Specialty Programs for Hospice
There’s more to hospice than pain management.
Quality hospice care should provide everything from pain and symptom management and on-call nursing to programs and services that reduce stress and worry and encourage you and your loved one to spend this time celebrating a life well-lived.
While we incorporate a variety of programs at Brookdale Hospice, two of the most prominent and treasured ones are music therapy and dementia care.
"One of the greatest gifts Brookdale hospice has invested in is a music therapy program. To have them along with us has changed what we can provide. This allows us to provide not only symptom management, but engagement with loved ones."
"With music therapy, we often see a lot of engagement where we might not see it otherwise. Music is stored in so many different parts of the brain, so when one part of the brain begins to atrophy, new neural pathways are created to strengthen their cognitive skills and memory."
