Feedback:

The Active Minds Marketing Event we held recently was one of our biggest turnouts ever for a “lead-generating” event. We literally had to turn people away. The success of this event was due to many factors, including the strength of the Active Minds database, the thoroughness of their preparation of all facets of the event, and the power of the Active Minds name to draw people in for what they know will be a stimulating and engaging event. As the host, we achieved results we were after – to showcase our community and to advance our relationships with prospective residents and family members. MorningStar of Applewood is pleased to partner with Active Minds, a life enrichment and educational organization viewed as a trusted source of quality and class for seniors throughout the greater Metro Denver area. To top it off we got a deposit for a new move-in right after the event! —Ann O'Neill, Marketing Director, MorningStar of Applewood

My sponsorship of Active Minds has resulted in a number of successful referrals for my business. My company helps families navigate transitions for their aging loved ones. Because Active Minds is such a trusted resource for seniors, our association with them gives us an advantage when families are seeking help. —Joan Therese Seivert, founder of Connections Unlimited, LLC

We host Active Minds events because our residents love the programming and it's a great way to showcase our building to potential residents. Within two weeks of our first event we had someone sign a new lease as a result! Since then we've gotten another move-in from the programming and we're sure it will continue. We're thrilled with our partnership with Active Minds and we are planning a full schedule of events for this year, it is fast becoming an integral part of our community. —Donna Jack, Community Manager, 1375 High Street

One gentleman came up to me and commented that he will always remember the Maxim name for our sponsorship of this Active Minds event. That's what it's all about! —Krisha Perry, Maxim Healthcare Services

My sponsorship of the Active Minds presentation was definitely worthwhile! Anyone working with seniors should sponsor a program. The opportunities to talk with seniors and discover their needs and fears are wonderful. —Ann Roadarmel, Home Real Estate

We just had a couple move in who cited the Active Minds program as a key part of their decision to move here. When they saw the flier on the wall during a tour, they said, “Oh, you have Active Minds here! That's wonderful! We love them.” —Troy Dunning, Activity Director, Christian Living Clermont Park

The Active Minds program was responsible for one of our recent move ins. We think the program is a great marketing tool. —Cyndy Walters, Atria Inn at Lakewood

We got a move-in from our very first Active Minds event. Sandy attended a program on Venezuela and at that time had no thoughts of assisted living. Two weeks later, however, she realized that caring for her husband was getting overwhelming and she called us. She moved him in the next month. She never would have known about us if it hadn't been for the Active Minds event she attended here. We love the Active Minds programs and it is helping us connect with our future residents! —Michelle Newitt, Marketing Director, MorningStar Senior Living at Applewood.
