Paul brings his musical talents to service users

On Thursday 14th December 2017, a Glasgow Branch Support Worker Paul Woods was supporting at Johnstone Supported Living Service.

After hearing that a few of the people that they support had attended Mamma Mia in Glasgow the previous evening, Paul happened to mention that he had a guitar in the boot of his car and that he also worked as a musical therapist.  Paul was easily persuaded to visit some of the people we support in their flats to have an impromptu singalong. 

Mr. Garrity from Johnstone Supported Living Service said, "Everyone had a fantastic time singing along with Paul. Our heartfelt thanks to Paul for sharing his talent and enthusiasm. The people we support are still talking about Paul’s visit and how much fun they had.  It was an absolutely heartwarming day."

Caroline Armstrong, Business Centre Manager for the Glasgow Branch said, "It was wonderful to witnesses the interaction Paul had with our service users and to see the impact he was having on them. We are really proud to have Paul as part of our Newcross Glasgow team."

Music can have a significant impact on our service, see more information here on how music can change the lives of those needing care.
