Hospice Compounding


Custom hospice compounds allow for more personalized care when it matters most

Whether a patient is cared for in a hospital, hospice facility, or at home, the goal of hospice is to make a patient’s life as comfortable and painless as possible. Personalized medication that can be quickly adjusted to a terminal patient’s changing symptoms and pain makes it easier to give the best possible care during this difficult time.

Why compounding is ideal

for palliative care

Compounded hospice medications make it uniquely possible to:

  • Administer medications in alternative formulations and dosages that are easier for weak or suffering patients to take, such as topical gels and creams, lozenges, troches, and sprays

  • Increase the strength of medications beyond readily available dosages to care for the severe suffering of terminal patients

  • Manage symptoms around the clock while minimizing the disruptive administration of medication by combining dosages

  • Improve quality of life by helping patients live more comfortably within their pain threshold while potentially minimizing sedation and other adverse side effects

Personalized medications better manage common symptoms treated at the end of life in palliative care settings
