You are short on time and have a problem to solve as the One-Size-Fits-All programming is no longer working in senior living. Simple yet sophisticated PowerPoint slides provide the framework for a ‘live interactive’ variety show that serves up cognitive exercise and a TRIPLE plug n’ play solution.

Activity Director
  • Do your residents no-show to scheduled programming or let you know they are bored?  #samething  
  • Could you introduce simple technology to offset declining interests in crafts?  #askthemen
  • Difficulty getting men to participate?  Employee churn leaving you over extended?  #helpisontheway
  • Entertainers too expensive or cancel last minute?  #notcool
  • Searching for that Ace-in-the-Hole or that Something-for-Everybody every month?  #aceinthehole
Seniors
  • Our adult children are assessing our social life for us more than ever.
  • Programs for us men will need to be unique and innovative.
  • We like to stretch the noodle and feel valued.
  • Meaningful activity buffers us from depression and improves self-image.
  • We are accepting of technology and welcome new experiences.
  • We never tire of reliving memories that validate our own journey.
  • Happiness equals good cognitive health!
Marketing
  • Are your seniors’ families marketing for you, posting photos on social media?  #selfiesarefree 
  • Challenged to define your differentiators among the competition?  #noWiFineeded
  • Does your website showcase resident programming progressive enough to lure new prospects?  #tripleplay
  • Are budgets limiting exposure through community events?  #startbragging 
  • Searching for that Ace-in-the-Hole to pair with events, family or theme days and the like?  #aceinthehole

Today’s seniors entering communities have a higher acuity and sophistication from experience with the internet and social media.  Younger more agile residents are entering due to reduced capacities, while others enter much older from longer in-home services. Population diversity creates another new social challenge. Furthermore, your calendar programming is online for public scrutiny and comparison shopping. Truth is opportunities abound to introduce simple technology to help you more than just the Wii, and families are expecting more. As most prepare for an influx of tech-savvy seniors, many are still without Wi-Fi.  Introducing your new Ace-in-the Hole monthly programming that serves up a big helping of heart to both your seniors and the business.

About Us

Linda Ricci

Inspired by Linda’s 95 year old mother and an active member in the St. Louis community, Linda wanted to provide the seniors dignified entertainment that was not only fun but would stretch the noodle at the same time.

An IT professional to Fortune 500 companies, she teamed up with St. Louis amateur art studios providing a cornucopia of vibrant artwork to the residents, while putting on a digital variety show like none other.  After so many requests for the interactive concept, Linda went to work to share the SeniorNetShows© to senior communities everywhere.

“I never thought that my full time job could make so many people smile.”

SHOW OPENER - MODULE 1

Each show begins with a high-energy opener that always gets their attention. Either something from their past or introducing something they have never seen before. Dubbed lyrics allows for sing-a-longs.  View demos of the slide show modules below.

MOVIE STAR TRIVIA - MODULE 2
Featured and a favorite. High sensory trivia chocked full of music, movie clips and images from all the decades.  Host narrates an extra helping of  ‘scoop’ on the celebrities of film, TV, sports and music from the scripted notes visible to the host. Seniors relive the best of the best of times. The happiest trip down Memory Lane validating the Golden Age of entertainment.  Movie Star Trivia is approx. 25-30  mins in length.
OLD TIME COMMERCIAL - MODULE 3
Nobody minds the commercials and jingles of yesteryear.  See the USA in your Chevrolet!  Where’s the beef?  Be A Pepper. It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature. Plop plop fizz fizz oh what a relief it is… and by now we know Who squeezed the Charmin?
WHEEL OF $UCCESS and NEIGHBORLY FEUD - MODULE 4
Familiar formats and senior favorites. You are the host with Hannah in the wings to help. Vowels are always FREE.  Each slide is responsive to the clicks on letters/answers on the puzzle boards. Designed for group play and in real time.  The ‘solve’ button is at the ready.  Familiar sounds, clangs, buzzers and applause. This module alternates monthly with Neighborly Feud and Wheel of $uccess. This portion of the show runs 25-30 mins. Set your own pace.
LIFE SMILES BACK - MODULE 5
This finale clip says ‘it’s a wrap’ and showcases WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD it truly is. About 2 mins of real life designed to leave them with a smile until the next time.  Farewell my friends!
