About your Relative
Looking after your relative: On a practical level you will need to bring in loose and comfortable clothing with smooth seams for your relative, as well as toiletries and washing liquid for their laundry. Clothing such as tracksuit bottoms, T-shirts, socks, cotton underwear (boxer shorts are good) and soft shoes with a rubber sole, slightly larger and wider than normal, are all necessary to bring in. If possible, please mark the clothes with your relative’s name in order to avoid any confusion or loss of property.
Practical Tips: You may find it useful to have a notebook to write down details of your relative’s treatments and rehabilitation programme, contact numbers for key members of staff and a place to write any questions you may need to ask. You and your relative will have a lot of information to digest over the weeks and months of their rehabilitation programme.
