FMLA when paid leave is exhausted

My wife has been approved for intermittent FMLA to care for her mother who suffers from dementia and is recovering from a broken hip. The employers policy is to require paid leave to be used first for such absences. Consequently, little or no paid leave is available when needed for vaction, normal sick or doctor visits, or other non-FMLA leave. This seems detrimental to the caregivers health - can the "approved FMLA leave" allow the employee to request unpaid leave to substitute for occasional but needed non-FMLA purposes?
