20 Things to Say to an Ill Person

Often times people are told what not to say. This is a great help in giving them an idea of what to say! Feel free to add your own ideas in the comments below. We’d love to hear them!

#1 I don’t know what to say, but I care about you

#2 I’m going to the grocery, what can I get you?

#3 Do you just need to vent? I’m all ears!

#4 If you need a good cry, I’ve got plenty of tissues and a shoulder

#5 I really admire how you are handling this. I know its difficult.

#6 I’m bringing dinner Thursday. Do you want lasagna or chicken?

#7 Can I get your kids for a playdate? My kids are bored.

#8 I cant sit still. Got any laundry I can fold?

#9 What can I pray for you about that no one else is praying for?

#10 Can I bring a few friends over to clean your house fast?

#11 I don’t have any idea what you are feeling, but I will always listen

#12 I saw these flowers and thought they’d cheer you today

#13 How can our church encourage those with chronic illness?

#14 Tell me what it is really like to be you for a day

#15 I made too much dinner for our family. Can I bring you some?

#16 You are amazing. How has your illness given you appreciation for life?

#17 Do you want me to come over while you wait for test results?  (or go to the doctor’s office with you)

#18 You listen to me better than any other friend. Thanks

#19 I have Monday free if you need me to run some errands or take you

#20 Tell me about this God who gets you through one more day?
