I wanted to go online to see if I could find some professional Christmas party entertainment that I could hire for a few hours. My mother lives in an upscale nursing home where residents do not lack for anything. This year will be the first year that my mom will be in there for Christmas, and I wanted to make it special for her. There is already an upscale Christmas party thrown each year, but there is usually just music through the speakers at the venue that is rented just for this purpose.
I wanted something more special for Mom because Christmas is her favorite holiday. Most everyone who lives there with Mom still has full capabilities, but it is peace of mind knowing that the retirement community has full-time nurses and doctors on staff if they are needed. I talked with the director, and I was pleased when she agreed with what I wanted to do. I even offered to pay for the full thing, but she said the budget would allow for live musical entertainment. I showed her the website where I was going to hire from, and she really liked everything she saw there.
I was just going to hire a band, but she went above and beyond that. She did hire a band that will play live Christmas music as well as music from decades ago since that is what all of the people there grew up with. However, she also hired a group of Victorian carolers that is just the perfect touch for something like this. They are dressed just as you would expect, and the quartet sings all of the Christmas carols as they move around the venue. I am so excited to see how all of this looks and sounds, and I know that Mom is excited too.
