Happy Halloween – Consider your Costume

Happy Halloween – Consider your Costume

Halloween is the time for dress-up, though not all costumes are a great fit. If your costume involves wigs, hats, ornate earrings, and other headpieces, it might interfere with your hearing aids. If these costumes get caught on your hearing aids, it could rip them out or cause them to get lost. You should also avoid helmets and costumes that go over your ears or face. These costumes can muffle your hearing further and make it difficult to hear the world around you.

You should also consider putting reflective tape somewhere on your costume, especially if you plan on walking. While this is recommended for everyone, it’s doubly important for people with hearing loss. You might not be able to hear cars or motorcycles heading your way, and they might not be able to see you in the dark.

If you or someone you love has hearing loss, please schedule an appointment with Little Rock Audiology today.
