Specialty Programs

One of the distinctive qualities about hospice is its commitment to address the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the patient AND family members. This broad and deep perspective allows us to take our mission of healing in very creative directions. We are proud to offer the following specialty programs to better serve the needs of the Maricopa County community.

Music Therapy

Music soothes the heart and, it turns out, soothes the body as well. Music thanatology is a new and growing field that provides music as a method of pain relief and relaxation.  We are blessed with a Chaplain who has been playing guitar and singing to our patients at each visit. The Chaplain comes to the bedside and plays for the patient and any invited family members. While he certainly takes requests, they also talk to the patient, learn about his or her concerns, and select melodies based on the needs of the moment. This is a free service available to any of our hospice patients. To learn more, give us a call at 602-888-7037.
