From Me To You... Have you heard of the Sandwich Generation? It sounds like a great place to be, right? Grilled cheese, or ham and cheddar on wheat bread with a pickle on the side? Actually it is none of those. What it does involve is having children who are growing up (or have grown and fled the nest) then all of a sudden, your reliably independent parents slip and break a hip, or they don’t seem to remember like they used to, or they just need you to help them get by with daily tasks. You are sandwiched in between both generations, taking on the burden - sometimes all at once - of caring for everyone.

It is a tough spot to be in, not one that most of us prepare for, and not one that most of our parents desire either. The awkward conversations arise. Who tells Dad he should not be driving anymore? Is someone able to help Mom make sure she takes her medication? Did anyone mention plans for later life? Is there money put aside for long term care? Is there a will? Did anyone talk to Mom and Dad about funerals, or cremation? I have had most of these conversations with my parents and my in-laws in the last few months. Some of them out of necessity and some so we can all be prepared. Let me tell you, it is not easy. Then, just when you think you have it all locked in place, the future you were preparing for may end up not being the one that comes about. My mother has always planned on aging in place. She has a chair lift so she can get to her room, a life alert device so she can call for help if necessary, a cleaning service to keep up with the housework and a local meal delivery service so her freezer is fully stocked. Then there are the friends who pop by to check on her and keep her spirits up should she feel lonely. Sounds perfect, right? Well all of this was premeditated on her declining physically. The problem that is beginning to arise is that due to Long Covid (the lasting, nasty effects of the disease), she is facing other challenges. My sharp-as-a-tack mother is Estrella Publishing - Mountain View magazine

losing words, and it is driving her crazy. She is most likely having mini strokes causing the memory and coherence issues, and that is creating a situation we did not anticipate. How long can she stay in her perfect home? That is a question I am having to come to terms with. The future we all planned together has gone and a new alternative is before us. We will navigate it, sandwiched between other responsibilities and the need to parent our parents. What I would like you to come away from this letter with, is the understanding that planning is key. Not just for the obvious things, but for other eventualities. If you have a resolution this year that you follow through on, it should be this. Plan your estate. I don’t care if you are 24 or 74, you need to let people know what your wishes are- in every eventuality you can imagine. Start a conversation with your loved ones and take some of that burden away from them - you can even bring sandwiches.

Out & About

Planning any travel adventures for 2022? If you love the outdoors, and have an interest in the history of the West, opportunities abound for a bucket list-worthy trip to Casper, Wyoming the perfect stop on the way to the legendary Yellowstone National Park. Here are three great reasons - and notable anniversaries - for putting Casper and Yellowstone at the top of your 2022 travel list. 1. Yellowstone National Park turns 150 One hundred fifty years ago, Yellowstone became the world’s first national park, with its unique geological and hydrothermal wonders, along with spectacular landscapes and abundant wildlife. Whether you fly into Casper/Natrona County International Airport or begin your Wyoming adventure as an epic road trip, Casper, Wyoming, is the ideal starting point for your Yellowstone vacation. After making the most of outdoor activities in the area, you’ll be able to enjoy dining, culture and nightlife before continuing on your wilderness adventure in Yellowstone, starting at the park’s south, east or northeast entrances.

2. 40 years of amazing music and sporting events at the Ford Wyoming Center The beautiful, state-of-the-art complex is built high on a hill overlooking Casper, Casper Mountain and the scenic North Platte River. You can visit FordWyomingCenter.com/Events to see what’s coming up in 2022 and snag some tickets ahead of your visit. 3. National Historic Trails Interpretive Center celebrates 20 years If you’ve always been fascinated by the legends of the American West, the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center in Casper will be right up your alley - or wagon trail. Founded 20 years ago, the center commemorates American Indian history and the early explorers, with an emphasis on the many historic trails that have gone through Casper, including the famed Oregon, Mormon, California and Pony Express trails, as well as the Bridger and Bozeman trails. You can still see some of the remaining ruts of these trails in the area today, allowing you to imagine the legendary journeys of everyone from fur trappers and homesteaders to ranchers, miners and more as they traveled West. When you’re ready to travel, Casper has plenty of wide-open spaces and things to do, all while practicing social distancing.

Spiritual Thoughts Have you ever thought about the intricate dance we are a part of? One day I wondered what it would be like to see a time-lapse photo of the school parking lot from a bird’s-eye perspective. We would be able to see the cars pulling in and out of the school. We would be able to see the lines of cars dropping off students and picking them up. We could see the dance of life from a different perspective. I received a video call invite from a friend I had not talked to in 12 years, since I had attended seminary in New Jersey. I had cared for her new infant while she attended classes. We grew to love one another and one another’s families. I loved hearing stories of her childhood in Kenya. We both dreamed together of the future. She now serves as a pastor in Nebraska. Her daughters are 12 and 16. Our call was short. We remembered how much we loved one another’s families. There was no sadness at how much time had passed without one another and this time our dreams were

about our families getting to know one another.

The relationships we make, keep or move away from remind me of a dance too. Sometimes we are reunited with a friend and our lives move together. Other times we drift apart to other priorities and other areas. It is easy to miss the synchronization of all that happens around us if we do not have the right perspective. The Book of Ecclesiastes offers perspective. At the beginning it is full of criticism over life. The author suggests there is no purpose to life and a lot of room in it to be unhappy. Then there are these: “This is what I have seen to be good: it is fitting to eat and drink and find enjoyment in all the toil with which one toils under the sun the few days of the life God gives us; for this is our lot.” And “Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up the other.” As the new year begins, remember the beauty, fun and comfort of dancing with our friends through life. Have a bird’s eye perspective and an attitude that reminds you that we do not work in vain, but we dance through our circumstances with one another. · Open every night from 5 pm to 1 am May your new · Every child seen by a pediatrician · Faster than the emergency room year be full of · Online registration to get into queue purpose and love. or register for telehealth visit · Telehealth visits from anywhere in AZ · AHCCCS and most major insurance accepted, cash pay rates available · Easy access off 101 and I-10 · Rapid COVID testing available

Insurance Myths Insurance is one of the most useful investments you can make to protect your family, belongings and financial assets, but it’s important to know what is actually being purchased. Here are four things you should know about your auto, homeowners or renters insurance policy to ensure adequate protection in the event of an unforeseen or unexpected loss.

1. Myth: Your homeowners insurance policy covers everything One of the biggest misunderstandings many policyholders have is that if their home is damaged or destroyed their homeowners insurance policy will cover the cost of everything. Homeowners insurance covers losses or damages to your house and personal belongings in the event of a fire, sudden flooding caused by a broken pipe, or theft, but there are some situations that your policy may not cover. 2. Myth: You only need the minimum auto liability insurance coverage required by your state • Most states require drivers to carry auto liability insurance but this coverage only provides financial protection if you’re found to be legally responsible for causing injury to another person or their property. • Auto liability coverage doesn’t cover damage to your vehicle, items stolen from your vehicle, or damage from a storm or vandalism. • Collision insurance covers you if, while your vehicle is in motion, you crash into another vehicle or a fixed object, like a pothole, guardrail 8 Estrella Publishing - Mountain View magazine

or light post. This coverage is typically required by a lender when you finance a vehicle. • Comprehensive insurance is coverage that protects your vehicle when it is damaged while not in motion. This could include vandalism, theft or weather-related damage like a hailstorm or fire.

3. Myth: Renters don’t need insurance Renters insurance is affordable, however, only 41 percent of renters purchase it. Without renters insurance, you’ll have to pay out of pocket if your personal belongings are damaged in a fire or are stolen. 4. Myth: If you’re hurt in an accident caused by another driver, their auto insurance will pay Even if an auto accident is caused through no fault of your own, you may not be able to recover damages if you are hit by someone who is uninsured or underinsured. The best way to safeguard yourself is to have uninsured motorist coverage, which is usually an add-on protection. This can protect you if you are hit by someone who doesn’t have adequate insurance. Insurance is a sound investment, but can be complicated, so it’s always a good idea to speak to a highly trained agent that can provide expert advice and guidance to help ensure you are adequately protected.

Eczema Tips

3. Talk openly about eczema Many children don’t know what eczema is or even how to say it. But talking about it can help spread awareness.

A new eBook, My ECZ-ellent Day at Camp, is raising awareness and understanding about the experiences of children with eczema and how, together, we can help them better navigate the challenges. The book tells the story of Taylor, a child living with eczema, who learns to overcome difficulties and have a fun day at camp.

The eBook is one of many free resources available to caregivers at UnderstandAD.com.

On top of the physical, chronic symptoms including intense and persistent itching, patches and skin dryness - eczema can affect everything from a child’s concentration in school to their ability to do everyday activities.

Written for parents and caregivers, the book aims to share important tips for helping young children with eczema - as a caregiver and as a peer or friend. Here are three crucial things to know: 1. Learn as much as you can about the disease Eczema is complex and can affect children both physically and emotionally. That’s why it’s critical for caregivers to understand how it works, what the symptoms are and how to manage it. In addition to sharing Taylor’s summertime adventures, My ECZ-ellent Day at Camp includes a helpful field guide to give caregivers a basic understanding of the disease and its potential unseen impacts, like isolation and anxiety. These challenges can be difficult to navigate for children and caregivers alike. That’s why www.UnderstandAD.com has even more tools and resources available to help the eczema community. 2. Find different ways to have fun Children with eczema are often forced to avoid activities that can trigger their symptoms, like swimming. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t other options for them. It’s important for caregivers to help their kids focus on things they can do, as opposed to things they cannot do. 10 Estrella Publishing - Mountain View magazine

“My daughter Hadley is often asked questions about eczema that embarrass her,” says Ashley Ellis, whose daughter has severe eczema. “But many people just don’t understand what it can be like to live with eczema every day. That’s why stories like My ECZ-ellent Day at Camp are so meaningful.”

“NEA wants children living with eczema and their families to know that they are not alone, they have a whole big community to help support them and to help them find support in their journey,” said Julie Block, President and CEO, National Eczema Association. Visit www. UnderstandAD.com to read My ECZ-ellent Day at Camp and discover more helpful eczema resources and videos.

Plasma Donation Throughout the past year, you may have heard about plasma in terms of its potential use in treating COVID-19. However, for more than 80 years, plasma has been a lifeline for thousands of people who live with rare and chronic complex conditions. Plasma donations are critical in helping save lives because they are used to make life-sustaining medicine. Even with the global pandemic shedding light on the role of plasma in fighting disease, many people may not know how thousands around the country rely on plasma every day. Here are five key reasons to consider donating plasma today. 1. Plasma is used to make life-saving medicine Plasma carries out a variety of functions in the body, including helping the body fight disease. Plasma donations are processed into life-saving medicine for people with rare and chronic conditions including immunodeficiency disorders. Often, there are no alternative treatments for these conditions. Plasma donations are life-changing and provide an opportunity for patients around the country to live a happier and healthier life. 2. Plasma cannot be manufactured in a lab Even with the scientific advances in the health care industry, medicine developed from plasma can only be made from plasma donated from healthy adults. Plasma cannot be manufactured in a lab or any other artificial environment. Because of this, plasma has become a scarce yet life-changing resource for people who rely on these plasma-based medicines. 3. The plasma donation process is safe and fast Thousands of people donate plasma safely every day. Donating plasma is a low-risk procedure with minimal or no side effects. On a donor’s first visit to a plasma donation center, the whole Estrella Publishing - Mountain View magazine

process, including a physical examination, medical screening and the plasma donation, usually takes about two hours. Future visits take less time.

Because the body quickly replenishes the plasma removed during the donation process, healthy individuals may donate as often as twice in a seven-day period, with at least one day between donations. To learn more about the donation process visit www.biolifeplasma.com. 4. Many individuals are eligible to donate plasma To donate plasma, an individual must be at least 18 years of age, weigh at least 110 pounds and pass all other required donor eligibility criteria to protect the donor’s health and safety of the plasma. Healthy individuals who are eligible to donate their plasma can do so, regardless of their race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation or gender identity. 5. There is an urgent need for plasma donations With plasma donations lower than usual through the pandemic and the demand for medicine developed from plasma growing worldwide, the need for plasma is more urgent than ever. Global demand for these therapies has increased over the past 20 years - and continues to grow due to more rare diseases being identified as well as more patients being diagnosed. Everyone has the power to make a difference through plasma donation and potentially help save lives. How can you help? In addition to potentially making a positive impact on someone’s life, plasma donors are compensated in recognition of the time, commitment and the effort required for their donation. Find a plasma donation center near you at www.biolifeplasma.com.

Covid Tests

preparing for an event like a vacation. However, there is more room for error when self-testing, as opposed to having a test administered by a trained professional.

Antigen tests Also referred to as rapid tests or rapid antigen tests, these tests work by quickly identifying protein fragments from a virus and providing test results in about 15 minutes. Despite being fast, antigen tests can be less accurate than other testing options because they are less sensitive. Because no special equipment is needed, antigen tests may be performed in various community settings or at home. This convenience has made antigen tests, particularly at-home options, popular when quick results are needed, as when returning to an office or

PCR tests PCR tests are also referred to as molecular tests, viral RNA tests or nucleic acid tests. These require special equipment and are typically sent to a lab, with results often available within 24 hours, depending on location. Some PCR tests provide results in just 20 minutes, however, these tests are mostly available in healthcare environments, such as hospitals. Why would someone use a test that takes longer to get results? The answer: accuracy. PCR tests have remained a touchstone in diagnostics due to their heightened accuracy over antigen tests. They are highly sensitive and can detect very small amounts of virus genetic material in a sample, such as viral DNA. These tests have a sensitivity of about 98%, much higher than comparative data for antigen tests. This is why PCR tests can detect active infections nearly every time, and it is rare for someone uninfected to receive a positive test.

When you think about efforts to fight the spread of COVID-19, vaccinations, hand washing and masking likely come to mind. However, one important effort that must remain the first line of defense is effective testing. Testing, combined with other defensive measures, is essential to keeping ourselves and our loved ones safe. The two main types of tests authorized for detecting COVID-19 are polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests and antigen tests. Here is what you need to know about both:

When to take it: When in need of results quickly Speed: Results usually available in 15 minutes Chance of user error: High Ease of use: Doesn’t require equipment or chemicals; easy to use at home or point of care Effectiveness on variants: Low

When to take it: When in need of extremely accurate results Speed: Results usually take 24 hours; may require an appointment Chance of error: Low Ease of use: Requires equipment, chemicals and trained specialists; point-of-care options available but limited Effectiveness on variants: High LICENSED, BONDED & INSURED - LOCALLY OWNED FRANCHISE

Legal Advice

MAKE A WILL, NOT A MISTAKE While there are many forms of estate planning documents available on line, there are just as many ways to make mistakes that could cause problems for you and your loved ones.

Original documents are important. Financial institutions want to see original powers of attorney and Wills. The court process to probate a copy of a Will can be double the time and cost of probating an original. Legal terms have specific meaning. The term “heir,” when meaning “descendants,” could result in unintended rights to a spouse or sibling. Powers of attorney should not be contingent on you being incapacitated. Once you are found

Estrella Publishing - Mountain View magazine

incapacitated, you lose your legal rights to handle financial decisions. You should not have to lose your rights, when you just need help on the phone or going to the bank. Health care powers of attorney should cover mental health as well as medical health care. Avoid court intervention by having a complete health care power of attorney. If you have a revocable trust, be sure your assets are titled in the trust or made payable to a trust. If you do not have a trust, be sure you fully utilize beneficiary designations in order to avoid probate.
