One of the participants at Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church last night asked if my music also reached others besides designated patients.
Yes, the music flows out into the hallways and I often have family members poke their heads into the room where I am offering music and ask if I can come to play/sing for their loved one. Of course, I try to do that.
Wheelchairs regularly congregate outside the room of a patient receiving music. I see them out of the corner of my eye.
Staff often remark how much they need the music, too, how it calms them. And I notice that the housekeepers hang around longer tidying rooms, mopping floors when there is music present.
