It is a difficult time when a close family member is in hospital abroad, especially if the patient is hospitalised for a long time without a definitive discharge date. Helsana finances insured visits to family members and also provides the patient abroad with psychological support from qualified professionals.
Having to go into hospital is never a pleasant experience, but it can be even worse if you are taken ill while abroad. The unfamiliar culture and surroundings may be quite unsettling. Language barriers can also make it more difficult to communicate with the doctors and the nursing staff.
Your hospital visit can bring a ray of hope in this situation: you can stand by the patient and help them get better by providing moral support.
