Magic for Seniors & care homes
* making a difference! *
As Kelly Kadabra, I really enjoy offering something special and a bit different for the elderly and their daytime entertainment. I offer a Magic for Seniors comedy magic show. I am based in Surrey, England and can travel to London, Middlesex, Berkshire and the borders Hampshire and Sussex.
As you can imagine, life can get a bit mundane when you are living in assisted care or a care/nursing home. Most care homes provide some form of entertainment at around 2pm at least once a week. It is mostly singers who come and entertain on a regular basis, and whilst that is nice, it doesn’t make you belly laugh!
But not so with the Magic for Seniors Kadabra experience! Be prepared to be up-lifted!
I arrive and immediately engage with the residents as I memorize everyone’s name whilst setting up. This is not just a party trick, this is to feel more personal and intimate with them and thus creating a nice environment, which everyone relaxes much quicker into.
Then everyone joins in with the Kelly Kadabra Magic for Seniors Show with audience participation, even the staff get involved and have a great time!
I take particular pride in having developed an entertaining magic show suitable for those suffering with dementia. I have often been told that the audience is more animated and “in the moment” than with other acts booked!
Close-up card tricks are not really suitable for most dementia sufferers, or even most elderly people, an engaging show with participation is much more the ticket! Lot’s of humour, magical amazement and fun competitions is the perfect mix to cheer up any afternoon!
I simply love bringing some energy and laughter to the house bound recycled teenagers with my Comedy Magic Show, Balloon Modelling and Audience participation.
* Also perfect for elderly groups who want to have a bit of good old fashioned fun! Or, learn a new skill!
For those with good hand dexterity, why not try a balloon twisting skills workshop experience? Learn the basics of Balloon Twisting! It’s a great way to keep your brain active with problem solving, hand to eye co-ordination and a really great way to show that grandparents can be cool when you next see the grandchildren!
Please get in touch to find out how I can make a difference in Care & Nursing Homes and Assisted Living.
Or, pass my details on to your elderly parents care assistant.
I have a special discounted rate for care & nursing homes, as I would like to encourage entertainment in this industry. We will all be old one day and I personally hope I end up somewhere that cares about keeping me amused in my later years 😉
Review from an Entertainment Agency
“Hi from The Mack Crew,
Please see below feedback from your Camberley gig:
Kelly managed to keep the members all interested throughout her show, and were all very impressed on how she managed to remember almost everyone’s name. They all got up and helped her when she asked them to which one area I thought we might fail! They were all happy and relaxed when I went round after to see if they had enjoyed it ,no moans or complaints which is good. Some of them said they wondered how she got on in the competition she was going to that night if you have any news on that if you could let me know I am seeing a lot of the members on the 2nd.Dec.
Thankyou again for helping me out once again. Hope you all have a good Christmas and Happy New Year!
Take care, Alison.”
