Stand Up & Be Social

Get out of your hospital room and socialize, if you’re up to it, when you’re a patient. Meeting people makes you feel better. Activities like making crafts are available for patients, and attending an event like that is great to talk and share experiences with other patients if you want to.

My wonderful Mom encouraged and also wheeled or walked with me and my ever-present IV pole to places to interact with other people, like the craft room at the end of the hall, the family room in the middle of the hall, or outside in the courtyard to breathe fresh air.
