Jay Craven Music @ CHI Memorial
Named for long-time CHI Memorial Volunteer and well-known clairinetist, the Jay Craven Music @ Memorial Program is an important element in the creation of an environment conducive to healing. Music can relax the body, mind, and spirit allowing more effective responses to treatment for many patients, including the critically and chronically ill. Jay Craven Music @ Memorial is a service offered by a variety of volunteer musicians who play at the bedside and in the common areas of the hospitals. At CHI Memorial, musicians provide a therapy service. They are trained to be responsive and unobtrusive while providing beneficial music to individual patients or to visitors and staff in halls and waiting areas.
