“A huge thanks for your superb entertainment programme, absolutely superb with so much interaction.  A breath of fresh air…appreciated so much for making residents interact, sing and most of all smile!”

– Liz Rennocks, Activities Co-ordinator, Waterside Grange Care Home, Dinnington

“The Eldertainers had a wonderful attitude to our residents, empathic and dignified. Showing great care, individual attention and interaction with each resident. They didn’t seem phased at all by the activity going on around them. Very refreshing, I hope we can invite them back.”

– Janet Bell, Co-owner, Spring Mount Care Home, Bradford

“Thank you so much for your performance at WING yesterday!  It was much enjoyed by all the members, and we hope you will return to us soon. I’m even going to recommend you to the local group for dementia sufferers and their carers.”

– Liz Thornton-Smith, secretary of Wickersley Neighbourhood Group, Rotherham

“We were afraid that your show would be geared solely to care homes, but we’re so glad that we took you.”

– Sue Foxton, chairperson of Wickersley Neighbourhood Group, Rotherham

– Freda Ashworth, resident at Lancaster Grange Care Home, Newark

– Gill, Activities Coordinator, Valley View Care Home, Lepton

“Engaging, colourful, original, entertaining. The show was just so so refreshing. More!”

– Jane, daughter of Colin at Valley View Care Home, Lepton

“Thank you for coming. It’s been really really lovely. So varied and colourful with all the dancing and singing. You’re the best act we’ve ever had.”

– Sheila, resident at Hartsholme House, Lincoln

“The show reminded me of the saying “music speaks, where words fail” and you do it in such an original way. Thank you so much.”

– Linda, daughter of Gordon, Holmwood Care Home, Sheffield

“What you are doing for the elderly folk is just tremendous. And it is so clear that it comes directly from the heart. Thank you both so much for your fabulous show this afternoon. Lesley and I enjoyed it tremendously, as did mum and clearly all the other residents.”

– Gavin Whitwell, son of resident at Foxton Grange Care Home, Leicester

“You really are the best we have had. Loved the singing and the dancing and the puppets. I also loved the way you interacted with everyone. I often find that entertainers tend to miss the ‘challenging’ residents. They all were engaged. My husband Glyn has late stage Alzheimers and is not usually engaged with entertainment, normally falling asleep at the start, but he was ‘with you’ for a good 30 mins. Amazing! Today I saw him watching the dancing and he even moved his hands to the music, and was smiling! I can’t tell you how much that meant to me and obviously to him! I so hope you continue as you really are what ‘dementia’ sufferers need.”

– Sue Jones, wife of resident at Foxton Grange Care Home, Leicester

“The Eldertainers! What an amazing show. You captivated our residents for the entire time. They think your show is ‘great’ and have already asked me to book you again. Relatives have said that you are the ‘kind of show that we need’. Thank you.”

– Paula, Activities Coordinator, Foxton Grange Care Home, Leicester

“Thanks so much. I really have enjoyed what you’ve given to us all.”

– Jim, Resident, Davies Court Care Home, Dinnington

“It was SO different!! We loved the dancing puppets. And what a change to see a couple dancing too. Keep up the good work.”

– Joan, sister of resident at Holmwood Care Home, Sheffield

“Especially nice was that you went around all the people and involved individuals in the show.”

– Deborah, Activities Coordinator, Holmwood Care Home, Sheffield

“It was excellent! Dementia-friendly and plenty of music, some upbeat, some romantic, but the residents seemed to know them all.”

– Sue Buckton, friend of resident at Holmwood Care Home, Sheffield

“Thank you so so much for the entertainment. It’s been fabulous. I can’t get over it.”

– Betty, resident at Tennyson Wharf Care Home, Lincoln

“Many thanks for your recent performance. The costume changes brought colour and vibrancy to the performance. Some of the dementia clients particularly engaged with the puppets, which is something new we have not had here before. All in all there was something for all and you could tell by the applause and smiling faces how much they all loved it (relatives and staff included) and the clients particularly liked seeing themselves on screen during the performance. I wish you well in your future performances which I’m sure will be as well received as ours.”

– Angela Mora, manager of Moorgate Lodge, Rotherham

“The best show we’ve ever had. Can you come back for Christmas?!”

– Paul, resident at Moorgate Lodge, Rotherham


– Ellen, daughter of resident at Moorgate Lodge, Rotherham

“We would like to say a massive thankyou to Simon and Lesley for a fantastic, amazing and very professional performance. Our residents loved the show and we had lots of lovely feedback with the biggest question of all: “When are they coming again?” The show was packed full of variety, from dancing to singing and puppet show. Simon and Lesley interacted with our residents with lots of audience participation. We all loved it and were entertained from beginning to end and were left on the edge of our seats wondering what would come next. With many thanks to you both.”

– Jacqui and Lisa, Activities Coordinators, Moorgate Lodge, Rotherham
