Nobody wants to be stuck in a hospital, but for the times we've had to be there, Bikur Cholim has added comfort and ease to the experience. As I have been there with family members, I've been able to get food for myself in the pantry or even the patient, or just a coffee when I am about to collapse!
My sister-in-law injured her foot while in her third trimester. She was wheelchair bound and just the simplest of household tasks were daunting. As a family we were there immediately to assist with food and whatever else we could do to help. To our amazement we found Bikur Cholim was already delivering meals.
