“Hi Barbara! Thank You for performing at the Beehive! You were awesome! The residents are still raving about you. We are looking forward to your next performance in July! See you then.” Judy H., Forest Grove Beehive
“Barbara Cecil performed after lunch. The participants thoroughly enjoyed her collection of Oldies and Country tunes. Barbara was funny, friendly, and even did a little dance with an eager participant. One user of the center said she was a “10 Plus” with her performance. Highly recommend her if you are looking for a performer to engage older adults.” Matt S., Juanita Pohl Center Supervisor
“Barbara Cecil provided our participants with an amazing performance. Her overall presence was outstanding, and her caring nature really showed. She was able to roll with the punches and keep on performing like a true professional. She definitely has a knack for entertaining. We would be happy to have her back anytime! “ Melissa K., Director of Activities, Mt. Hood Day Center
“I am writing this in regards to Barbara Cecil.Barbara came to entertain the residents at Regency Park Assisted Living and Memory Care on March 22, 2013. I can’t tell you how wonderful she was. I have had lots of performers in my career as an Activity Director, but I can say with certainty, that Barbara is the best I have ever seen. She not only is an incredible singer, but interacts with all of the residents which is so very important in this type of setting. When Barbara called me to see about coming here, I had some reservations as I have hired performers sight unseen and was very sorry afterwards that I did. With Barbara it was a blessing to have her here. Her hourly rate was low in comparison with her talent. I know that all Activity Directors are on a budget, but I raised the amount of payment we would give her. I can only say that if you want a professional entertainer, who interacts with your residents, who is very friendly and caring, then I recommend that you hire Barbara. I have booked her for the whole year and will continue to book her. Sincerely”, Diane W., Activity Director Regency Park Assisted Living & Memory Care
