Complementary Therapies

In addition to our Hospice Services and Transitions Program and thanks to community support, we are able to offer additional therapies that focus on the entire person.

Music Therapy

You do not need a musical background to receive benefits of music therapy. Our board-certified music therapists are trained, on-staff clinicians who will use your preferred type and style of music as a medium for goal-centered care.

Live music is used to reach therapeutic goals such as:

  • Pain management
  • Self-expression
  • Positive stimulation for patients who are not able to interact
  • Reduced agitation
  • Increased comfort related to respiratory symptoms
  • Increase quality of life

To learn more about our music therapy program, please contact Susan Droessler at sddroessler@bigbendhospice.org.

Animal Therapy

We are proud to partner with Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare Animal Therapy program to bring wagging tails to soothe hearts. These four-legged friends (and birds) are available to visit patients and families in the Margaret Z. Dozier House and designated Assisted Living Facilities.

All pets and their owners are vetted and trained. If you would like to learn more about TMH’s Animal Therapy program, please visit https://www.tmh.org/services/animal-therapy
