    The Doctor Is In – Time to See Your Doctor in Person

    “We are honored to have more Doctors to help serve the thousands of patients who have placed their trust in our network of primary physicians and healthcare professionals in California,” said Dr. Albert Arteaga founder and Chief Executive officer of LaSalle Medical Associates, Inc. Left to Right: Dr. Joseph V. Selvarj, Dr. Albert Arteaga, Dr. Cheryl Emoto, and Dr. Felix A. Albano.“We are honored to have more Doctors to help serve the thousands of patients who have placed their trust in our network of primary physicians and healthcare professionals in California,” said Dr. Albert Arteaga founder and Chief Executive officer of LaSalle Medical Associates, Inc. Left to Right: Dr. Joseph V. Selvarj, Dr. Albert Arteaga, Dr. Cheryl Emoto, and Dr. Felix A. Albano.

     “People are tired of virtual doctor visits,” says LaSalle President Dr. Albert Arteaga, “they want to see their doctor in person again, and we want them to know that at LaSalle Medical Associates, the doctor is in.”

     (Redlands, Calif.)  The Covid-19 pandemic in the USA has many people feeling like they are between a rock and a hard place. On the one hand, deaths and hospitalizations are declining, but on the other hand, a new variation is causing rising infections.

    The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) says the pandemic is receding, but people still need to take precautions.

    Dr. Anthony Stephen Fauci OMRI director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the Chief Medical Advisor to the President is saying that we are moving from a pandemic to a less virulent phase, the Associated Press reported on April 27.

    In other words, Covid is not going away. Like colds or the flu, it may be here to stay, but weaker. But that does not mean we can just pretend everything is like it was before Covid-19.

    Dr. Albert Arteaga, the President of LaSalle Medical Associates, says that the health care providers that provide services through his organization’s network, have been seeing patients remotely for the past two years and those patients want personal patient-to-doctor contact again.

    “Thankfully,” says Arteaga, “we now are in a position to accommodate in-person patient visits again. At LaSalle, the doctor is in!”

    To wear a mask or not wear a mask, that is the question. One person who still wears a mask when she goes to the supermarket said, “I still wear a mask when I’m out in public places because in the two years we’ve all been told we should wear them, I have not had a cold or the flu, let alone the Covid. Masks seem to keep all the viruses away.”

    LaSalle Medical Associates operates clinics in Fontana, Hesperia, Rialto, Victorville and two in San Bernardino. La Salle has also been teaming up with community-based organizations, including churches, to administer free Covid vaccine shots.

    Friendship Is Good for Our Mental Health

    The new Bus Shelter Ad for Making Hope Happen's nland Empire Men’s Mental Health Program

    The new Bus Shelter Ad for Making Hope Happen’s Inland Empire Men’s Mental Health Program’s campaign: Friendship is good for our mental health.

    “One of the things we learn in Adult Mental Health First Aid, is that spending time with your friends is good for your mental health,” said Ceseña.

    (San Bernardino, Calif.)  “It’s one of those ‘everybody knows’ things, that men tend to be reluctant to ask for help when they need it. To counter the negative stigma that’s attached to the whole mental health industry, we now offer classes for people who have friends or family that may be going through some tough times,” said Inland Empire Men’s Mental Health Program Manager Gerzon Ceseña.

    The Making Hope Happen Foundation offers free classes through its Inland Empire Men’s Mental Health program for people who would like to help adults and youngsters who may be having a tough time.

    Ceseña says, “We have three classes that teach about the warning signs for things ranging from aggressive acting-out to panic attacks, from depression to suicidal thoughts, and the right and wrong ways to approach those who are going through a rough patch and help them.”

    “One of the things we learn in Adult Mental Health First Aid, is that spending time with your friends is good for your mental health,” said Ceseña.

    The three classes are: QPR (Question / Persuade / Refer) Gatekeeper, Adult Mental Health First Aid and Youth Mental Health First Aid.

    The QPR Gatekeeper course is the shortest of the three, taking only about an hour to 90 minutes, depending on how many people are enrolled and the number of questions that are raised during the training. It covers the essentials of recognizing problem symptoms and how to help.

    Andy Quintana and Perry Madison in a Dameron Communicaitons commercial for the Men’s Mental Health Foundation filmed to run until November 2022. Directed by Shani Renee Hamilton, written and produced by Carl Dameron.

    The Adult Mental Health First Aid class has seven sections and includes videos, role-playing and descriptive scenarios so participants can rehearse realistic situations with a knowledgeable instructor and be prepared to help someone who might be reluctant to open up to mental health professional but will talk with a friend.

    Youth Mental Health First Aid has a self-paced opening section, followed by four more sections that cover various aspects of how to be an effective friend to a youth having problems.

    Ceseña recommends the QPR Gatekeeper course as a first step for people who are interested in the training. “From there, QPR grads can go on to either the Adult or Youth First Aid class, depending on their individual focus,” he notes. Classes are delivered online via the Zoom Video Conference tool.

    Skip and Cathy Chappell Donate New Kitchen and Bedrooms to Hospitality House  

    long time Salvation Army supporters Skip and Cathy Chappell

    Long time Salvation Army supporters Skip and Cathy Chappell, Hospitality House Director Naomi Goforth and Major Martha Trimmer inspect the Hospitality House freezer.

     

    (Redlands, Calif.)  The Salvation Army’s Hospitably House had a big problem.  The kitchen and bedrooms were just worn out.  The problem was The San Bernardino Corps didn’t have the money to replace the 30-year-old kitchen.  What to do?

    Scott Carlson, The Salvation Army’s donor relations director thought of long time Salvation Army supporters Skip and Cathy Chappell. The couple have helped other Corps in Sothern California, so Carlson asked for help.

    “The Chappell’s were eager to provide funding for a new kitchen when I described the need,” said Carlson.  “But when they toured the Hospitably House, met some residents they saw the need for new beds and bedroom furniture as well as new kitchen equipment”.

    “All together, they decided to provide funding for all new kitchen equipment, new beds and new bedroom furnishings for all 21 units at the Hospitality house”, said Carlson.

    “We are so very happy and honored to receive this wonderful gift.  This changes the lives for the better for our families who come to stay in the shelter,” said Hospitably House Director Naomi Goforth.

    “We are so happy to help,” said Cathy Chappell. “We saw the need and knew we had to help these families through a very tough time,” she added.

    The Hospitality House is The Salvation Army’s homeless shelter for families and single women.

    The Hospitality House provided 31,534 nights of shelter to families and children experiencing homelessness. 1,612 children participated in educational and recreational programs last year. Many supportive services are provided with each night of shelter including meals, laundry, hot showers, tutoring and case management.

    The people served at The Salvation Army shelter come from all walks of life. The challenges of homelessness touch all ethnic groups, family types and ages. Many people believe the Salvation Army shelter only accepts women and children.  But that’s not true.  Men are welcome if they are a part of a family unit with children.  When it comes to families, children are the piece that is necessary to provide services.

    The issue of homelessness continues to disrupt many families in the Inland Empire region. These displaced individuals are thrust into living situations that make them vulnerable to many problems.

    Long time Salvation Army supporters Skip and Cathy Chappell do Nate new bedroom furniture to The Salvation Army Hospitality House.

    Long time Salvation Army supporters Skip and Cathy Chappell donate new bedroom furniture to The Salvation Army Hospitality House.  Salvations Army staff and volunteers put the all of the furniture together. 

    “Without proper and safe daily rest and food, health begins to decline. Anxiety caused by the uncertainty of finding needed resources causes fatigue, stress, and the breakdown of vital family relationships,” said Goforth.

    The Salvation Army works with each homeless or transitional housing client to set up a Self-Improvement Plan that will move his or her family toward future independence, resolution of homelessness , and retention of stable housing long term.
