Room 217: Care Through Music

Music is increasingly being used and accepted in healthcare to intentionally improve wellness.  However, there is a lack of standardization as to how music may be integrated into personal care goals and the physical care setting to produce the best quality of care. As a result, the benefits of using music to enhance well-being and quality of life may be underdeveloped.

The Room 217 Foundation is working to see music used as an agent of care for vulnerable populations that can be delivered by all care providers regardless of their musical abilities or training.  To this purpose, the Room 217 Foundation develops research-informed music resources and programs that anybody can use, provides education on how to integrate music into care and supports innovative research into music and care.
