How to write a get well soon note


  • Don’t ask questions
  • Be warm and positive but not inappropriately optimistic 
  • Give support if you can



Explain why you are writing

 I was sorry to hear from my parents that you are unwell

Be positive

Being ill is never fun, but I am sure that Aunt Jane is taking good care of you. 

Be helpful

I came across a book that I think you'll find interesting. It's by Mary Beard. I'll send you a link but you can download it as an audio book, too. I can help you put it on your iPad if you like.

I look forward to seeing you when you're up for having visitors.
