WE SERVICE WHAT WE SELL!! It’s always easy to tell a Bostonian. The accent, the big personality, the dry sense of humor can be amusing – even alarming – for we sensitive Southern Californians. But the Bostonian’s tendency to tell it like it is can be more than valuable in certain situations… say, for instance, when buying a car. Meet John Paradise, a Boston transplant who seventeen years ago brought little more than his young family and his interest in cars to San Clemente, just to give life in the snowless part of the country a try. “A try” turned…
I've always been partial to people who go above and beyond. It's a character trait I seem to consistently run across when conducting interviews with individuals utilizing the services of Hospice Care of the West and this showcase on Mr. Vernon Clover and his wife, Donna, is no exception. Vernon, who suffers from Parkinson's Disease, has been under the care of Dr. Kang Hsu, Medical Director at Hospice Care of the West, for nearly three years. In that time, Dr. Hsu and the man he calls "one of his favorite patients," frequently chatted about the former high school driver's education…
When you’re feeling under the weather and need your prescription filled, there is something said for speedy service that is professional and above all: caring. Chances are, you’ve spent more time than you wanted to in the waiting room at your doctor’s office. You don’t feel well, and the last thing you want to do is stop somewhere else to fill your prescriptions. All of it is enough to make you want to call your mother to come take care of you. Well, that’s exactly what the folks at OC Pharmacy had in mind when they opened for business. We’ve…
Scott E. West, DDS Orange County’s premier expert in oral appliance therapy for snoring, sleep apnea and CPAP intolerance I bet you didn’t know you could sleep your way to a better life. That’s exactly what Scott E. West, DDS, helps his patients do. Focusing on Snoring, Sleep Apnea and CPAP intolerance, Dr. West has become the premier expert in oral appliance therapy. While CPAP masks are the most effective treatment protocol, it’s not always the best solution for individuals suffering from sleep apnea, a problem that affects the health and longevity of millions. “The number one treatment for sleep…
A boutique and tearoom worthy of the most iconic streets of the City of Lights We have a theory that almost everything is better when it’s French. Cheryl Turner knows it and her shop, Paris in a Cup, proves it. Paris in a Cup is a transporting experience. That is to say, once inside, you’re in Paris. Segmented into two unique experiences, Paris in a Cup greets you with a boutique where treasures from France abound (at very reasonable prices), where you can find a little beautiful something for almost anyone: imported and signature lines of tea, handmade cards, aprons,…
For the month of October, Orange Public Library has partnered with Fullerton Public Library to read Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird and brand new release, Go Set a Watchman. Join us in reading both books. We will also offer several programs to celebrate reading these books as a community. Programming will include book discussions, movie showings, a Southern cooking demonstration, a trivia contest, nostalgic games, music performances and more. There will also be an engaging speaking presentation called Law and Order: Atticus Finch by Constitutional Law expert and fellow literature fan, Dr. John Eastman of Chapman University. To Kill…
A Story of Courage, Resilience and Family When her father, Richard Bentley, entered Hospice Care of the West, Karen Garber, felt the palpable 11th hour strike on his life until documentary filmmaker, Jay Gianukos, arrived. From behind the video camera, Jay asked questions to guide Mr. Bentley and his family on a tour of his life that will now live on for generations. From his Park Terrace home in Rancho Santa Margarita, Mr. Bentley relived his days serving as a pilot in World War II, prison camp and the aftermath of the war that reminds me of the “Unbroken” movie out…
Thanks to healthier lifestyles and advances in modern medicine, there are more Americans over the age of 65 than there have ever been. The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that by 2030, more than 20 percent of U.S. residents will be aged 65 and over, compared with 13 percent in 2010 and 9.8 percent in 1970. As our nation ages, many Americans are turning their attention to caring for aging parents. For many people, one of the most difficult conversations to have involves talking with an aging parent about extended medical care. The shifting of roles can be challenging, and emotions often…
