Music therapy is an established healthcare profession that uses music to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship, by a credentialed music therapist. The program is provided by a full-time board-certified music therapist. Through this program, we’ve observed an obvious decrease in pain, anxiety and depression among our residents, with improvements in overall mood.
Music is a powerful element of life – it energizes, soothes, restores, and nurtures. Interactive music therapy sessions not only provide a sense of enjoyment at Malachi House, but also satisfy some of the deeper, more specific needs of our residents. We use music therapy is during all phases of our resident’s life, including the time when death is imminent.
