Thoughtful Gestures You Can Do For a Friend Who is Sick

With the weather becoming more erratic these couple of weeks, paired with what seems to be an insistent flu bug that has been getting around, many people around us have been falling sick.

Whether it is contracting Covid, flu, coughs or even other sicknesses, it can feel quite horrid to be stuck at home and feeling unwell. If you want to show your love and care to someone who has fallen sick, here are some thoughtful gestures you can do — whether they are a friend, colleague, relative or loved one. 

1. Offer to run errands for them.

If you are someone who expresses your love through acts of service, the most practical gesture you can do for someone sick is to help them run their errands.

Especially if the person who is not feeling well is the primary caretaker of their family, chances are they are feeling overwhelmed with the pending tasks they have to put on hold while they nurse themselves back to health. 

Check in with them, ask them what needs to be done — whether it is helping to pick up their kids from school, buying groceries or buying medicine from the pharmacy. Whatever it is, when you help them with an errand, you are helping to clear their headspace of one less worry. That way, they can have the peace of mind to rest and recover faster. 

2. Spend quality time with them. 

If you know someone who is sick but whose sickness is not contagious, the best gesture you can do is to drop by to visit them.

When we are sick, we often would feel miserable and bored to just stay in bed, so having someone’s company can be uplifting.

On the other hand, if what they have is contagious, that doesn't mean you cannot spend quality time with them!

Schedule a virtual call with them, either to have comforting conversations or even to get into a silly game online like Skribbl or Kahoot. This little gesture can help take their mind off their discomfort and put a smile back on their faces. 

But be sure to check in with them to see if they are up for it, otherwise you might make them feel obliged when they would much rather be resting. 

3. Send them home cooked food. 

If you know someone who lives nearby is not feeling too well, sharing your home cooked food with them is an incredibly thoughtful gesture that will go a long way.

Whether it is sending them some heartwarming soup or home cooked, nourishing dishes, wholesome meals can make them feel better instantly.

If you have no time to send it over, there are so many options of delivery available now, you can easily deliver it to them as well. This thoughtful gesture is definitely something that will make the other person feel loved and cared for. 

4. Send them thoughtful care packages. 

If you are looking to go above and beyond but might be too caught up to have the capacity to do any other gestures mentioned above, the best way to show your love to someone who is not feeling well is to send them thoughtful care packages. 

Be it in the form of get-well-soon gifts with nourishing products to make them recover sooner, or Covid care packages to help them tide through this difficult period, a thoughtful gift will mean a lot to them.
