Thanks everyone for your kindness and generous donations. I now have enough guitars to share with my clients. Much appreciated. Merry Christmas. 🎄
Hi. I’m a music therapist. I’m on the lookout for an old acoustic guitar. It’s ok if it has a broken neck but would be good if the main body was in one piece. I’m happy to consider anything.
Please pm me, phone or text 021 644618. Free would be great but happy to negotiate price.
Many thanks in advanced.

Community is at the heart of everything Oceania does, and sunny Nelson’s Green Gables is no different. Oceania resident, Marie, loves being part of the community, saying “This is the place I’ve been able to make friends.”
Reflecting on when she first moved to her Oceania Care Suite, Marie says, “The Guest Services Manager got to know me in the first week. We had dinner.” Adding with a smile, “The chef here is absolutely marvellous.”
But Marie’s social life isn’t limited to delicious dinner dates, as there’s always something happening. “The Guest Services Manager gets to know the residents and what they want to do. Everyone is different and has different needs. They’ll arrange things for what we want to do.”
When it comes to her spacious Care Suite, Marie couldn’t be happier. “I love my room. I have a little outside patio area. I can boil the jug and make myself a cup of tea. I can entertain friends here. I have miles of photos up, I like having lots of photos around me.”
At Oceania, Marie has found that feeling many of us are searching for, “I wake up every morning and feel good.”
