Music Enhancement Volunteer
Einstein Montgomery Home Care and Hospice
Volunteers skilled at playing a musical instrument are welcome additions to our hospice interdisciplinary team. Music can improve the quality of life for our patients by providing a basis for life review and reminiscence, as a distraction from physical pain and discomfort, providing emotional comfort and relief from anxiety as well as providing an enjoyable experience. Visits can be made in the patient's home or a facility in which they live. A 14 hour Training is required for hospice volunteers. It involves a review of the hospice philosophy of care, instructions to better understand the thoughts and feelings of persons facing terminal illness and sessions on active listening and effective communication. Support meetings are held monthly with opportunities for additional training and support.
