    Resthaven Murray Bridge resident learns guitar from grandson

    Guitar lessons hit the high note

    Resthaven Murray Bridge resident, Mr 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, says, ‘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.’

    ‘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.

    The site is currently undergoing a $16.5m redevelopment, due for completion later this year. Find out more here.
