Sending this Offer of Assistance to Family During Employee Illness will be greatly appreciated by your employee and their family.
Nobody ever expects to come down with a serious illness, so when they do they’re often unprepared – emotionally, physically and even financially.
Sending flowers and a get well card are gestures that are to be “expected,” but when you can offer to provide additional financial assistance you should offer to help.
We all know that health insurance only gets us so far
Reiterate that your thoughts are with your employee and those close to him and provide your contact representatives name and direct telephone number.

We consider [name of employee] to be one of our most valuable employees and a fine individual as well and would be most appreciative if you will let him know that we are all thinking of him.
