What are Vivo exercise classes like?
Each 45-minute class provides a warm-up, balance exercises, exercises to build your muscle strength, and a dual-task exercise: an exercise that will challenge your brain health. The class concludes with a cool-down and stretching. No equipment is needed, but feel free to bring weights or resistance bands if you have them! Most of all, Vivo classes are fun and will leave you feeling energized and stronger!

Shari will be teaching the class live on Zoom and will provide modifications of exercises making this class easy to do from a chair or standing for all fitness levels.

Spaces are limited to 15 participants; register today!

We often take great joy in gifting our loved ones mementos from our lives, our travels, and sometimes our family histories. (Hello family heirlooms and antiques!) The gift may be exquisite, but without the ‘why,’ our loved ones may be left wondering, what is this, why do I now have it, and what am I supposed to do with it (not wanting to hurt anyone’s feelings being top priority).
As the founders of Artifcts, we’ve thought a lot about the power of why, and the magic that ensues when you gift a loved one a why along with that beloved family heirloom. Curious?

All Village to Village Network Members are invited to join us on a monthly call to talk about the important topic of supporting our most frail members. As the society ages, it is inevitable that our membership will age as well, so whether your Village is currently serving frail members or preparing to serve them, we will use this monthly call to unpack this complicated programming consideration.

Topics open to discussion include, but are not limited to: developing a volunteer-based care coordination system, creating healthy boundaries for member service delivery, setting realistic expectations for members and their families, coordinating with local community resources, when to make a referral to Adult Protective Services, etc. Please come with your questions and we will try to address as much as we can in the hour we have.

Note: If you have any questions or comments about Frail Members, please contact vtv@vtvnetwork.org.

These monthly talks are designed to help Villages use RunMyVillage more effectively. Each month has a different topic. The intended audience always includes the technology community within your Village; in addition, others in the Village may be invited based on the planned topic. Each of the User Talks has time for Villages to ask RunMyVillage-related questions to RMV and to other Villages. Examples of what we plan for these talks: RMV new release updates and discussions, results of surveys of desired enhancements to RMV, discussion of best practices and common issues particularly where Villages use RMV is different ways, and orientations for new Villages. If you have ideas for topics, email us at RMVusers@vtvnetwork.org. Videos for all previous User Talk webinars are on the VtV website.
