Helping a loved one after an unexpected accident in Mid Suffolk
It is awful when you are involved in a serious accident or sustain a serious injury, as it can take months or even years to get fully back to normal and your life will usually have to change a lot during this time which can make things difficult for you.
What can be even more tough though, is when you need to support someone else through the same situation, as it can be really difficult to know exactly what you can do to help them to feel better and get back to normal, no matter how much you want them to recover.
- Be there when they need you. This doesn’t mean that you need to be physically with them every minute of every day, but let your loved one know that if they need help or even just to chat about how they are feeling, you will be available at any time of the day or night to speak with them.
- Offer to help with chores. Just small things like picking up groceries or doing their laundry can help someone suffering from a serious injury more than you can imagine. It is so difficult to get around with an injury that the smallest things become almost impossible.
- Look after the kids. if your loved one has smaller children, you could offer to take them for a week or so, to allow your loved one to heal without worrying about the welfare of their children when they can’t move around so much.
- Let them stay with you. If the injury is serious enough that they really can’t move around the house, the best thing you can do is offer to let them live with you for a few days or weeks, so that you are there to help them with anything that they need to do.
