What medical assistance services can MusiCares offer?
The support available to music people in times of need offered by MusiCares can come in many forms.
Along with the hearing protection clinics and Safe Harbor Room support MusiCares provides as part of its annual presences at more than 45 music festivals around the country, the Foundation also has the capacity, by collaborating with other charitable organizations and affiliated partners, to offer discounted medical services and financial assistance grants to qualified music professionals.
Along with general practitioners, medical specialists, dentists, and physical therapists, MusiCares' partner service offerings also include pathways for those seeking mental health treatment.
Here are some thoughts from one recent MusiCares client on the invaluable support network the Foundation provides for the music community:
"This year has been an especially difficult one with the unexpected death of my mother. I want to thank you for being there for me and offering support when I needed it the most. Through your thoughtful grant, I am now receiving grief therapy that I would not have been otherwise able to afford. I'm grateful for your presence in the lives of so many artists and I hope to be able to give back through my music and carry on in some way the healing work you are offering me."
