The patient should take enough rest and get good sleep. Restrict the visitors so that the patient can get enough rest. Not to strain the eyes by watching too much of T.V. or reading, can watch light programmes or light reading, indoor games. Avoid seeing programmes which can cause tension such as football matches, tragic movie scenes etc. Keep the home environment conductive to his recovery.

Encourage and allow the patient to do light work such as tending for plants, setting the dining table, helping children in their study etc. This will help the patient to develop confidence. Patient is told that he may have fever (100-101 degree F) for a few days more and it will come down to normal in a few days and he is getting antibiotics.

Some patients may become depresssed, emotionally upset or even go into more serious psychological problems needing assistance of a psychiatrist. Family members has to bear with the patient's behaviour, they have to appreciate, encourage and engage the patient in self care and other home activities. The emotional upset is a problem for short duration. With good care, attention and activity, the patient will recover.

As the patient becomes confident and stronger, he/she can gradually increase activities and reach the normal or near normal level. In two to three months, most patients are able to return to work.
