The Power of Hospice Music Therapy:

Hospice Music Therapy is so much more than just a routine patient visit. Musically talented volunteers have the unique ability to bring transformative joy and comfort to patients during a time where their outlook on life may be at its most grim. Hospice Music Therapy utilizes the universal love for music to bring a sense of joy, familiarity, a soothing atmosphere and calming presence to those on the end-of-life journey.

Benefits of Hospice Music Therapy:

- Aids in coping with terminal diagnosis, anxiety, depression, pain and loneliness
- Provides sensory stimulation
- Specifically benefits patients living with Alzheimer's or Dementia
- Creates a sense of familiarity for patients
