How should I prepare for my stay?

An important way to reduce stress before and during your hospital stay is to plan ahead so you have nothing to worry about on the home front. Personal areas to take care of may include:

  • money - pay any outstanding bills and make sure your banking is up to date
  • home - if you are single, make sure friends and/or neighbours know when you are entering hospital and when you are expected home.  Arrange collection of mail.
