"So many of our clients do not have interactions with others. Many live alone or are avoided by the general populace. Having you here today, taking the time to interact with them personally, will be a highlight that they will remember for years to come. Entertainment is often a privilege only afforded by the few. Today our folks had high quality entertainment that they enjoyed and will not forget. Thank you for making their day!" - Janie Woodall Smith, Executive Director, Jackson House, Hot Springs, AR
"My mom called to tell me all about your performance today. She sure did enjoy it, and it put her in a good mood! She told me about learning to speak Italian, and they got to sing so many songs! 'Everyone sang!' she said, not just her!" - Michelle Watts, daughter of Eva Yates, resident at Country Club Village, Hot Springs, AR
"The Entertainment Foundation entertainer stayed talking with the audience members for nearly 45 minutes after the show ended!" - Debbie, TEF volunteer
"I’m trying to hold it together. Sitting and hearing the residents sing along is a blessing. One lady is 95 and legally blind due to a stroke. Another just found out she has cancer but continues to encourage other residents to join. As the song “Always” was introduced, one shares with the crowd that this was sung at her wedding. My heart is just exploding!" - Stephanie, an observer at a visitation show
"The Entertainment Foundation is such a blessing! We at the Caring Place are so thankful that it exists for our deserving participants, senior adults who share their day with us in order to give respite to caregivers and their families of people with dementia. With our funding being cut recently, The Entertainment Foundation can now assist us in providing quality entertainment for these deserving people. To see them laughing, singing, dancing and enjoying the music is heartwarming. It provides such a wonderful opportunity for our residents and provides a better quality of life for them." – Director of Activities, The Caring Place, Hot Springs, AR
"I've seen dozens of TEF performances at various senior facilities and although the performer is excellent, professional, and an audience pleaser, I mostly enjoy watching the sweet residents as glimmers of joy fill their expressions. Their eyes twinkle with memories and their smiles reflect the happy reminiscing flowing through their hearts. Watching them is the best part of the show. It's evident that their lives are enhanced with the beauty of music." - Debbie, TEF volunteer
