Music & Pet Therapy
The Sound of Compassion: Our Hospice's Unique Music & Memory Care Program
At Our Hospice, we’re committed to improving the lives of our patients with personalized, compassionate care. As a certified Music & Memory® Care Organization, we’re proud to bring the transformative power of music into the lives of those we serve.
Music has the unique ability to transport us to different times in our lives, evoking emotions and connecting us to our past. It’s no surprise that extensive research has shown that personalized music can be a powerful tool in helping individuals living with a wide range of cognitive and physical challenges find renewed joy in life.
Personalized Playlists for Unique Stories
Our experienced team of caregivers is trained to develop personalized playlists, delivered through iPods, that can become a key element in the patient’s plan of care. By tapping into the emotional resonance of favorite songs, we can evoke memories, enhance connection, and bring comfort to our patients.

Guided Interactions for Comfort
Our Hospice of South Central Indiana is also proud to offer the support and companionship of trained canine friends through our Pet Therapy program. Pets have a natural ability to bring comfort, joy, and unconditional love into our lives.
A world of difference in the hospice journey
Guided interactions between a trained pet and its owner can help our patients and their families cope with challenging situations, offering a soothing presence that can help alleviate pain, reduce stress, and improve overall psychological well-being.
The bond formed between our patients and these gentle companions creates moments of calm and connection that can make a world of difference in the hospice journey.
