Sometimes, a patient's last wish is to listen to a particular piece of music.
Music therapy in end‐of‐life care aims to improve a person's quality of life by helping relieve symptoms, addressing psychological needs, offering support and comfort, facilitating communication, and meeting spiritual needs.
Music activates the limbic system which is composed of several interlinking parts that lay deep inside the brain. Memory-Related research notes that this part of the brain reacts emotionally to music, giving the listener chills, joy, sadness, excitement, pleasure and other feelings.
Our Volunteers will meet with you and your caregivers through a Zoom conference call, a phone call, or a visit to your home. We will help to determine which music will be best based on your preferences.
At Boquete Health & Hospice we have a music lending library and also some equipment that we can lend to our patients. Our volunteers will work with the patient or the caregivers to determine which music might be helpful.
