Music is a powerful tool. It can connect people, create relationships, support the dying process and supplement grief and bereavement work. Music therapy at the hospice has resulted in powerful memories and strong supports for those experiencing grief and loss. SarahRose is the founder and coordinator of the first music therapy programs at The Kensington Hospice and the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
"I may play an instrument or sing at a person's bedside; the live music can help relieve anxiety or assist in pain management. At other times, I play music with patients who often find that expressing themselves through music is more accessible than expressing themselves through words. Some patients do legacy work and life review projects using music to highlight meaningful moments in their lives, or songwriting to support creative self-expression, and creation of a living legacy."
Pets are an important part of our lives and members of our families. Your pet is welcome to visit you in your room between 9 am – 9 pm. Dougie the hospice dog is owned by Debbie Emmerson, our Director of Hospice Care, and is on staff every day at the hospice. He is a Havanese puppy, gentle and responsive, affectionate and intelligent. Dougie even has his own book, which helps generate funds for the hospice.
