When a friend or loved one is sick, maybe in hospital, you may want to reach out in some way. The best thing you can do is to visit them, but if that isn’t possible then sending a get well soon card and possibly gift is a great way to let them know you’re thinking of them and wishing them a speedy recovery. A lovely card with a touching get well message can help to lift their spirits and be a reminder that people are thinking of them. It may seem like a small gesture on your part but when someone is ill then even the smallest gesture can have a big impact. And keeping a positive attitude whilst ill is important, so don’t underestimate the influence your card or gift can have.
However, when it comes to writing your message or get well wishes, knowing what to say can be tricky.
