About

Music Therapy

Music therapy is a growing service provided in end-of-life care. The primary goal of palliative care is to promote patients' quality of life by alleviating physiological, psychological, social and spiritual distress, and improving comfort.

Needs often treated by music in end-of-life care include the social (e.g. isolation, loneliness, boredom), emotional (e.g. depression, anxiety, anger, fear, frustration), cognitive (e.g. neurological impairments, disorientation, confusion), physical (e.g. pain, shortness of breath) and spiritual (e.g. lack of spiritual connection, need for spiritually-based rituals).

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross recognized the value of music therapy in helping dying patients who are withdrawn become more engaged with others. Primary caregivers of hospice patients who had received complementary therapies, including music therapy, reported that the therapies had improved the patients' quality of life.

We are looking for volunteers interested in enriching the lives of our patients. Our office is located in Westminster, but we service patients all throughout Orange County and surrounding areas.
