Caring for Our Communities - VNA of Ohio Community Report 2016


14 | VISITING NURSE ASSOCIATION OF OHIO A New Perspective on Hospice Care Music therapy is healing. At the end of life, sometimes it’s one of the only things that brings relief to patients. Loretta is a Visiting Nurse Association of Ohio patient who has Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease or COPD. She says, “With COPD, your chest just feels tight. You get really short of breath.” Loretta had heard on the news about a music therapy program that was using harmonicas with COPD patients. The harmonica is an easy instrument to play and helps exercise patients’ chest muscles. After a half hour of therapy and playing music with her VNA of Ohio music therapist, Katie, Loretta says that she can instantly feel a difference. “I am so excited about this, I can’t tell you,” Loretta said. “I want more people to know about it. And use it. Most therapies for pulmonary people are so boring and torturous. This is fun, it’s really fun.” Click here to view Loretta’s story.
