Music therapy is a type of therapy that uses music to address physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of individuals of all ages. Music Therapists can be found in hospices, schools, hospitals, nursing homes, rehab facilities, and correctional institutions.
Music Therapists hold Bachelor’s degrees from accredited colleges and are board certified. They assess and design individualized sessions for addressing patient and family needs. The session may include: singing, improvisation, listening, song writing, lyric discussion, or music performance.
Music Therapy is offered to patients receiving Hospice Care services. Requests may be made to your hospice care nurse or doctor.
