For patients with terminal diseases at the last stages and when the goal is no longer curing them, hospice care is provided. This is a very difficult time for families and friends and that is why compassionate hospice care is important.
Hospice care can involve administering medication to make the patient as comfortable and pain-free as possible. Hospice compounding can help create medication to control, relieve and manage the symptoms of the patient.
Every individual is unique and during this time, traditional medication may no longer an option or cause difficulty for the patient. In such cases, through hospice compounding, we can prepare medications in different forms such as but not limited to:
- Topical medication
- Rapid dissolve tablets
- Oral liquids
