Activity Directors ! Dallas/Fort Worth - “Wouldn’t it be Nice” to have a special oldies performance! Don Weitz thinks so...

Recommended Posts

Hi..  Don Weitz wrote to the Activity Directors Network sometime last week asking to share his Contact Info with Activity Directors in the Dallas Fort Worth for -- Facility Entertainer - Pianist - Available -- . 

If you have ever been to the Highland Park Cafeteria , than you've probably enjoyed his music, he plays there 2-3 times a week.  Please visit the Cafeteria, it is Amazing made better by Don's accompaniment .. https://highlandparkcafeteria.com/             Plan an Outing... seriously...

If you would like Don at your facility, send him an email   ..  Go ahead and call around for recommendations, he was at the The Legacy at Willow Bend Memory Care, Independent Living and Rehab, The Reserve, Sunrise on Hillcrest, Briarview, and the Jewish Community Center of Dallas over the last couple of months....  here is his bio , in his own words..



"I am a pianist and I entertain at several retirement communities in the Dallas / Plano / Richardson areas, though I would be happy to expand beyond those cities.


Over the past few months, I have played at Edgemere, The Legacy at Willow Bend Memory Care, Independent Living and Rehab, The Reserve, Sunrise on Hillcrest, Briarview, and for seniors at the Jewish Community Center of Dallas.


Playing for Memory Care is especially uplifting as residents often start singing along with songs they knew 50+ years ago.


I am a regular pianist at Highland Park Cafeteria and entertain there 12-15 times a month.


My repertoire consists mainly of popular music from the 1960s.  My clients like that this appeals to residents and diners 65+ years old.  Folks were in their teens and 20s during the 1960s and often comment, "Thanks for the memories, I haven't heard that song since I was in high school!"  I recently performed a promoted “1960s Night” at Highland Park Cafeteria.


I play by ear, and can easily customize my music list to include hits of the 1950s and earlier, as well as songs from the 70s and later. I establish rapport with the residents by telling the names of the songs and if I know a bit of trivia, sharing that as well, such as when originally recorded and by whom.


Other than your piano, I require no additional equipment.


I’ll be glad to come by and play a tune or two on the piano and discuss how I may be of service. 


Please contact Don Weitz at donsweitz@gmail.com.  “Wouldn’t it be Nice” to have a special oldies performance!"

     Thank you for correcting the information that was released. I recently took the test for certification with NAAPCC and it was a very comprehensive and thorough test. It was not a simple easy test to get you certified. You had to know the information in order to complete and pass. I would recommend this avenue to anyone especially if finances are a struggle for MEPAP I & II. I did purchase the book for long-term care seventh edition and without that I would have struggled.

    Celeste is awesome!! Anytime i have a question she gets right back with me and she is very informative. At first I didn't know if i was going to like the new course just for the fact my MEPAP course was the own pace and I work Full time plus have 3 kids. But i am loving it! It is very structured and with due dates I feel like i am holding myself more accountable for completed assignments sooner than later. It has actually been a beneficial change for me.. Thanks so much!!!

    Good Evening I wanted to let you know that I had completed mepap 1 and had only a couple weeks left of mepap 2 so I had looked at path 2 and have taken the activities test and passed so just sending in the application. I wanted to thank you for giving all your time to us even while Kathy was ill. It didn't go unnoticed, you was a great support and helpful at ideas or even different ways of changing thoughts to positive while feeling defeated. Thank You Stacey Passa AP-BC
