Assisted Living Facilities

Harp Therapy is remarkably helpful in this environment.

According to WebMD “Music is a powerful force that evokes strong emotions, brings back heartwarming memories, and provides a way to express yourself. With this type of impact, it’s not surprising that music can be an effective tool for therapy. Older adults can especially benefit from listening to music, as it gives them an outlet for creativity, socialization, and mental stimulation.”

There are several options for Harp Therapy sessions in Assisted Living Facilities:

  • Memory Care Units
  • Independent Living
  • Hospice Care
  • Interactive programs with resident participation

Health Care Facilities

With years of experience working bedside in a hospital environment, I can genuinely say that most patients who are offered this service verbally comment on calming and therapeutic benefits that they received. My experience includes working throughout the hospital with In-Patients including in the ICU/TU, Special Care nursery or Pediatric ICU, Behavioural Health, Pre- and Post-Surgical Units.

Would your organization benefit from having a Certified Therapeutic Harp Practitioner on your team? In the hospital where I worked for seven years, I was required to add my notes from sessions to patients charts. Here are some of the benefits I have witnessed first hand:

  • Gentle heart rate and respiration regulation
  • Perception of pain reduction
  • Anxiety reduction pre- and post- surgery, or waiting for test results
  • Well-being and stress reduction for patients, families and staff
  • Distraction from negative situations especially when treating patients with dementia
  • Aid in ability to sleep

In addition to working one on one at the bedside with patients, here are some other areas where calming, therapeutic harp music has been a particularly well received asset:

  • Soothing music for newborns, particularly those in need of special care
  • Behavioral Health Programs sometimes with Guided Imagery In-Patient and Out-Patient
  • Family waiting areas in times of great distress
