Look forward to your next visit
It is always great to have the Merrymakers come, and we all look forward to it. Your show was just what they needed to pick them up that day, and keep them smiling all week long! Thank you also for taking the time out of your schedule to come, and spend time with our residents. We really appreciate it. We look forward to your next visit.
Who’s been here?
Our residents were talking about this great performance long after it was over. The second shift workers were asking me who had been
here because all their residents were telling them what a good show they had seen this afternoon. Thanks, for all the good work you and Merrymakers are doing to provide us with all the top notch performers!
God Bless you all!!!
There is no way I can thank you enough for the smile that you put on my Moms face. God Bless you all!!! Please keep up the good work.

No nap today
I didn’t want to take a nap today because I was afraid I would miss seeing Michael Lyon.
I have always believed in the healing power of music, but after working at Hospice House and getting the opportunity to work with the Merrymakers performers who come here, I know without a doubt just how powerful music can be. A resident had not been very alert in the morning before Bob and Ardeth’s performance, but as soon as he arrived and heard the old songs he had loved so much in his younger days, he was smiling and tapping his toes to the music. By the end, he was even singing along! What a wonderful thing for him; and what a wonderful thing for his daughter, who was with him for part of the performance, to see!
