Hearing Tips for Halloween

Halloween is a fun time for all ages.

Whether your kids are headed out to trick or treat, or you are headed to a Halloween party, there are a few things to keep in mind.

  1. Make sure costumes fit properly, and don’t impede any hearing devices.

Makeup, glitter and hairspray should be applied before you putting hearing aids in your ears. They can gum up or add moisture to the hearing aids, causing them to not operate properly.

Make sure that masks, scarves, and other parts of the costume aren’t blocking hearing aids. And, costumes should fit properly to prevent falls and tripping.

  1. Take a flashlight + wear reflective items.

You want to make sure kids are visible to cars and other pedestrians. A flashlight, glow sticks or at minimum, reflective tape will help.

Additionally, you might want to consider a bright badge that alerts others to your hearing loss.

  1. Accompany your child or make sure he or she is with a group.

Younger kids need to be with a parent. Older kids should stay with groups.

If your child is with a group of friends, ensure they have some method to get in contact with you.

  1. Check hearing aids before you leave the house.

Make sure the batteries are fully charged. Check for obstructions. Check the volume. All the things, you normally do – but since it’s probably later in the day, it’s not part of the usual routine.

It’s important to have fun AND stay safe.

If you are noticing your hearing devices aren’t working at their best level, you should come in and get them checked before the big day.
