Hospice Care

Caring for a loved one in hospice care can be both challenging and rewarding. Hospice care provides a nurturing and comfortable environment for patients facing terminal illnesses and conditions.

Common symptoms include pain, nausea/vomiting, constipation, dry mouth, bedsores and anxiety. Along with these difficult issues, hospice patients usually experience an inability to swallow. This makes taking necessary medications almost impossible.

Through compounding, pharmacists can work with the physician to formulate medications customized to the unique needs of the hospice patient giving relief to both patient and loved ones.

Hospice patients may benefit from the following compounds:
  • Transdermal Creams/Gels
  • Suppositories
  • Oral Troches (placed between the cheek and gum)
  • Lollipops
