How a palliative approach can help older people being cared for at home: A booklet for older people and their families
Nausea is the unpleasant feeling of the need to vomit. Vomiting is ‘throwing up’. Simple things that may ease nausea are:
- eating or drinking smaller amounts, but more frequently
- getting plenty of fresh air and avoiding unpleasant smells
- not lying down straight after eating
- taking prescribed medicines (ie those to reduce nausea)
- learning to relax more fully.
