Magdalana is great for all audiences! We hosted the same event at two different times. As is typical for our venue, one show was well attended and the other was a much smaller sized group. Magdalana was not phased by this and presented her discussion with ease. The same level of care and energy was displayed by Magdalana for both showings. We look forward to having her back!

As the new Engage Life Director for Atria Kennebunk I have heard nothing but positive reviews in regards to Magdalana's lectures. She recently visited for her "re-potting" series and the feedback continues to be excellent. Many residents truly look forward to her visits - and we hope to continue with her series for as long as she does them!

We had Magdalana at our facility for the first time today 9/2/19. The tenants enjoyed her very much and I've never seen them so attentive. They were happy to find out she was booked again for Nov. and Dec. We are looking forward to hearing her wide variety of topics well into 2020. Thank You Magdalana!

Having Magdalana come in for her lecture on Re-Potting ourselves was wonderful. Everyone in my center absolutely loved her and told me a few times to get her back. So, I've booked her for more lectures. She's a true treasure to those who she touches with her lecture series. Highly recommended.

Engaging and engaged, Magdalana wowed our Seniors with her lively personality as well as her knowledge of the topics she presented. She provided a truly interactive experience, leaving the group wanting more.

When Magdalena walks into our nursing home, she is like a ray of sunshine. Her positive energy can be felt by our residents and staff. We are so lucky to have her wonderful programs to share with our residents, and her programs have been so helpful and encouraging for them, touching on subjects and emotions that affect them as residents. We always look forward to her visits.

Magdalana is without a doubt one of the best speakers our residents have had the pleasure of having at our community. As the Engage Life Director at Atria Scarborough in Maine, I highly recommend Magdalana. She keeps her audience engaged, intrigued, and entertained. Her spirit is uplifting and infectious. Most importantly, she is an expert in working with seniors and speaking about topics that interest them. Not only is she an experienced professional with the background and knowledge, she is extremely personal. Thank you so much for touching the lives of our residents when coming into our community. Magdalana is a must on everyone's calendar!

I am the Life Enrichment Director at Wingate Residences at Brewster Place on Cape Cod and the residents really love Magdalana's programs. We always have a good sized group attend and it's wonderful to have her energy here! She's calming and offers wonderful insight and positive thoughts. We look so forward to her visits!

Not only do the residents love when Magdalana comes to speak at Stafford Hill Assisted Living, but so do I! I work in the Activities Dept. and I can honestly say that she is a beacon of light bringing positive energy and compassion to all of her lectures. She always welcomes questions and comments and makes everyone feel comfortable about sharing their thoughts and ideas. She's a one-of-a-kind!

Magdalana's seminars are always met with anticipation and positive reflection. Her insight and gentle guidance helps all to look objectively at their own behavior and understand how and why they respond as they do to others; helping to release anxiety and encourages truthful reflection of their behavior in dealing with conflict, either in personal or professional situations.
Magdalana's guidance to understand how & why they react, helping them to resolve issues and to feel good about themselves. Every seminar is always a positive experience.

In my role as the Social Programming Director at Laurelwood at the Pinehills, a senior living community, I am honored to recommend Magdalana as a presenter. Her topics really hit home with our residents and her caring and positive energy make an impression on all who meet her.

She is thoughtful in how she presents and helps people dig deep within their souls to think through problems, ideas, and opportunities. I would encourage any program director to give your residents the opportunity to grow and learn from Magdalana's group presentations!

As the Social Opportunities Director at Carmel Terrace Assisted Living Residence in Framingham MA, I invited Magdalana Siegel in for her Elder Lecture Series. Carmel Terrace is primarily a devout Catholic community--very traditional. At first they were unsure of this new lady with a funky style in their midst. Magdalana quickly won the residents over with her warm and genuine interactions. She has a delicate and gentle way of addressing touchy subjects, and opens the floor to share and discuss. I can't say enough about Magdalana. Love her spirit, her insight and her messages. She is a gift.
Activity Director at the Susan Bailis in Boston. on February 15, 2016 at 6:36 AM said:

I have hired an excellent speaker and group facilitator named Magdalana Siegel to hold lectures at the Bailis and I must tell you that the residents have responded to Maggdalana in an amazing manner. She has a very warm, disarming manner ad presents topics relevant to residents in assisted living environments allowing them to sort out their emotions and feel validated. She provides very positive solutions to elders who have a new environment, family dynamics and the feeling that there is no longer control in their lives.

We have had two sessions in May and June that last about on hour and our residents have requested another series as soon as possible. She is on my calendar for the coming months. Since Magdalana's sessions the residents who were truly anxious about the topics she presented haven't been as vocal with their feelings of lost self control and I've seen more positive outlooks on life in an assisted living facility.

I encourage you to speak with her and if you are in need of a speaker/lecturer/facilitator she is the real deal. One resident who rarely (meaning never) participates in activities raved about the dynamic of Magdalana's session.
