The Front Porch is deeply honored to launch a partnership with Hospice of the Piedmont. Since the beginning of this year, we’ve been sending musicians to play for Hospice patients, their family members, and caregivers at The Linden House Assisted Living and The Blake. Our goal is that music will provide warmth, peace, and connection during end of life care.
Music is powerful, especially in the way it impacts our brain. We know that music can have a transformative impact on our mood, emotions, and memory. It becomes even more powerful if brain function is declining. Music can awaken parts of the brain and the rich trove of memories that are associated with familiar songs or beloved pieces. It will anchor and ground someone with dementia or Alzheimer’s. And it can provide comfort and peace to those nearing the end of their lives. Read more about power of music in our blog post.
We hope to unlock this power for our friends at Hospice.
