Music Therapist Jessie Powers Leads Piano Singers at Kensington Park Senior Living

Music Therapy In End Of Life Care

One year after introducing our Solace & Support: Music for Comfort Care music therapy program here at Kensington Park, the positive effects of music in end-of-life care were highlighted in the New York Times. In an article entitled, “Music Therapy Offers an End-Of-Life Grace Note,” residents and professionals alike sing its praises. As board-certified music therapist, Kristen O’Grady, eloquently says:

“When we talk about end-of-life work, we are talking about loss…but music is an inherently creative process. So we are directly opposing this feeling of loss with a feeling of creation. We are having creative, new experiences even in the last moments of someone’s life.”

The entire staff at Kensington Park are committed to surrounding and supporting our residents for all of their days. But if you are searching for additional ways to support loved ones in their final moments, we are here for you. Contact campus music therapist Jessie Power, at jpower@kensingtonsl.com, with any further questions.
