Caring for a loved one in a hospice environment can be challenging. Hospice Care focuses on managing symptoms while at the same time trying to enable patients to continue an alert, pain free life so their last days may be spent with dignity. Compounding offers options for unique drug combinations that can be prepared appropriately in our state of the art lab. Many hospice patients have trouble taking medications and we here at Stokes have the capabilities to provide alternative dosage forms such as, transdermal gels, flavored troches, suppositories and oral suspensions. Common symptoms experienced in end of life care such as pain, nausea/vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, bedsores and anxiety can be treated through compounding. Please contact us here at Stokes and let us know how we can assist you and your family at this difficult time.
