Give Yourself the Gift of Better Hearing
by Nola Aronson

In 30 years as a community audiologist, I've lost count of how many times I've seen the look of joy on someone's face when they regain the power of healthy hearing. To again be able to clearly hear and understand your loved ones; to have clear communication; to not feel left out from the world - it is a powerful experience.

Healthy hearing really is a gift that makes a lasting difference, and it's a gift you deserve.

You don't need to keep struggling to hear conversations. If you're dealing with hearing loss, now is the perfect time to schedule a free hearing screening to assess your hearing, identify the risks and, most importantly, develop a plan for ensuring your hearing health.

As the Santa Clarita Valley's most trusted audiologist, we offer a wide range of hearing aids that are powerful and discreet, in addition to hearing healthcare that includes free adjustments, settings and batteries.

Healthy hearing has proven, positive impacts on whole-body health and social interaction, and caring for your hearing now can even help lessen the risks for serious problems such as depression, dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
This holiday season, give yourself the gift of better hearing. Free hearing screenings are available.

Be a Santa to SCV Seniors
You can help make seniors' holiday hopes come true - and all you need to do is pick up a gift tag from a participating Be a Santa business! Beginning November 16, SCV residents can drop into numerous local businesses, pick an ornament off a tree and help a senior feel special during the holidays. The ornaments have the senior's name and gift preferences; all you have to do is purchase the gift, put it in a gift bag and return it to one of the participating stores. Sounds like fun, right?
