As the elderly population continues to grow, the need for compassionate hospice care has become more and more relevant. At the heart of hospice care is the belief that each person has the right to die pain free and with dignity. Common symptoms experienced during end-of-life care include pain, nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, bedsores and anxiety. All of which are often best dealt with through compounding.
In hospice care, it remains vitally important to relieve as much pain as possible without causing sedation and adverse side affects. Since patients vary in size and tolerance, commercially available medications often do not provide an appropriate strength. A physician and pharmacist can design a medication to the exact dosage needed by the patient.
You should ask your physician or pharmacist about compounded medications for hospice care. Compounding is especially suited to the idea of providing personalized and individual care to a dying patient. Every individual is unique and different, and experiences during the end-of-life can vary from individual to individual. Through compounding, the relief of pain can be customized to your specific needs.
