What is a medical companion?
A companion can be a comrade, a domestic partner or a person to assist, live with and/or travel with the patient engaging in a medical trip. As a medical traveller, there can be changes in your health status pre and post-procedure. Therefore, it is advised to have a suitable companion accompany you who can help take care of your needs.
Who should you pick as a companion?
Medical tourists should preferably select someone who is physically and mentally able enough to support you through difficult medical times. It would also be beneficial to you if your companion has an understanding of your health condition, and of the destination where you are seeking medical care from.
A companion should be capable enough to assist you in planning and executing a medical journey and should have a calm, fun-loving nature to cheer you up during difficult moments both pre- and post-treatment.
