Santa Carlucci and Cheryl Claus’ senior daycare visit is usually very simple but can be customized by the caregiver. A typical daycare visit is 1 hour and can accommodate up to 50 adults based on the entertainment required and expectations of the caregiver.
The daycare visit consists of a meet and greet, mingling, and photo taking. Santa will discuss the visit with you making sure you understand what your visit will be like. He will explain what he will do and what you need to do to make the visit extra special. Since different groups may want a specific entertainment need, Santa and Mrs Claus will work with the caregiver to meet those needs.
Mingling and photo taking are the most asked for form of entertainment at senior daycares. Santa mingles into groups and entertains with stories of Christmas long ago, bringing the seniors back to day when they were children. Conversations with senior groups have been centered on world wide traditions of Christmas, children toys then and now, where did we get the symbols of Christmas, and even singing some songs.
Photos with Santa and Mrs Claus is sometimes very touching since, for a lot of seniors, this is the first photo they have ever had with Santa! We always like to make the picture available electronically so grandchildren can get a chance to see them.
Gift giving is not typical with these visits but always the highlight of the visit. Given by the parents or caregiver, picked up by Santa before the party starts, a single gift per person is typical. But before handing out gifts Santa can check his Naughty and Nice scanner app on his phone to see if all the senior has been good. This is always the highlight of the visit and the distinguishing trademark of Santa Carlucci. When all the gifts are opened, Santa and Mrs Claus will stay for family pictures and then we are off to the next family.
We will usually speak about the visit initially on the phone to get a basic overview of what your needs are and what our needs are. When we agree on the basics I follow up with a booking agreement by email that has details about the visit. You fill in the necessary info, agree to the terms of the agreement and return it to me by email. I send you back an agreement notice and the formal booking time slot assignment is made. No bookings are done verbally. Depending on the visit, a 50% deposit may be required. Payment in cash or credit card through PayPal are the only forms of payment accepted.
