Emotional support and compassionate care are parts of the healing process
Therapists often develop close bonds and relationships with their patients while all the time maintaining their professionalism. A smile, a kind word, a squeeze of the hand, make all the difference to patients. What patients need most when recovering from surgery or some other ailment is strong emotional support.
Research indicates that when patients feel valued and loved they respond better to treatment. That’s why medical professionals are trained to pay great attention to how patients are feeling emotionally. A gentle and sensitive approach, as part of compassionate care, can put patients at their ease and help them relax. Being able to relax in the sure knowledge that you are being well looked after is key to quality care.
Patients are in constant contact with hospital or nursing home staff, whether it’s cleaners, cooks, nurses, therapists or doctors. During the healing process, patients rely on social interactions with these people. If these interactions are positive and friendly, patients pick up this vibe and feel more at ease.
