How will the proceeds from this music therapy event help Gilchrist’s program?

Music therapy does not receive direct reimbursement for services provided, the program relies solely on generous donations received through special grants and private gifts. As one family member shared, “I couldn’t imagine hospice without music therapy.” All the proceeds from tonight’s event will help to continue funding the necessary work of our music therapy team, in providing comfort, support and joy to our patients and families, through music.

What is music therapy?

Individuals with life-limiting illnesses can often benefit from creative art therapies designed to ease discomfort, improve communication and provide an outlet for expression. Music therapy, combined with the medical attention and interventions of the hospice team, can help improve quality of life by relieving symptoms and addressing needs related to the end of life.
