Ways to Save on Time and Healthcare Costs for Busy Working Moms

Why does it seem that in our house, one of the kiddos gets sick when I feel like I don’t have time for that?  I know that sounds bad-but it’s usually around the major holidays or right around this time of year that one-or all three-of our children ends up not feeling well.  Two weeks before Thanksgiving, our oldest twin missed 5 days of school because he was ill-I was so nervous that he would be sick over Thanksgiving!  Even though he somewhat enjoyed the 5 days out of 5th grade, that meant shuffling of schedules, time at the doctor, visits to Urgent Care, and just an overall disruption of life.  Instead of our cozy home, I feel like I am in charge of the Hurst Family Healthcare Clinic for Columbus, Ohio!

Fast forward to now.  The twins turn 11 in a week.  And who is home from church today because he was up sick at night?  Lucas, our middle child.  Ugh!  And wasn’t it just last week that I had Natalie at the doctor’s office for a bacterial infection in her sinuses and an ear infection?  It doesn’t seem to stop!  See what I mean?  And no matter how much we learn from Doc McStuffins and having check ups of our own, nothing can replace the quick visits to Walgreens for a diagnosis, prescription, and hopefully getting on with our normal life!

We are so blessed to have a Walgreens Healthcare Clinic just a few miles from our house!  There are many in the Columbus area as well as in our small town.  The Walgreens Healthcare Clinics provide a lot of services-saving me time and money when it comes to my family’s healthcare.  School physicals, vaccinations, and sick visits are some of these great services at the Walgreens Healthcare Clinics.

Just within the last two years or so, I’ve begun to feel more comfortable taking the twins to an Urgent Care or Walgreens Healthcare Clinic for a quick diagnosis of strep throat or an ear infection instead of heading to the pediatrician’s office.  An extra bonus is that the Walgreens Healthcare Clinics allow you to make an appointment online.  How convenient!

 Our city is growing so rapidly.  And one of the best additions is the Walgreens just a few miles from our house.  My family’s health is so important to me, and sometimes finding someone you trust to care for them isn’t easy.  But at Walgreens, I know that their Healthcare Clinic will take excellent care of my family, and I’ll leave with the medications and other supplies I need to get everyone healthy and back to normal!  For any busy mom, with children to care for on top of all the household tasks and working outside the house, that is so important-and it brings a peace of mind!

  1. I thought it was just my girls that liked getting sick when we had something going on. One of them came down with a cold over Christmas break and the other I had to rush to the pediatrician the day before leaving for vacation, just in case. I wish we had a Healthcare Clinic closer to avoid the waits at the pediatrician’s office. #client
