Day Programs Coordinator Hunter Residencies
NSW Department of Ageing & Disability Home Care (ADHC)
I have come to know Shaunie P through my involvement with people with a disability. Shaun has the ability to relate to all people with a disability regardless of the type and level of disability. Shaun is able to engage all, through his music and singing either in a group or on a one to one basis. His repertoire includes every genre of music and he is often asked for requests which he welcomes. Shaun's performances have resulted in a dedicated group of fans who vie for his attention and who wouldn't dream of missing a session.
Team Leader - Kanangra Day Programs (Morisset Psychiatric Hospital)
Department of Ageing and Disability Home Care (ADHC)
I am writing to start the year off with a "Big" thank you to you for all the ongoing support you give to Day Programs and the people living at Kanangra.
The Music Therapy Program has been a great success over the years with your commitment and vision of what works well and the flexibility to ensure a great day is had by all. Whether it's the Wednesday Music Program or the Friday Karaoke, you have the balance of getting the most out of people even on those hectic days.
You are very talented musically but also you genuinely care about people. Making the time to speak to everyone and listen, even over a cuppa, which is a very important part of the day. Always having a smile on your face, you have a great sense of humour even through the tough times. You know everyone and you have built some great relationships at Kanangra.
This shows with your commitment in supporting Peter with his piano. I can see this has given Peter improved opportunities to enhance something he truly loves.
Let's hope for another great year at Kanangra
