Two years ago a man walked into Fletcher House dressed all in black, with long hair in a ponytail, a hat down low over his eyes and a beaten up guitar, looking like a mixture of Clint Eastwood and Johnny Cash.
His name is Spencer Cox, and he is Fletcher House’s Activities Coordinator. A self-taught guitarist, songwriter and performer, this talented individual has a magical ability to spread love to all the residents and staff, through music. Previously he toured the United States, which took him from Ohio to Nashville, Memphis and Arizona.
Spencer combined his passion for music with his love of care after attending a Rock against Dementia concert in Ohio in 2018. It was here that he discovered the wonderful effect music has on people living with dementia, and it has guided his practice ever since.
