The song, Helping Hand, has been written by 47-year-old resident Susanne Watson from Bathgate and is performed by staff and residents from the home.

The home has just launched its own radio station, Radio Drummond, and it was this project that gave Susanne the idea to write the song so it could be played on the airwaves .

Susanne, who has motor neurone disease, used to write poetry when she was younger. She wrote the touching words for the song and set it to music with the help of the home’s music therapist, Rory Campbell.

Based on Susanne’s own story and her relationship with her five year old daughter, Olivia, the song talks about how life can change in a heartbeat and take a very different path, but how it is ok to ask for help and support.
