Even for someone who is seriously ill, everyday life can be made easier by normalizing day-to-day existence.
Your daily activities are limited by how seriously ill you are and how you feel. Relatives can describe what you like to do.
Listening to music and audio books, watching TV and movies are all ways of activating oneself. Another way of doing this is to ask relatives to bring photographs of themselves that mean a lot to you. The staff can also take you out of the treatment room and change your surroundings if your condition allows for this.
