FAQ–Frequently asked Questions

For staff at senior living facilities (as well as seniors and their families):

  • I have never seen your site before-how long have you operated?
    ElderAudience debuted in September 30, 2008. See Who We Are for how it came about!
  • Is there a charge for my facility to access or use the elderaudience site?
    No. This service is completely free of charge to you and your facility. Spread the word!
  • How much do the performers charge?
    This varies. In fact, some performers volunteer or accept a donation. Also, depending on your specific needs and budget, performers may negotiate with you. All arrangements are between you and the performer. We do not get in the middle.
  • Will you be getting additional performers?
    Absolutely! Check back often!
  • I know some performers who would like to find more work-will you list them?
    Yes! Please tell them about this website or have them e mail info@elderaudience.com
  • Do you screen the performers?
    No. Depending on your tastes and the preferences of your residents, a particular performer will either be a great fit or not so great. This is why we leave it up to you to contact performers directly to learn all you need to know. Also, note that many who are listed have links to their own website or performance clips, which gives you more information about them. PLUS, when activity directors send testimonials for performers to ElderAudience, these are added to that person’s listing. This may help you in your search and selection of entertainment.
  • I have a question, suggestion or concern that is not addressed in your site, how can I contact you?
    We would love to hear from you! Feel free to reach us at info@elderaudience.com.

  • What does it cost to be listed?
    Inquire for details.  All volunteers will be listed for NO CHARGE.
  • Do you take a cut of what facilities pay me?
    No. You work out any fees directly with the staff at the senior care facility or those who are hiring you.
  • An important note from ElderAudience regarding your what you charge: Our economic slowdown is affecting everyone—all of us as individuals as well as facilities serving our seniors.

  • Is there a way for me to showcase my talents to make me “stand out in the crowd”?
