Au Pair’s Monument Presentation

Ophelia’s Diary.

I am taking DC Educational Trip class, and the final project for the third class was designing your own Monument.

There were 17 Au Pairs in my class at Peirce College in Philadelphia. Including me, there were 4 Au Pairs from Go Au Pair agency. All of these Au Pairs got together and showed the monuments they designed.Au pair Go  Au pair in class

Some Au Pairs designed monuments to a memory the history of their countries. Some Au Pairs used the monuments to remember their family.Au pair Go  Au Pair in class

My monument was a Valentine’s Day gift for my boyfriend. I spent a whole week on it. And he really likes it a lot.

We had a great day sharing our ideas and stories together. We all love this class a lot. We are looking forward to our trip to Washington DC with Cultural Hi-Ways in March, 2014

Au Pairs and winter colds.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) says that Americans catch one billion colds per year and as many as 20% of Americans get the flu. Moreover, 7 in 10 Americans use over-the-counter medicines to treat cold, cough and flu symptoms.

Many Au Pairs become sick when they are taking care of sick kids. I advise my Au-Pairs to get a flu shot at a local pharmacy before the flu season,  preferably in the fall. Aupair flushot

All Au Pairs have travel insurance that is designed for emergency situations. Using the Au Pair insurance for non-emergency situation,  may cost an Au Pair more than paying with cash.  Au Pair’s insurance covers just a part of the care which often depends on many factors.

If you have cold symptoms, you can always ask a pharmacist for an advice. Pharmacists are trained experts in the use of medicines. The pharmacist can also recommend when you should see a physician or seek other medical care based on your symptoms.  Many Walgreens take care clinics and CVS minute clinics in Philadelphia open from Monday to Friday from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm and on weekends from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, where everyone can get treatment without appointment and get the medication right away.

Always ask about the cost of the treatment  before scheduling an appointment. Some doctors offer discounts for patients without comprehensive insurance.  If you find that you need medical help constantly, you can upgrade your insurance policy anytime and I can help you with it.

If you have a cold, you can care for yourself by using some traditional methods, drinking warm beverages like tea and hot apple cider, wrapped in a quilt or wearing a warm pajamas and socks after a steaming hot bath or shower, and getting rest.

Prevention off illness is always the best remedy.
