Music Therapy at Hospice of Frederick County

We offer Music Therapy services to our patients and families to enhance physical and emotional comfort through specialized, clinical interventions with a credentialed professional. The Music Therapist can visit one time or on a routine-basis, depending on the needs of the individual and the visits are included in Hospice services at no additional cost to the patient/family.

Pain management, respiratory comfort, procedural support, and self-expression are some of many goals Music Therapy can address. Live music listening, music-making, lyric analysis, songwriting, and verbal processing are examples of therapeutic interventions used by the Music Therapist. Individuals can receive therapeutic benefits both via active participation or passive presence.
