Music Therapy Offers “Healing” Experience for CICOA Clients
One of CICOA’s goals is to enrich the lives of those it serves. That’s now happening through music therapy. Amy Rohn, a Celtic harpist from Indianapolis, volunteers her time to bring her music into the homes of several CICOA clients each month.
While music therapy at CICOA is in its early stages, it’s already garnering a positive response, said Tara DeBoo, CICOA’s volunteer coordinator. Studies have shown the emotional and health benefits of music therapy. Because so many seniors experience loneliness, DeBoo hopes this new program will help combat that.
