If we have learned anything from this year, it’s how unpredictable and chaotic life can be. And, unfortunately, many people in San Antonio have been at the brunt of this, causing them serious financial burdens and impacting their hearing as a result.

It upsets us tremendously to know that this is the case, and many people are simply letting their hearing care deteriorate due to uncontrollable circumstances and are reluctant to get themselves checked out. That’s why we wanted to give back to the community and allow someone special to win a free pair of hearing aids and complimentary hearing care in our Hear for the Holidays competition.

Running throughout November, we decided our winner based on your thoughtful nominations sent in and were so touched by all of your kind intentions. Above all, we would like to say thank you to everyone who took part. It truly highlighted just how special all of you are!

And on December 22, Audicles Hearing Services announced the winner as Diane Shehane!

 

Suffering from a hearing loss for a while, Diane’s issues have been largely disguised by lip reading and watching facial expressions. However, the widespread use of face masks, which prevents lip reading, has been a major setback for Diane.

It was her friend who nominated her and described her as one of the most caring people she’d ever met and is always putting other’s needs before her own. Diane’s kind nature is carried in her role as a nurse at an assisted living and memory care facility, treating all her clients like family.

We believe Diane is one of a kind and wanted to reward her for all her efforts. By helping Diane, we’re also helping the seniors she cares for so compassionately!

Experience that counts…

As hearing care experts, we know that it takes people, on average, 7-10 years to book themselves in for an appointment. Our Hear for the Holidays competition allows someone special to treat their hearing loss and get access to comprehensive hearing care. However, we would like to see more patients approaching us early, so we can properly mitigate the issue and schedule the appropriate treatment.

If you or a loved one is experiencing signs of hearing loss, please get in touch. Our friendly team of specialists is trained to deal with any of your concerns and can properly diagnose the issue in our comprehensive hearing assessments.
