At Village Hospice, music therapy emphasizes life at the end of life. We offer it to all of our hospice patients because it has a remarkable ability to provide comfort and improve quality of life for hospice patients and their families and caregivers.
Music is used both in therapy and as therapy, as a way to help express emotions when words fail. It can bring together the past and present, mend fences and mend hearts, bringing people together and bringing closure.
Because we believe that each person deserves to live each day to the fullest, music therapy is available to every Village Hospice patient within 5 days of admission – without a waiting list – wherever they call home.
NOTE: Because of the restrictions and limitations to protect patients during the COVID-19 pandemic, Music Therapy may not be available to everyone.
Our board-certified music therapists spend time with the patient and family to learn how music is meaningful to them. Then we develop a customized treatment plan tailored to the patient’s needs and wishes, taking extra care to consider cultural backgrounds and spiritual beliefs.
