Make them a care basket filled with vitamins (such as zinc or vitamin C), bandages and ointments, or hot and cold packs.
People heal faster when they have cheerful spirits. So send your love things that will make them cheerful, such as an uplifting book, a hilarious movie, a stuffed animal, or a collection of love notes.
Other things you can do when someone is sick:
Send them flowers. Don’t just wait till someone is hospitalized for this gesture. Flowers are sure to brighten anyone’s day.
Get them an appointment at a sauna. Saunas are known for detoxing and healing. A couple of 10-minute treatments will make someone feel refreshed and help them heal faster.
Send them mail daily. Being stuck in bed all day is boring. Write them letters or emails on a daily basis for them to read as they rest.
Cook and clean. Taking care of the house and cooking the meals are difficult tasks when you’re sick. Help someone out by doing chores they’re not healthy enough to do so.
