Depending upon each patient’s individual needs and condition, art therapy can be quite beneficial. It can relieve anxiety, provide a calming, meditative activity for patients without certain physical limitations.
The creative act of making art can give patients a sense of pride, provide a way to show their personality, or assist caregivers in understanding a patient’s mood. The types of art used in art therapy include: tempera and watercolor painting, pencil drawing, and clay.
A core value of Compassionate Care Hospice is human connection.
Holistic therapies can be just as, if not more, effective in relieving various forms of pain and discomfort than traditional methods. Arranging these services is as easy as simply asking your hospice team to arrange them for you.
