About Pricing: The list members of this site are sensitive to the typically leaner budgets of 90% of the senior residential market and intend their rates to apply strictly to those settings. All others planning private, corporate, school and community-wide events, and any other venues (including seniors' communities such as CCRCs and Active Adult/50+ Communities) who can afford to pay the list member's regular market rate should expect to pay the regular rate, which would be disclosed to you when contacted, rather than the rates listed here. Thank you for understanding and respecting their wishes.
Activity Professionals: List member video clips, weblinks, ratings and reviews on their programs (viewable through the 'Video and read more' link) and other material as submitted have been provided as helpful screening tools intended to complement, rather than replace, the conduct of your standard due diligence procedures, for which Seniorplaylist.com assumes no responsibility.
