Save to Favorites

VITAS Healthcare of Greater Dayton

  • 4 people are interested

Do you enjoy playing a musical instrument and/or singing? Our patients benefit from hearing a favorite song or hymn bringing them a sense of comfort, peace and happiness. Sometimes, it's the only way patients can communicate and often, patients and families reconnect with feelings and recalling memories.

VITAS
provides training. Volunteers create their own schedule, visiting patients when it's convenient for them.
