What Is a “Sick Box?”

Question:

I was given an antique "sick box" that my great-grandmother received as a wedding gift in 1911. It is a large wooden wall hanging that contains statues of Mary and Jesus and comes with candles, oil, and holy water. What were these used for, and why do we not use them today?
