Music therapy

Mary Potter Hospice’s Music Therapist shares music with patients and their families or whānau in the Inpatient Unit.

KerynFor many patients, the time spent with the Hospice’s Music Therapist is based on songs that are favourites or have personal meaning. For some people the session results in the compilation of a CD or playlist of favourite or significant music for them to listen to whenever they need it.

Sometimes our Music Therapist may help patients write a song. This could be for a special family occasion, such as weddings. It could be a gift to a loved one, saying the things the patient wants them to know and remember.
