Music and Memory Program

Music and Memory

Barnabas Health Hospice patients find renewed joy and pleasure in rediscovering the music that matters to them through Music & Memory - a 501c3 non-profit organization that helps provide patients with iPods loaded with music playlists personalized just for them.

Music and Memory

Barnabas Health Hospice, which is sharing in a grant provided to Music & Memory from the Healthcare Foundation of New Jersey, is the first hospice agency in New Jersey to participate in the program and to receive a "start-up kit" of iPod Shuffles, headphones, small tabletop speakers and gift cards to purchase music that is used to create playlists for patients.

The program is fully funded through the generosity of donors. For information about how you can support the program, call 973-370-8134 or email megan.knight@barnabashealthHCH.org.
