Maximize the Moment
Using music, dance, and art, our expressive art therapists provide psycho-social support to seniors experiencing a wide range of issues, including adjustment to aging, health status changes, depression, and anxiety. Expressive art therapies are also proven highly effective for those living with memory loss.
If you are homebound due to a chronic illness or recent hospitalization, and within our in-home care service area or in a Hebrew SeniorLife senior living community, expressive therapies can be brought to you as part of palliative care through our home health service.
Great Days for Seniors, our adult day health program, includes a weekly visit from a music therapist at both of our locations on the Hebrew Rehabilitation Center Campus in the Roslindale neighborhood of Boston and at 2Life Communities in the Brighton neighborhood of Boston.
We are committed to helping residents make the most of the cognitive abilities they have at all times. One way we do this is through music, dance, art, and poetry, which provide channels for self-expression with proven therapeutic benefits.
Our expressive art therapies provide a safe, secure setting where patients can express themselves on both verbal and nonverbal levels. Increased connection to others and the environment decreases a patient’s level of distress and psychological discomfort when adjusting to long-term chronic care.
Music therapy is among the complementary services integrated with our whole-patient approach to hospice care.
