From Kim Johnson, Director of Arts Access –
Passionate about music? Want to help improve the lives of nursing home residents?
The Tennessee Person-Centered Music Program is looking for volunteers to create music playlists for nursing home residents.
The Tennessee Person-Centered Music Program offers residents at participating Tennessee nursing homes individualized music as part of their care. The program is funded by a Civil Monetary Penalty Grant from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services through the Health Facilities Commission from February 1, 2019 to June 30, 2023. The $1M award will fund 147 nursing homes throughout Tennessee.
How do I become a volunteer?
This role is currently being offered virtually so volunteers will not need to travel and can perform the tasks needed from their homes. The first step in becoming a Tennessee Person-Centered Music Program Music Manager is to complete the Tennessee Person-Centered Music Program Music Manager application. We also strongly encourage you review the Tennessee Person-Centered Music Program volunteer role description to learn the essential duties and responsibilities and time commitment of this role.
