The Role of Music at the End of life
This chapter examines the role of music in end-of-life care, explaining that the use of music, as a therapeutic intervention, has played a significant role throughout time in honoring and assisting the dying process. Research has shown that music affects people physiologically, psychologically, emotionally, and spiritually, and that people respond to music in many more subtle and complex ways than can be proven scientifically. It also outlines the integrative elements in music and the application of music as a spiritual practice.
