Family Health - Sicknesses & Cures

Tips for managing your little family's health

One (or more) of my little people is weak or extremely weak and their health is low. How do I raise it?

First of all, make sure there is food in the refrigerator. Next, if they are sick, you must cure the sickness. If their status shows that they are "Sick," drop them several times until their action line gives you an indication of the symptom they are having. The symptom will let you know what medication they will need from the store.

In addition to illnesses that require basic medications, our little people sometimes get infections that will require antibiotics. A physician consult will tell you if they have an infection and, if so, which antibiotic they need.

Fruits, antibacterial hand gel and vitamins (sometimes available in the Flea Market) are also helpful for improving health.

One (or more) of my little people is tired or exhausted a lot. How do I raise their energy?

The game is designed to run in "real time" so that your little people get a full night's rest when you do. The game should be closed for 6-8 hours and left un-paused so that they can sleep uninterrupted. Your little people will feel more rested if they each have a bed to sleep in. Also make sure that the Reverse Day/Night box in the Settings Menu is set to "No." smile

To completely close the game you should do so through the Multi-task Bar on your iOS device. If you don't know how to quit the game from the multi-task bar, please refer to the user manual for your device or Apple's support document about iOS multitasking.

My little person/family is depressed or a little blue. What is wrong? How can I make them happy?

Our little families will become depressed after they lose a family member. They usually recover fairly quickly from the loss though. People who “definitely” want children can become “blue” or “depressed” if they don't have them. However, those who “no way” want children will often go from happy to elated when they get them. Illnesses also bring their happiness levels down.

There are many ways to improve your little people's moods. Spend time with them; they enjoy attention from you. smile Praising them for good actions using the green glove, candy and/or fruits, purchasing home improvements, as well as keeping the house clean are just a few examples.

You can also purchase Psychotherapy services for your little person by tapping their Upgrade Me! button on their Details page.

Cure List

Here's a list of the common sicknesses in Virtual Families 2: Our Dream House and their cures. To find out which sickness your family member has, repeatedly pick up your sick little person and put them down until they display a symptom such as "Coughing", "Sneezing", "Upset stomach".

  • Coughing
    Give Antitussive Syrup
  • Headache
    Give Analgesic/Anti-inflammatory (bottle labeled "PAIN")
  • Hiccups
    Drop them onto a sink until they get a drink of water
  • Itchy
    Give Cortisone Cream
  • Sore Throat
    Give Throat Lozenges
  • Sneezing
    Give Antihistamine
  • Upset Stomach
    Give Peptic Syrup

If your family member has an infection or a serious illness, (usually seen by the person getting weaker for unknown reasons or constantly having random minor sicknesses listed above) the Doctor’s Consultation will tell you what medication (Penicillin or Vancomycin) to give them.
