Over the weekend our residents had the pleasure from a performance from SilverStone Hospice volunteer. Thank you so much
Can’t wait for you to comeback again. 🎶🎵
I am Robert “Bobby” Berger; I am a Certified Music Practitioner; certified to perform therapeutic music to patients at the bedside. I can also perform for other venues using my skills to heal. I have performed live therapeutic music sessions in various venues such as; hospital, skilled nursing facility, day habilitation, retirement home, and online. I have an expansive selection to perform to meet the needs. Therapeutic music a valued medium reaching people in crisis. Live therapeutic music is non-invasive and can heal without the danger of invasive medicine. Live Therapeutic Music gives the patient in the moment experience that is lacking confined to a bed or wheelchair for example. Live therapeutic Music is tailored to the needs of the patient either their moods or level of pain.
At this time with concerns of COVID-19 I am able to perform Virtual Live Therapeutic Music through the internet either with iPads or other computer equipment.
Working as a CMP, there are many attributes I love being involved with. There are many skills acquired throughout my years that apply. I enjoy sharing my love of music. I get satisfaction reaching others and the results helping them get through their struggles communicating through my music.
Stories of my experience:
I was in the hospital going to my next patient; in the elevator, a man commented it was nice I was performing for people. I asked him if he wanted me to perform for who he was visiting where he commented his wife is in a coma. I said I would be happy to play for her and can be therapeutic. We went to her room and his daughters were there. He asked me if I knew the song 500 Miles; I told him I don’t remember all the words and I didn’t have it on file; we all sang with such beautiful harmony. His wife although in a coma, displayed very positive readings on the monitor showing of many things her blood pressure went way down. The next time I visited, he said before I originally came, they were approached by the nurses and the doctor to consider removing life support. Following my original visit, the decided to keep her on life support.
Finishing the day on Neuro ICU and closing out at the nurses station, one nurse told me a patient’s daughter was really stressing out and was having difficulty accepting the staff couldn’t do enough. The daughter saw me across the hall and asked if I could play for her mother; I accepted happily.
I played appropriate music for the patient which was also pleasant for her daughter. Following a few songs and instrumentals, her daughter asked me if I knew and Jewish songs. I replied I did and played some standards. She was so elated and relaxed; her mother (actually the patient) relaxed also.

🧠

With hospice, you may live longer.

Patients usually feel better when their pain and symptoms of illness are better controlled. Studies show that with careful management and treatment of symptoms, and specialized care for emotional and physical well-being, hospice care often results in extending patients life for an average of 29 days!

Did you know……..

According to studies, more than 20% of Americans and at least 10% of the world population suffer from chronic pain?

September is - a time when pain specialists and advocates promote pain education and raise awareness about issues related to chronic pain.

Chronic Pain can be defined as pain that persists most days or every day for 6 months or more. This type of pain can continue even after the injury or illness that originally caused it has healed or gone away. For some individuals, pain can last a lifetime.

Some symptoms of chronic pain syndrome include:
- Joint pain
- Muscle aches
- Burning pain
- Fatigue
- Sleep issues
- Loss of stamina & flexibility (due to decreased activity)
- Mood problems (including depression, anxiety, and irritability)

Chronic pain can take many forms:
- Mild to severe
- Intermittent to continuous
- Annoying to disabling

If you resonate with any of these symptoms we encourage you to talk to your primary care physician about treatment options for managing chronic pain. Don’t suffer in silence!

Let’s celebrate National Eye Exam Month!

Eye exams can be the key to detecting and diagnosing eye diseases that with early detection, can prevent permanent vision loss. Many vision-threatening conditions may be asymptomatic at first and only detected during a complete eye exam, such as:

- Cataracts
- Glaucoma
- Macular Degeneration
- and Diabetic Retinopathy

Did you know that other serious medical conditions can be detected from an eye exam too? Not only are eye exams important to maintain healthy vision, but because our eyes are a window to our overall health, a simple check up can also help identify other serious health conditions such as:

- Diabetes
- Cancer
- Migraines
- High Cholesterol
- Hypertension
- Medication toxicity
...and over 100 more...

Regular eye exams can have a massive impact on the quality of your vision and overall eye health, but they can also help detect other serious medical conditions too. The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends regular eye exams every 1-2 years beginning at age 40. Have you gotten your annual eye exam yet? 👀

Happy National Relaxation Day!

Today we hope that you can take time to slow down and unwind. Finding ways to relax and reduce stress will improve overall your health. It’s been proven that stress can be harmful to our health, both mentally and physically. Taking time to recuperate our tired minds and bodies may help prevent health risks too.

I was riding along with the SilverStone Hospice chaplain Franklin Reagan, MDiv. when I witnessed a connection that I will never forget. We walked into the house of a beautiful young woman with big green eyes and hot pink hair; she was 34 years young. She was a loving mother with a young son. She was paralyzed and had trouble speaking, but we held her hand and prayed alongside her. As we finished praying, she started hollering, and I thought she was in pain. She couldn’t calm down and kept saying, “I don't want to.” The chaplain Franklin went over to her and held her hand. Sensing this connection, she calmed down and fell over almost limp. To me, it felt like she was reaching out to her father and felt a sense of calm once our chaplain held her hand in support. It is moments like this that reinforce the value and the beauty of the work we do.
