Think About How You Look

Next » « Previous


Little touches can make you feel better when in hospital. For instance:

  • Take a daily shower or ask that you be cleaned.
  • Keep your hair neat and groomed as much as reasonably possible.
  • Men: 
    • Shave on a daily basis or keep your beard neat.
    • Consider trading a hospital gown for a pair of pajamas
  • Women: 
    • Consider wearing at least a bit of make-up.
    • Having someone do your hair for you generally provides a lift.
    • Wear whatever makes you feel good that doesn't unduly interfere with hospital procedures.
      • Consider your own nightgowns.
      • Someone can make a hospital gown for you.
      • You can decorate the hospital's gowns by adding ribbons, buttons and the like. (Do not add metal, suede or leather trim).
