CARE + NOTES
When you, or a loved one, are going through a serious illness you may feel overwhelmed by information at a time when you are too sick or upset to absorb it.
The Care + Notes Journal is designed to be a beautiful, helpful and supportive tool to accompany you throughout your treatment and to provide you with an organised place to record your medical details: • appointments, • medications, • symptoms and • questions.
There’s also space to record your thoughts and reflections, and tranquil images are included to allow the eyes and mind to rest. A wonderful gift for cancer patients.
HOW IT WILL HELP
• Feel in control by keeping your own records and comforted by not having to remember every detail. • Allow carers to help you by making your medical information easy to access when you are not well enough to answer questions. • A gift for cancer patients or those going through a long illness, this practical but beautiful journal tells them you are with them every step of the way.
• Journals are A5 in size; Care + Notes has 111 pages. • They are section sewn: they will lay flat when you write in them. • They are covered in a premium linen cloth: Care + Notes is a dark navy linen. • Each journal includes beautiful photography. • Care + Notes has clearly defined tabs for ease of use. • Each journal comes in a beautiful light grey box. The box is equally as lovely as the journals, making it a wonderful gift for cancer patients or those going through a long illness or hospitalisation. We hope you love our Care + Notes journals as much as we do.
HOW TO HELP WHEN A FRIEND OR LOVED ONE IS GOING THROUGH AN ILLNESS
Buying a gift for cancer patients or someone who has been diagnosed with a serious illness is a wonderful way to show you care, but there are plenty of other things you can do to show that you are thinking of them throughout their treatment.
• Keep in touch: Many people visit and show support when someone first announces an illness, but as the day-to-day business of life goes on, the number of well wishers often dwindle even though the illness is still there. Simply sending a ‘thinking of you’ card, a supportive text message or dropping by for a cup of tea can be enough to get someone through another round of treatment or another day of pain.
• Offer concrete help: Offer to help with small things such as a little tidying, taking a dog for a walk or picking a child up from school. Be specific about the offer. Many people will be too polite to follow up with a request if you simply say, ‘let me know if you need any help’.
• Recreate precious moments: If someone is bed ridden or unable to travel far due to intensive treatments, they may be missing favourite movies, beauty spots or shared outings. Think about how you can re-create those moments by their bedside or near their home using mementos or video.
