treat them to a celebrity-chef cooked feast in Baton Rouge – very well deserved!
We had our party early for another big reason… we wanted to be available to all our patients right through the holidays! – Except for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We know that things always seem to go wrong during the holidays (thanks to Murphy’s Law), and we want all of our patients to have optimal hearing for the holidays to make sure no one misses any of those special moments. So, we’ve made our team available for any last-minute repairs, tests, or tweaks.
We also have some exciting news for the new year! We’ll be opening another clinic! Renovations are in progress, and we are thrilled to be able to offer specialist services, with a focus on hearing aids, to more patients in 2020.
We wish all of our patients, friends, family, and colleagues a happy festive season filled with love and laughter. We look forward to keeping your holidays drama-free by providing the best service we can.
Holiday Opening Hours
We will be closing our office on Tuesday, December 24 to Wednesday, December 25 and returning to normal office hours on Thursday, December 26.
Thank you, and Happy Holidays!
Festive Sounds To Be Thankful For
It’s that joyful time of year again – the holiday season is here. With families coming together, gifts being exchanged, it’s a time for giving thanks. What are you thankful for?

It’s Hearing Health Tip Time
‘Tis the season for going out to eat with friends and family. However, finding a quiet restaurant can be a challenge at this time of the year.
If you have a hearing loss, tinnitus, or a sensory disorder, too much noise can make your symptoms worse. If your hearing is good, what impact will lots of noise have on it?
But now two apps can help you out. They can identify local restaurants and cafes that are gentler on the ears. Here’s a brief look at them:
Soundprint: View a map of local restaurants along with their sound decibel rating. You can also test the decibel levels at the restaurant you’re at to see if the environment is too loud. Share your findings by uploading them to the app. To find out more and to download, click here.
iHearU: Find ear-friendly restaurants worldwide. Any location rated four noise bars, or less is considered a safe environment. You can also find establishments that offer assistive hearing systems.
Additionally, you can report on quiet locations and add them to the app. Are you going to a livelier restaurant? Find out just how noisy it is and then arrive prepared with ear protection. To learn more and to download, click here.
And That’s All For Now
