11 ways to brighten the lives of loved ones in the Hospital
Currently, the 56 bed Better Brighter Dormitory can only be found at the NHI in Kuala Lumpur. Dormitories and family rooms are available at the facility, providing a place for underprivileged families to rest and recuperate, so they may stay vigilant by their loved ones’ sides. By providing these facilities, we can help keep those less fortunate families with sick individuals seeking treatment at NHI together, allowing them to provide the sick with the personal care and emotional support they need.
WE MIGHT NOT BE IN YOUR AREA YET, BUT HERE ARE SOME IDEAS ON HOW YOU CAN HELP SUPPORT A FAMILY MEMBER OR A FRIEND WHO IS SICK.
Give the sick individual a thoughtful and useful care package.
Hot meals from the heart help to brighten anyone’s day.
Be a listening ear
Just by having someone to listen provides great emotional support.
Pick up a book, DVD, toy or a favourite game for them to pass their time.
Offer to stay in the hospital room while the family takes a coffee break or goes for a much-needed walk.
Get gift cards to restaurants or shops near the hospital for the carer.
for a day
Offer rides to school or after school activities for sibling(s) or kid(s).
Take sibling(s) or kid(s) out for a day of fun activities.
Take out the trash, do the dishes or any other house chores.
Volunteer a professional cleaning service if #9 is not your thing.
Lighten their responsibilities and it’s also a nice welcome home gift.
Whatever we do, even the smallest good deed, it is in mind for a Better Brighter Malaysia.
