Music-Thanatology is a palliative care service offered to bring physical, emotional, and spiritual comfort to patients and their families during a time of serious illness or at the end of life. Trained clinicians respond to a patient’s changing condition with a unique prescriptive delivery of music using harp and voice. Because the music is individualized, it often brings reduction of pain, reduced anxiety, respiratory relief and deep relaxation.
Music-Thanatology services can be requested by a patient, a family member or any health care team member. There is no fee for this service.
For more information on this service, please contact the Music-Thanatology Office in the Providence Center for Faith and Healing, at 509-474-5122.
