Human-led, personalized senior care

Making all the difference: Individualized Wellness Coaching

Chosen for their experience, compassion and passion for senior wellbeing, our Certified Health and Wellness Coaches are the heart of Vimient’s unique offering. Extensive training and intensive onboarding prepare our Wellness Coaches to holistically support seniors through long-lasting, trusting relationships.

Health and Wellness Coaches,
transforming senior care

Many seniors are wary of becoming burdens to their families and want to remain independent and in control of their care. Our dedicated Wellness Coaches focus on helping seniors age-in-place for as long as possible. Coaches are specifically trained to be a steadfast ally in facing the challenges of aging.

  • Wellness Coaches are paired with members according to personality traits through a proven method that nurtures successful, productive relationships
  • Twice-weekly phone calls build a trusting bond with seniors, reduce the risk of isolation, and allow Wellness Coaches to add context and understanding to data collected from smart devices 
  • A motivational approach in these one-to-one chats results in a senior who is more active in creating and achieving wellness goals
  • Family and caregivers get a more complete view of seniors’ emotional and mental wellbeing through their own ongoing Wellness Coach monthly calls

Certified by the National Board for Health & Wellness Coaching

Each potential Wellness Coach is carefully vetted for experience in coaching, performance improvement, customer service, and healthcare. And that’s just the start — once they join Vimient, candidates undergo an extensive training program which includes:

  • Certification as an Adults & Seniors Health Coach from the prestigious Dr. Sears Wellness Institute (DSWI), accredited by the National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching (NBHWC)
  • Rigorous coursework in senior wellness, aging-in-place, health issues for older adults, and how to connect seniors and their families with valuable resources
  • Skill-building in motivational interviewing to create positive changes in health and wellness
  • Mentorship from experienced Wellness Coaches for direct observation and in-person education
