Hospice Savannah's 6th Annual Lecture Series: Music and the Brain
Ever watched those amazing and touching videos of non-verbal nursing home residents suddenly "lighting up" and singing along to songs from their childhood or adolescent years? Then you may have some inkling of the important role music therapy can play in the quality of a patient's life. 

Come hear world-renowned neuroscientist Dr. Petr Janata speak on Friday, January 24 at a free luncheon lecture entitled "Nurturing the Sense of Meaning in Life through Music-Evoked Remembering". We are proud of our innovation and commitment to excellent patient care through being the only organization in the area to employ a full-time certified music therapist.

Read more about the work of Neurological Music Therapist, Amy Adams, MM, MT-BC (pictured left) here and pre-register for the lunch and lecture via our website here or call 912.629.1045.
Take a Cruise at Hospice House!

Can't afford a winter cruise? Get in the spirit of one by viewing the artwork in our Hospice Savannah Art Gallery! Artist Victoria Collett has filled the hallways with tropical images and looks forward to meeting you at her reception on Thursday, January 30th between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m.

Victoria moved from Australia to the U.S. via Europe in the mid-seventies and worked in  New York as an operating room nurse. She moved to Savannah in 2008. When not at her day job in scrubs at Memorial, she is immersed in the fine arts and has extensive training in watercolor, oil painting and print making. She is also a published short story writer and holds a Masters of Arts in Writing degree from Manhattanville College in New York.
Saying farewell to a Special Volunteer

Recently we said goodbye to Jean Beltramini, a former board member and gracious, compassionate volunteer of over 15 years who has finally retired and moved to be with her "other" family in New Jersey. 

If you are interested in joining our volunteer family we welcome you to apply or find out more here.
. . . And to a Special Patient!
We love it when a patient feels better under our care and can "graduate" from our program. Mrs. Cooley graduated recently but, as always, we will be here if she needs help with symptom management in the future.  To find out more about how we can help you or your loved one please call our Referral Center at 912.355.2289.
