Get Well Wishes: What to Write in a Get-Well Card

Filed in Articles by on December 13, 2022

When you truly care about someone, you send them words of encouragement, this is to show that you’re keeping them in your thoughts and ready to lend a hand if they need it.

It can be challenging to know what to say when someone we know becomes unwell, particularly if it’s a serious condition.

There are many kinds of upbeat, motivating, and even humorous things you can say to someone who is unwell or injured.

Furthermore, no matter what you write, just making the effort to send a card will do a lot to cheer up the recipient. It may be a good idea to be quiet and simply listen with an open mind and heart if you’re unsure of what to say, though.

It’s absolutely acceptable if you don’t have any words of support or condolence to offer at such a time because, under such circumstances, actions speak louder than words.

Get-Well Wishes

You don’t need to write too much to significantly improve your recipient’s mood. Keep your personal message succinct, positive, and short, especially considering how much the card itself has already stated.

‣ “Be extra cautious!”

‣ “To you, steadier, stronger, and better every day,” is the toast.
