California is a state for outdoor lovers that’s great for the person who walks the trails in Yosemite, skis at Lake Tahoe or surfs on the beaches in Santa Barbara.
It’s also a state full of music and film lovers with thousands of thriving businesses, and is a laid-back place where socializing with friends is a no brainer.
What is it that binds these aspects of California’s culture? The way that Californians can hear nature and each other. However, if you can’t hear warnings from lifeguards, the beach can become hazardous. There is also the everyday need to hear radio traffic updates, take business calls and hear presentations.
Think about your own lifestyle. If your hearing has started to deteriorate, are you noticing it in the things you love to do? Can you still hear the sounds of nature as you walk the trails? Does the music at the Fillmore or the Hollywood Bowl still sound as crisp as it used to? When you share a glass or two of wine in Napa Valley, can you still hear the clink of glasses and the sound of wine glugging in the bottle and – more importantly – can you still converse with friends the way you need to?
Life in California is often very dependent on our senses, and hearing is among the most important. It’s a state where socializing matters, where culture is important and where the sound of life is as vital as the brightness of the state’s sunshine and the taste of the food and wine.
That’s why we deal with many inquiries from Californians seeking assistance with their hearing issues.
