    What is a Certified Wellness Coach and what do they do?

    Our Certified Wellness Coaches develop a deep, meaningful and trust-centered relationship with your loved one through twice-weekly calls. This foundation informs the ongoing development of your loved one’s personalized wellness plan. Our Wellness Coaches also assist in obtaining community resources, responding to fall detection alerts and emergency calls, monitoring wellness signs from the devices provided, and discussing any changes in behaviors and health metrics.

  • What are the qualifications of a Certified Wellness Coach and how are they certified?

    Vimient Certified Wellness Coaches complete a National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching (NBHWC) Program. NBHWC approved programs meet rigorous, published standards for preparing capable, competent health and wellness coaches.

  • What happens if there is an emergency?

    Upon onboarding a new family, the Vimient Wellness Coach will work with them to determine the best course of action the family would like to take in an emergency. If it is deemed appropriate based on the situation presented the Wellness Coach may contact the local non-emergency providers to assist the member further.

    If there is a concern or problem, please call 833-846-4368 and our customer service agent will address your needs.

  • What is the origin of the Vimient name?

    Vimient is the combination of two important Latin root words:

    • “vim” means Vitality, Life, and Growth
    • “ient” means Inclined to

    These ideas come together to create our core concept – “Inclined to life”. Vimient is dedicated to improving the vitality of life for seniors and their caregivers.

  • Technology Related Questions

    How does the installation and setup work?

    A Vimient team member will professionally install all devices in your loved one’s home.

    We can have a system installed and provide services within a few weeks. On average, it takes about two weeks to complete our intake process and to schedule an installation. It only takes 1-2 hours of actual work time to complete our on-boarding process.

    All Vimient team members performing installations undergo background checks and follow strict protocols to ensure the safety of your senior during installation.

  • Does this system require an internet connection?

    No. All transmissions of data are via cellular service. This is included in the service fee.

  • What do you do in the event of a power outage?

    Our scale and watch have battery back-up and store data even if the information cannot be transmitted.

    Our devices are monitored by our central team to assure they are running appropriately, and the senior member and registered caregivers will be notified of any extended outages.

  • What if the system is damaged by someone?

    Vimient will replace or repair broken and/or damaged devices at no additional cost. This is included in the monthly service fee.

  • What are the smart devices and what do they do?

    Vimient caregivers utilize our smart devices to monitor your loved one. These smart devices and connected cellular service are provided at no additional cost to you. These devices include:


    Smart Watch:

    This watch monitors your loved one’s heart rate and physical activity, and it can share their real-time location and activity. It also detects falls and can be used to call Vimient in case of emergency. The watch is water-resistant, but we do not recommend bathing or swimming in it.


    Body Scale:

    The scale is used to monitor weight, Body Mass Index (BMI) and hydration.


    Sleep Mat:

    This thin mat slides neatly between a mattress and box spring. It is used to monitor sleep patterns – including sleep duration, depth, and time spent in and out of bed. We can see if your loved one has taken a nap or been in and out of bed throughout the night.


    Vimient Caregiver App:

    No Wi-Fi needed. All devices connect via cellular service. The Vimient Caregiver App is used by the Certified Wellness Coach to communicate observations and share wellness metrics with their member’s family and caregiving team.
