North Austin Music Therapy creates solutions to continue serving clients and the community throughout the greater Austin area during the coronavirus
AUSTIN, Texas - March 26, 2020 - PRLog -- Due to growing concerns in regards to the coronavirus, North Austin Music Therapy is presenting clients and the community with alternative ways of receiving music therapy and music wellness services. In addition to offering telehealth sessions to both individual and group clients, North Austin Music Therapy is also bringing live music and movement groups to residents of retirement and long-term care communities, leading sessions from outside of buildings, to engage residents in singing, dancing, and music-making while maintaining a safe social distance and respecting community shelter-in-place directives. Outdoor groups started this week and have proven to be a huge success, with residents eager to participate and engage with peers, staff, and with therapists from North Austin Music Therapy.
Founder and Clinical Director, Meredith Hamons, MT-BC, is operating from the mantra, "Social distancing should never mean social isolation," and is passionate about her company's mission to expand possibilities through music therapy. She is so excited to be able to continue bringing the power of music to older adults and those of all ages during this time.
North Austin Music Therapy is in awe of the staff at retirement communities and long-term care centers who are continually going above and beyond to be sure residents are safe, healthy, cared for, and socially engaged, even with added protections in place, and is thrilled to be able to contribute to maintaining the health and happiness of older adults in this area.
Early next week, North Austin Music Therapy will begin offering individual online music enrichment sessions specifically for children as well.
Those interested in exploring creative music therapy and music wellness options can contact North Austin Music Therapy through their website at www.NorthAustinMusicTherapy.com.
