A downstairs bedroom saves an enormous amount of legwork and stair climbing for the carer. Food is easier to serve and it reaches the patient while still moderately hot. Almost everyone who has done a stint of upstairs nursing for a long time has dropped at least one lot of food on the stairs. Also, if the patient is downstairs, they often feel better for being in contact with the rest of the home, unless they are very ill. Simply placing them near a window which is not draughty will allow them to see what is going on outside.

A portable radio or television is also essential for most invalids to keep them entertained. If the patient is a youngster with homework to do, try to keep a bedroom warm enough for the child to work in. Finally, don't cart all the flowers out of the temporary bedroom every night. The idea that they use up the patient's oxygen must date back to the days before oxygen was discovered. It is also a good idea to keep an air freshener in the room as the unhealthy human can sometimes affect the bouquet of the room rather badly!
