Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to develop a proposal for a music therapy program to serve hospice clients and their families. The purpose of this project was also to locate a potential funding source in order to make this program possible. The proposed program aspires to alleviate some of the detrimental effects of terminal illness.

The music therapy program would be funded by the Silverado Foundation and would serve clients and their families at Silverado Hospice in San Juan Capistrano, California. The Silverado Foundation was identified as an appropriate funding source, since the goals of the foundation directly correlate with the evidenced-based outcomes of music therapy. These include maximizing the quality of life for those receiving treatment and services.

If this program receives the requested funds, it has the potential to have an important and positive impact on the clients who have received a terminal diagnosis at Silverado Hospice. Of importance also is that this proposed program has the potential to bring relief and solace to those who love and care for them.
