There could be a number of potential causes here. One is that she is not actually physically ill, but believes she is, which makes it real. Another is that, due to her vascular impairment and probably her gait/spatial/depth perception being off, it could cause her to be dizzy and therefore nauseous. So in short, vascular impairment could affect someone by making them feel sick. I haven’t heard of this specific issue, but with the brain, anything is possible. The third option is that it’s her medication. And really the fourth is that it’s a combo of all these things. Chat with the doc about the meds she’s on and their side effects.
Rachael’s program is excellent! We are now better prepared to give our residents the care and understanding they need and to support our resident families with confidence. She also helped us with our engagement activities and daily activity calendars. We are now Dementia By Day Certified!
