Sound Therapy for Homebound and Patient Care

By Theresa V. Wilson, M.Ed

(Page 2 of 2)

How Can You Provide Sound Therapy Balance?

It is important to monitor and adjust the room’s atmosphere.  This can be accomplished using such instruments as soothing sound machines and relaxing music. Avoid overuse of television or radio as the noise; information and tones can negatively affect the atmosphere of the room.  Their content may also include abrupt loud noises and sounds from commercials or other programs that can negatively affect body functions and create mental discord.

Family members and caregivers who are directly involved in patient care can take an active role as and be a positive source of harmony and comfort by dealing with negative sounds, which are one of the major causes of patient distress during a traumatic time. Being proactive in this process will also help family members feel a part of a wellness process by actively participating in the care of their loved one.

Controlling environmental sound is important for peace, comfort, and harmony for   caregivers, patient, and the homebound family member. Sound therapy is a way of balancing sound waves and frequencies in the environment outside the body with the internal waves and frequencies of the human body.  Sound therapy makes a difference in the quality of life.
