Tidewell to Present Facebook Live Music Therapy Session Today

Coconut Telegraph

SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY MAR 20, 2020

Along with the fear and uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, social isolation has been identified as a growing threat to the well-being of patients, families and loved ones in the communities Tidewell Hospice serves. Visitation restrictions at the area’s long-term care and assisted-living facilities have separated many seniors from the people closest to them. Tidewell is finding ways to help both patients, their loved ones and community members make the best of the new normal until the outbreak subsides. The first of these efforts offers relief from the stress of the outbreak and promises a sense of community. Tidewell Music Therapist Michael Russo will present a Facebook Live music therapy session at 1:30 p.m. EDT today, Friday. Just visit the Tidewell Facebook page to interact, request meaningful songs and experience one of the complementary services Tidewell is proud to offer patients and their loved ones. Viewers are encouraged to engage with patients in long-term care and assisted-living facilities, family members and friends. Everyone is invited. Russo and several committed volunteer musicians make regular visits to Tidewell hospice houses and other facilities as requested. Volunteers and staff are trained in the use of music for relaxation and reminiscence.
