Enhancing rehabilitation with optimistic, inspiring interactions
Regaining health or accepting a new status quo requires a combination of medical expertise and positive experiences. We offer unique solutions to healthcare organizations, hospitals and hospice providers to increase market recognition and ultimately help fill beds.
Although it has been recognized by many healthcare organizations for years, recent research has confirmed that music is a vital part of wellness and healthy development. Although, hospitalization can often be accompanied by fear, isolation and stress for the patient and the patient’s family members, many hospitals have included music therapy as a popular service that reinforces the mental, physical and emotional well-being of the patient.
Involving a music therapist on your team of physicians, nurses, child life specialists, and other staff can create a positive, stress-reducing therapeutic service to help patients recover more quickly and decrease length of hospital stay. Music therapy services can also increase reports of patient satisfaction. For terminally ill patients, music therapy can be used in palliative and hospice care to help relieve pain and reduce stress and anxiety for the patient and to cope with feelings of fear, anxiety, loss of control and loneliness.
The benefits of including music therapy in your hospital or rehabilitation program include, but are not limited to:
- Increased patient satisfaction
- Stress reduction
- Decreased reports of pain and discomfort
- Decreased staff needs for procedural support
- Increase of coping skills for patients
- Decreased costs
- Increased family involvement
- Focus on continued developmental growth throughout hospitalization
- Increased opportunities to participate in decision making and treatment
- Increased staff satisfaction
Whether you choose to offer music therapy in one unit or throughout your facility, music therapy can provide a personalized level of support and care that translates into many positive results for your staff, your patients, and their families.
