Victoria Storm on the transformative nature of Music Therapy in End of Life Care

We tend to take for granted the restorative and motivating power of music in our lives. In this episode, Victoria Storm offers personal and professional experiences to show how music therapy can be transformative in daily life and hospice care.

Storm has a unique background that includes 25+ years of bringing music to persons in need through her work in a community music school, special education classrooms, physical and mental health hospitals, hospice and elder care facilities.  Her Master of Music and Bachelor of Music degrees in Music Therapy are from Western Michigan University.  She is a regular speaker on the topic of music therapy in university classrooms, regional, and national conferences.

Hospice Chaplaincy is a nonprofit organization committed to promoting excellence in spiritual care at the end of life. We are committed to the belief that people from all backgrounds, cultures and faith traditions should experience the end of life in a way that matches their own spiritual/religious values and goals. The task of dying is complicated and often confronts us with lots of spiritual, emotional and physical suffering. Hospice Chaplaincy is dedicated to providing support and professional development resources for hospice chaplains, patient advocacy, and education services to the public, to create a cultural shift to inform and transform our thinking around the psychosocial and psychospiritual issues at the end of life .
