- Patient Involvement
Good news in my family this week reminded me of a favorite public service ad which covers a topic I feel strongly about -- patient involvement. This ad, put together by the Ad Council stresses that questions are the answer and recommends that individuals create a dialog with their health care providers.
(I have a thing for public service ads. To find out if you do too, check out the adcouncil youtube channel and browse through other public service ad campaigns. If you don't end up finding something you love, you will at least walk away more informed.)
- Marmalade Cat
This cute card designed by Maria K. Bell can be found on Zazzle. You can modify the card before purchase -- add a note, a poem, or a greeting -- to make it your own.
- AuPair in America
I have been hearing more and more people express frustration about a lack of options when it comes to quality child care. Through someone I know and respect who works as a Community Counselor for AuPair in America , I have learned about the work and care that goes into setting up a great match -- from identifying a qualified candidate to fostering a mutually beneficial relationship between an au pair and her host family.
It's surprisingly affordable. Plus it provides your entire family the opportunity to develop a lifelong friendship with someone from a different part of the world. If you have a bedroom to spare, look into this!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
