For Family ​& Visitors

The support your friend or loved one needs

Even if you’re not the patient, going to the hospital can be overwhelming. If you don’t fully understand your loved one’s condition or are unsure about what to expect, feelings of helplessness and confusion are common.

But you have some options. As a friend or relative, you can help facilitate healing by making someone feel comfortable, reassuring them about their safety and keeping them informed. The best way to do that is to find out for yourself what’s happening.
