When you want to say “Thanks for the get well gifts” or “Thank You for Support”, sometimes the words don’t come easily.
Here is some sample wording for several situations where thank you notes are appropriate including:
- People who visited you in the hospital
- Friends or co-workers who sent Get Well gifts
- Those who visited you at home
- People who lent household help such as dinners
- Medical professionals who went above and beyond their jobs
- Anyone who offered emotional support and understanding
Notes should be written once the patient is well enough to write them. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Sample Thank You Notes for Get Well Gifts
Thank You to Office for Sympathy During Illness
I just wanted to thank you again for your incredible kindness. My husband’s condition has been stressful, but being able to care for him without worrying about losing wages certainly lightens our load.
I so appreciate your concern and understanding. I won’t forget this!
to Doctor for Caring for Sick Relative
Dear Dr. ____,
I wanted to thank you for caring for my mother in her last days. Seeing her in such a state was certainly not easy for me but your kind, gentle, knowledgeable treatment helped me get through it. I know she thought highly of you too, which was important to me.
Please know how much I appreciate your help.
Co-Workers: Thank You for Get Well Gift Basket Delivered to Hospital
I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated the gift basket you sent to the hospital. It was such a nice surprise, and how did you know all my favorite healthy treats? You are so thoughtful to have sent it; it really lifted my spirits. Thank you all very much!
Thank You for Helping Out while I Was Ill
I want to thank you again for your invaluable help while I was sick. Cooking for our family, taking the kids out, organizing all kinds of meals– you really covered everything, and I can’t tell you how much we appreciate it all. Being sick is never easy but your assistance relieved a lot of the stress involved and let me focus on recovering. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I won’t forget it.
Thanks for Helping Out while Child Was Ill
We can’t thank you enough. Johnny breaking his arm was quite an ordeal for us but having your help with little Lydia made it much easier. We’re so glad she was spared the trauma of a scary hospital visit and seeing her brother and parents so upset. Knowing she was home with you eating a good dinner and having fun with your kids was a tremendous relief.
Thank you for your kindness and your support during our little family emergency. We appreciate it more than you know. Now our only problem is that Johnny is jealous that Lydia got a sleepover and he didn’t! 🙂
for Get Well Gift and for Visiting Hospital 1
I just wanted to let you know again how much I appreciate your support while I was in the hospital. It meant so much to me that you would take the time to come see me. Your kind words, company, and prayers really made a difference.
Thank you again for your thoughtfulness and your friendship.
Thank You for Get Well Gift and for Visiting Hospital 2
Dear Fran and Nick,
Where do I begin? I just can’t thank you enough for your support and all the goodies you brought during my hospital stay. Crafts to pass the time, flowers to brighten my room, not to mention your company to keep me happy… I appreciated it all so much. And on top of that, you even managed to crochet a beautiful baby blanket!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am very lucky to have you as future in-laws!
Thank You for Help with Sick Relative
I can’t begin to express my gratitude for what you’ve done. It hasn’t been easy dealing with things lately, but knowing I have friends like you definitely helps. From planning the details to all the financial aid you’ve generated, you’ve really gone way above and beyond the typical meaning of “friend”. Every time I think of all the time and effort you put into this, for me and my family, I’m just floored.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You’ve helped in ways I can’t even express. I will never forget this!
