Music, Mindfulness, & More
Our staff and volunteers recognize that patients and families in our community are likely to encounter stress and anxiety in their daily lives. Whether you are recovering from surgery, receiving hospice services or serving as a caregiver, we can all benefit from taking a few moments for ourselves each day. We also recognize that we find ourselves living in a unique time where we may be unable to support each other in person or receive companionship and respite from one of our many volunteers.
Our volunteers have donated their time and talents to develop tools for you to use anytime, anywhere. All you need is a reliable internet connection and a quiet space. You can choose from various music tracks recorded by our Certified Music Practitioners (CMPs), listen to volunteers reading short stories, poetry and reflections or take time for some mindfulness or a body scan. Our music therapy program by CMPs is supported by the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
The Sunset Singers are a dedicated group of hospice-trained volunteers who sing for patients and their families. They sing based on a patient's ability to interact. Below is the link to their web site that also features additional comforting music.
