Resthaven Murray Bridge resident Tom Hogan is taking on the challenge of learning the guitar for the first time at the ripe age of 89, thanks to lessons from his grandson, Sebastian.

Manager Debbie Lindner said Sebastian has been coming in regularly and is enjoying teaching his grandpa and spending time with him.

“Mr Hogan really enjoys learning to play the guitar, along with the special time spent with his grandson,” she said.

“Look out we may have a new Johnny Cash in our midst.”

Resthaven Murray Bridge was Resthaven’s third residential home, opening in 1958 and celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2018.

Resthaven provides high quality services to more than 1,100 older people and also supports people to live at home.
