Sister Wall, a retired nurse, is serving in the Mission Office. She takes all
calls for MEDICAL CONCERNS for our missionaries. She collaborates with the missionary, President & Sister Dymock, the family, and the medical providers in our area to help each missionary receive the proper medical attention.
PAYMENT for MEDICAL SERVICES
The policy of the Church is for missionaries to use their family insurance first and then Missionary Medical second. Each missionary is instructed in the procedures they should follow when they need to visit a doctor, or fill a prescription. Missionaries who are not covered under family insurance policies will be covered under Missionary Medical Insurance.
MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL CARE
Sister Dymock is responsible for helping missionaries with mental and emotional well-being. Her professional training is in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT), but particularly her 35 years of Motherhood! Missionary work can be stressful at times, so we openly teach and discuss topics such as stress management, companionship relations, conflict resolution, depression, home-sickness, anxiety, OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder) and ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) with all missionaries.
The Adjusting to Missionary Life Booklet provides excellent resources for managing strong emotions that may arise as missionaries serve our Heavenly Father. Families are encouraged to obtain one of these booklets and review the stress management tips so they can support their missionaries in difficult times.
You can order this booklet at store.lds.org. for $1.50. A brief summary of the booklet can be viewed now by clicking on the following link:
