October 19, 2007, Newsletter Issue #152: Seeing people in hospital

Tip of the Week

If you are visiting a sick friend or relative in hospital, here are a few things to keep in mind. First rule - donīt stay too long unless he asks you to. He will probably be tired and may not ask you to leave if he wants to rest. Stay no more then 15 to 20 minutes. It is the fact that you visited that is important rather then how long you stay. Keep your talk positive and donīt fill the discussion about his operation unless, again, he wants to talk about it. Let him know what you are doing and how others that he may know are also doing. The aim is to not disturb his rest and recuperation and also to keep his mind on positive things to help him emotionally recover. It may even help to tell him a humorous story about something that has happened to you recently. Donīt make light of his illness but try to keep his spirits high.
