Frequently Asked Questions

I know you have 2 questions you want answered: How much does this cost & How does the Program work?

The Program is completely affordable & will be about THE SAME cost as you may be spending on a single Vendor per month! The next page outlines Packages (with prices) to select for your Residents.

Once you “subscribe” to the Program, each month, you’ll receive links to all the activities….that’s it! Then you can play them through your system or transfer to a flash drive to plug & play them in any area of your facility where you need them. Most clients play them on a TV channel they already use to communicate information & events. It’s that simple & absolutely affordable!  Residents can enjoy in a common area or in their homes.

This unique Program gives Residents activities to look forward to, thus keeping them busy – avoiding depression & frustration that comes with any type of isolation. And what a joy for the families of your Residents to know – you have found an amazing solution to boredom & possible depression for their loved one – all while keeping them safe.  So let’s get your questions.

I’m a business person like you.  It’s all about the numbers. So let’s walk through the math – and that math is your PAIN! Think about the money you are spending – not investing – but spending each & every month.   This should get your attention.

The average facility pays a musician $75 for a 45 minute performance. That’s $300 per month for just a single Vendor. Most budgets allow $500 for activities each month. One event/one Vendor nearly drains the budget.  With Busy Bees Package, your Residents are engaged in 24 Activities PER MONTH! Check it out!

And then, the other HUGE “leak in the boat” – employee expense. What do those Activity Employees really cost you – and this is worthy of evaluation – because the goal of any business is to be as profitable as possible.

Let’s assume the average Activity Employee earns just $36,000. Obviously this may be HIGHER in certain parts of the United States. So my example may be low. That’s $3,000 each & every month that spills out of the General Ledger. Whoa!

The costs to this point (basic salary, employment taxes and benefits) are typically in the 1.25 to 1.4 times base salary range- e.g. the cost range for a $50,000/year employee might $62,500 to $70,000

 And we haven’t addressed – the T word – turnover. It’s expensive to replace even hourly employees, as Investopedia reports the turnover of an $8/hour employee can cost a business around $3,500. Companies spend an average of $1,886 and 47.6 hours a year on training for each employee

And you already know that an Employee costs a company about 30% (+/-) additional dollars in payroll expenses. I won’t do the math for you – as a business leader, you already understand these numbers.  Get with your CFO. The dollars draining from your bottom line are massive.  Employee costs can make or break a company. This is a “no brainer!”
