The ride home from a sport is simple.

You just have to remember to say six words.

I love to watch you play.

– Inspired by the video “The ride home”

70% of kids quit sports before high school because it just isn’t fun anymore. That’s a staggering number. Have you ever (even though you meant well) focused on the negative things from a game or practice on the ride home from your child’s sport? Focusing on a certain six words instead can make a world of difference.

Ouch! Tips on taking care of sunburned skin this summer

A sunburn is skin damage from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. Most sunburns cause mild pain and redness but affect only the outer layer of skin. These are called first-degree burns. The red skin might hurt when you touch it. These sunburns are mild and can usually be treated at home.

Skin that is red and painful and that swells up and blisters may mean that deep skin layers and nerve endings have been damaged. These are second-degree burns. This type of sunburn is usually more painful and takes longer to heal.

How can you care for yourself at home?

• Use cool cloths on the sunburned areas.

• Take cool showers or baths often.

• Apply soothing aloe vera to sunburned areas. Do not apply lotions to blistered skin.

• A sunburn can cause a mild fever and a headache. Lie down in a cool, quiet room to relieve the headache. A headache may be caused by not getting enough fluids, called dehydration, so drinking fluids may help.

• Take anti-inflammatory medicines to reduce pain, swelling, and fever. These include ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) and naproxen (Aleve). Follow all instructions on the label.

• Use lotion to relieve the itching when your skin peels. There is nothing you can do to stop skin from peeling after a sunburn. It is part of the healing process.

• Protect your skin from the sun with sunscreen, hats with wide brims, sunglasses, and loose-fitting, tightly woven clothing that covers your arms and legs.

Caring for blisters

Small blisters usually heal on their own.

• Do not try to break the blisters. Just leave them alone.

• Do not cover the blisters unless something such as clothing is rubbing against them. If you do cover them, apply a loose bandage. You can use tape to hold the bandage on, but do not let the tape touch the blisters.

• Avoid wearing clothes or shoes or doing activities that rub or irritate the blisters until they have healed.

Larger blisters, which are the size of a nickel or larger, usually heal without problems.

• If you have a large blister, you can consider draining it, unless your doctor told you not to. Clean a needle with rubbing alcohol or soap and water, then use it to gently puncture the edge of the blister. Press the fluid in the blister toward the hole you made. Wash the blister after you have drained it, and pat it dry with clean gauze.

• Do not remove the flap of skin covering the blister unless it tears or gets dirty or pus forms under it. The flap protects the healing skin underneath.

• Put a thin layer of petroleum jelly on the bandage before you apply it. This will keep the bandage from sticking to the blister. Do not use alcohol or iodine on the blister because these may make the blister heal more slowly.

• Do not wrap tape completely around a hand, arm, foot, or leg because it could cut off the blood supply if the limb swells. If the tape is too tight, you may develop numbness, tingling, pain, or cool and pale or swollen skin.

• Change the bandage every day or when wet or dirty. Soak the bandage to remove easily.

When should you call for help?

Call your doctor or 811 now or seek immediate medical care if:

• You have signs of needing more fluids. You have sunken eyes, a dry mouth, and you pass only a little urine.

• You have signs of infection, such as:

o Increased pain, swelling, warmth, or redness.

o Red streaks leading from the area.

o Pus draining from the area.

o A fever.

Resources

Mealtime Struggles – Online Course for Parents and Caregivers (See attached poster)

Inclusion foothills would like to offer a program in Vulcan for siblings of those with special needs. (See attached poster about the High river group)

Sibshops provides a safe, confidential, non-judgmental, and fun environment where brothers and sisters of special needs siblings meet other siblings, enabling them to develop supportive relationships and coaching skills.
With a lot of fun and laughter involved, sibs have the opportunity to talk to other sibs about the good and not-so-good parts of having a sibling with special needs. Quite often, attending Sibshops is the first time a sibling meets others who “get it.”
Those who attend experience a lasting positive effect on how they feel towards their sibling, learn coping strategies for sticky situations, and leave with a better understanding of the services their sibs need. If your interested please contact the Vulcan FCSS office via Facebook or call 403-485-2192.

Are you or a loved one living with cancer?

Wellspring is a not for profit cancer support organization, and ALL of their services and programs are completely free. Their non-clinical cancer support programs meet the emotional, social and practical needs of people living with cancer for both patients and caregivers. All their programs and services are accessible to anyone living in southern Alberta or beyond via Zoom or the telephone. When it is safe to do so, they will operate in a hybrid model of both online programs and in-person programs both in Calgary and in pilot communities across southern Alberta outside of Calgary.

Since their outreach project started in March 2020, they are serving members from communities more than 100km away more than ever before, including Vulcan. Not only are these cancer patients, caregivers and families benefiting from our programs but they are being connected with a community of people ‘who get it’. They have programs for families with children, an Indigenous Cancer Sharing Circle, Young Adults, people living with a cancer that may never go away, programs just for caregivers and just for people who live in regional and remote communities and more. You can read more here:

wellspringcalgary.ca/ There is no cost or referral required to become a member.

Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT) is the recommended screening test for people aged 50 to 74 at average risk for colorectal cancer. This free, simple, at-home test checks your stool (poop) for traces of blood that you can’t see. Having regular colorectal cancer screening can prevent and detect cancer at its early stages when treatment is more effective.

Screening for Life provides free FIT kits after a brief questionnaire to determine if FIT tests are the best option for you. Go to screeningforlife.ca/order-free-fit-kit/ or call Screening for Life at 1-866-727-3926
