Mainstay’s Hospice Services are designed to fit the needs of each patient, caregiver, and agency. Music therapy visits are provided one on one for patients working with specific area hospice companies who elect music therapy visits as a part of their support team. Patient comfort is paramount, which is why our visits take place in the patient’s home or chosen facility. Our focus is on establishing meaningful connections and providing support that aligns with the unique needs presented by each patient. Through the foundation of music, we aim to provide solace, companionship, and a sense of grace during their journey.

Mainstay has a management team devoted to partnering with hospice agencies to provide high quality music therapy services to their patients. Our department is designed to be flexible in providing the level of supports and documentation requested by each partner agency.
