Hospice/Palliative Care

For Hospice patients, the right medication can make a tremendous difference, improving both the quality of life and therapeutic care. 
 
In many cases, off-the-shelf products are simply inadequate to control pain, comfort and manage to all symptoms. Even when effective, standardized drugs often result in troubling side effects, or dosages that can severely affect awareness and comfort during a patient’s end of life treatment.
In contrast, Goldsmith Pharmacy provides customized medication to address the individual needs of each patient. We tailor dosages and combine medications to achieve the physician’s treatment goals while offering maximum comfort and minimal distress for the patient and the family.
 
Here are just a few of the ways we can help:

  • More effective formulas to reduce pain, ease nausea, soothe burns, stimulate saliva, increase appetite, and balance daytime alertness and nighttime comfort
  • More comfortable or viable delivery methods, including topical creams, oral solutions, nasal sprays, mouth rinses, capsules, lozenges, and even popsicles
  • More appealing and efficient formulas, including enhanced flavor, color, and scent, and combinations of multiple medications in a single dose
  • Personal consultation with experienced compounding pharmacists to help physicians determine the best solution for each patient, even in the most difficult scenarios
