Pet and Music Therapies in Houston, Texas

All of our employees recognize that their own specialty is not the end-all, be-all of home health care. We work tightly as a team, communicating with one another to take advantage of the experience and knowledge of each team member.

We also recognize that some alternative therapies can provide relief that our traditional care might not. Along with our regular services, CASA Healthcare offers pet and music therapy. If you are already one of our patients, we are happy to arrange these additions for you.

Benefits of Complementary Health Care

There is scientific backing for several kinds of complementary medicine, including pet therapy and music therapy. But sometimes, it’s also nice to just feel better, even if you can’t explain why. Some of the benefits observed by both patients and practitioners of animal-assisted therapy include:
  • Pain management (Both tangible and perceived.)
  • Reducing anxiety and depression
  • Increasing feelings of companionship
  • Increasing motivation to complete goals
  • Improving focus for Alzheimer’s and dementia patients
  • Reducing stress on your cardiovascular system (This coordinates nicely with our respiratory therapy services.)

Additionally, benefits of music therapy include:
  • Calming and improving breathing (Again, a helpful component of respiratory therapy.)
  • Encouraging emotional expression and release (Speaking with a chaplain can also help here.)
  • Improving communication (Especially helpful for patients undergoing speech therapy as well.)
  • Improving cognition for those with memory disorders and brain injuries
With all that has been learned about modern medicine, we are confident with many of the therapeutic techniques typically prescribed. We believe in them and rely on them. We also believe--and science supports--that alternative therapy can be a helpful addition for any patient. This is why we offer these methods in conjunction with and without additional cost to our other services.
