It’s impossible to talk about Relax with C.A.R.E. without talking about our original and revolutionizing product, The C.A.R.E. Channel.
C.A.R.E. (Continuous Ambient Relaxation Environment) was born out of inspiration in 1992, by our founders, CEO Susan E. Mazer, Ph.D., and Executive VP & C.A.R.E. Channel producer, Dallas Smith. They both had one mission – to be the cornerstone of a healing environment using music and nature over the full 24-hour patient day: to comfort, to bring inside the beauty of nature, and to hold the hands of those enduring a health crisis.
Jazz harpist, Susan, and woodwinds specialist, Dallas, are world-renown musicians who in the 1990s were traveling around the world performing to massive crowds of jazz aficionados. In between performances, they would work with kids (K-12) through the Drug Free Schools Programs and would then work with nurses, teaching the science and practice of creating environments that are therapeutic and healing. During their workshops and beyond, they would perform for patients, their families, their communities, and hospital staff.
During one of their 4-hour residencies on an Oncology unit, they were asked a question that would change their lives forever and start their journey as entrepreneurs and patient advocates. They were asked, with some desperation, “Wonderful for you to be here, but what can I do for my patients at 3 in the morning?” That was the exact moment that C.A.R.E. was born.
Now over 29 years later, C.A.R.E. Programming is being utilized by over 1,000 healthcare facilities around the world. The C.A.R.E. Channel’s stunning natural landscapes paired with original instrumental music (now providing the music of over 40 composer/artists) provides a therapeutic tool for healthcare facilities and now, right to your streaming device.
