How may I express concern without asking if the person is 'OK' but wanting them to be 'OK'?

It's not obvious how to do so in English. In English you might say something like "get well soon", but that's not quite what I mean

A friendly or polite phrase used to wish someone well when they are ill.

I'm looking for a standard phrase or idiom.

    Jisho had a tag for idiomatic expressions, but it probably has too many results to just sift through. jisho.org/search/%23words%20%23id – Leebo Oct 25 '19 at 5:01

Get well soon - [お大事に]{おだいじに}.

    @vqlk I learned it some time in the past. But you can find something here: japanese.stackexchange.com/questions/6032 So it's kind of a duplicate. – mic Oct 25 '19 at 14:57
