Serious illness can be extremely physically and emotionally stressful. Our Thousand Oaks pharmacy team offers palliative care that can help ease the burden. We work closely with health care providers and our patients to provide relief from symptoms, manage side effects from various treatments and help ease pain or discomfort. Our goal for supportive care is to improve your overall quality of life.
Your health care provider may recommend palliative care if you have a serious or life-threatening disease. Palliative care is designed to promote overall wellness and may be used in conjunction with other treatments or procedures that are intended to manage, treat or cure the condition. You may benefit from supportive care treatments that ease the symptoms of your disease, reduce the side effects of other treatments and help you better manage the physical, social and psychological effects of the disease or treatment.
Unlike hospice, which is often recommended to ease end-of-life transitions, palliative care may be started early in the treatment process. Our Thousand Oaks pharmacist is committed to providing you with the treatment you need when you are diagnosed, as you are treated and throughout the follow-up process. Your quality of life is considered at each stage of treatment, and we work with your doctors, nutritionists, social workers and others to ensure the best possible experience for you.
Supportive care may be appropriate for you if you have been diagnosed with cancer, Parkinson’s disease, ALS, COPD, congestive heart failure, kidney failure and other chronic or serious health problems. Our pharmacy team in Thousand Oaks can provide you with treatments that are easy to use while still providing you with the relief that you need. We can compound several medications into a single dosage form to make it easier for you and those who are caring for you. We can provide you with topical ointments, injections, lozenges, lollipops, troches and other dosage forms to ease nausea, soothe pain and control other symptoms or side effects.
