Music in a healthcare setting can improve quality of life for patients of all ages by helping:
- Promote wellness
- Manage stress
- Alleviate pain
- Express feelings
- Enhance memory
- Improve communication
- Promote physical rehabilitation.
Research shows music can help decrease anxiety, pain, and heart and respiration rates. Harvard Medical School studies show music may cause cells to release substances that suppress pain and help fight sickness.
During your time at Trios Southridge Hospital, you may hear the soothing sounds of music throughout the halls and public areas as volunteers share the healing gift of music. This is one of many ways we strive to provide total patient care, recognizing that your current physical state is just one aspect of your overall well-being.
