Music brings us a sense of comfort, completion, and wholeness. It supports, it connects, it stimulates, it relaxes, it encourages, it expresses, it consoles. Music can provide a powerful voice and validation to the thoughts and feelings that often arise when facing a life limiting illness. At Trustbridge, Board Certified Music Therapists utilize music to meet the unique needs of our patients and their families. The music therapist forms a therapeutic bond with the patient and family and offers support from the time of admission through the last moments of life.
Music therapy is a recognized health profession that is proven to relieve physical symptoms, enhance mood, stimulate memory recall, and provide unique opportunities for interaction and emotional intimacy for families in hospice care.
