This article deals with the family’s role in providing support for the care of their sick ones in the hospital and at home, and, especially, with the importance of their participation during the hospital admission process. The relatives’ feelings concerning accompaniment, care and interaction of loved ones who are going through a process of illness and recovery are expressed in health centres where Nursing students from The University of Antioquía, Colombia, perform clinical practice. Proposals to improve and facilitate such situations are also dealt with.
