How Can I Help? When your loved one is in the hospital, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed.
Whether they’re being diagnosed, treated or undergoing a medical procedure, you want them to know they aren’t going through it alone. And you don’t have to go through it alone either. The easiest thing you can do for a friend or family member in the hospital is educate yourself. The more you know, the more support you can provide, which can lift the patient’s burden and make them feel less alone.
Here are some resources that can help you become familiar with conditions, procedures and medications. These resources also include caregiver instructions and information that can provide some insight into what your loved one is going through.
