Greeting Cards Are Good For Your Health
Shared by: Gean Swiatko-Klee
During this pandemic, many people are feeling isolated and even scared. Patients with a multitude of problems need additional support. As an RN Case Manager, my patients are important to me. Since I could not make the needed home visits, I wanted to make sure they know how important they are to me. Science has shown that receiving a greeting card with handwritten note makes people happy and confirms they are important. Each week, I send a card with a personal note, funny cartoon, Culver’s Custard Coin or a package of flower seeds. I have the ability to show my patients that they are more than a chart and they are appreciated. A personal message goes a long way to support our relationship and the improvement of their health! Nothing can replace the smile in their voice when I call and they mention the card and its contents!
