My MIL readily agreed to a vestibular therapy program when the nurse suggested it, whereas she adamantly refused to go when I talked with her about it and made me cancel 2 appts at her insistence. The nurse also mentioned that her BP was “a little low” and discussed her preferences for resuscitation as a matter of routine. My MIL said she would not want to be resuscitated and signed the DNR form which the nurse said should be placed in a visible location, in case paramedics were called to the home, after the visit, MIL thought she was dying. No obvious symptoms other than lightheadedness and obvious anxiety. Said her BP was so low she was sure she was dying, she just felt it. I checked her BP and it was actually high. I know this may be a “normal” response to the nurse’s line of questioning, but man it took a toll on me! When she finally went to bed I felt so wiped out. The day in and day out caring for someone nearing the end of life can be so exhausting. I just needed to vent.
