If you have ever been ill, for any period of time, it is important to recall how you felt when someone encouraged you. Here are seven ways you can show someone you care when they are ill.

1. Call them.

Call the person during a time that is not too late or too early in the day. Schedule the call after their breakfast and before bedtime. This will let them know you are thinking about them although their social or work routine has changed.

2. Let them know that you are praying for them.

Express this fact in a card, phone call or person-to-person visit. This will let them know that you are taking time to intercede for them. It will be a great source of comfort.


Locate a blank card or one with empowering words. Most people normally send get-well cards. However, seldom are encouragement cards sent when the person is feeling extra despondent or losing hope.

4. Prepare a CARE PACKAGE

Use the decorative boxes in the post office or a decorative gift box. Include items you know will make them laugh, (like toys, ) refect on good things, and practical items they need.

5. Prepare a meal or have a meal prepared

Pay close attention to dietary restrictions and provide an eye pleasing meal that will encourage them to eat. This will meet a need and reduce anxiety.

6. Make them LAUGH

Send a movie or comedy show that will encourage wholesome laughter. Research shows that laughter is healing.

7. Decorate the walls of the sick room with scenic and relaxing pictures

Use framed prints of artwork or photography this will create an atmosphere that will enhance the healing process.

These are only a few steps, there are more, but if you start with these, you can make a difference in the life of someone ill.
