OUR DVDS WILL ENRICH YOUR RESIDENTS' LIVES!
ENHANCE THE DAILY EXPERIENCE OF YOUR ASSISTED LIVING RESIDENTS! Your residents will benefit from viewing our unique Virtual Experience DVDs, whether those residents are active seniors or seniors with mobility problems.
What if your active residents could take a daily walk in Rome... or on the Isle of Capri..... on in London... or in a quaint English Village? Well, they can travel the world with our series of beautiful Virtual Walk DVDs filmed in the United Kingdom, France, Egypt, Italy, Greece, and the United States, as well as other beautiful places around the world. Viewing our virtual travel DVDs will make your residents' exercise time more enjoyable and also will make their exercise time seem shorter, traveling in Europe as they exercise.
Your residents with mobility problems can view our Virtual Experience DVDs and experience "travel" to scenic locations throughout the world in a way not possible with traditional travel videos. Your less-active retirement home residents can view one of our Virtual Walk DVDs and instantly find themselves traveling over the ancient stones of the Appian Way outside of Rome, or visiting the Piazza San Marco in Venice, or exploring England's picturesque Cotswolds and their idyllic villages, or enjoying the village of Ravello on the Amalfi Coast, or walking a verdant trail on Hawaii's island of Oahu - the list goes on and on. And all without the physical limitations that would normally exist for individuals in wheelchairs or for persons with other types of physical disabilities. Viewing our scenic travel DVDs allows your less-active retirement home residents to enjoy a richer, broader experience than would otherwise be possible for them.
Your inactive retirement home residents will enjoy traveling via our scenic DVDs, enhancing their daily activities through virtual enjoyment of beautiful locations throughout the United States and other countries. Our Virtual Experience DVDs will open the world of travel to your retirement home residents who have physical disability or mobility limitations. These unique Virtual Tour DVDs allow easy access to historic and beautiful locales such as Rome, Venice, Paris, London, Amalfi, Egypt, and the United States. We'll take care of the steps and the stairs so that your less-active retirement home residents can relax and enjoy the scenery. We're committed to enriching the world of those individuals with physical and other types of disabilities!
With our virtual travel DVDs, wheelchairs, walkers, arthritis, or oxygen tanks are no longer a problem. In fact, any sort of physical disability or mobility issue will not prevent your retirement home residents from enjoying world travel in a way not possible with traditional travel videos or DVDs. Here's what one of our customers recently wrote us:
THANK YOU AND YOUR FAMILY FOR MAKING THESE VIDEOS. I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO TAKE MY ELDERLY GRANDMOTHER ON VIRTUAL WALKS TO DISTANT LANDS WHERE SHE WOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GO BUT HAS ALWAYS DREAMED OF. THE QUIET MOMENTS OF DISCOVERY THAT SHE AND I HAVE SHARED DURING OUR EXPLORATION OF NEW LANDS IS A WONDERFUL GIFT. SHE LOOKS LIKE A CHILD WITH A BRIGHT WORLD AHEAD OF HER. I'M HONORED THAT I CAN HELP FULFILL A DREAM OF HERS. I THANK YOU AND YOUR FAMILY FOR HELPING TO MAKE IT POSSIBLE. NEWEST EAGER FAN, KIMBERLY W."
Active or inactive, your retirement home residents will enjoy virtual travel to locations which they may have visited in the past, to locations which they may visit in the future, or to locations which they may never visit in person but which they would like to enjoy through viewing our virtual walk DVDs. And your residents will enjoy an enhanced experience at your retirement home as they participate in virtual travel around the world.
Your active residents, whether using a treadmill or other exercise equipment, will experience a healthy, low-impact fitness workout while "walking" in Rome, Venice, London, the Isle of Capri, Cairo, Paris, Istanbul, or one of the Greek Isles. Our DVDs can also offer your retirement home residents an opportunity to travel to locations which they have not previously been able to visit. Whether revisiting a previously-enjoyed location or discovering the beauty of a previously-unvisited site, your residents will find our DVDs to be a very enjoyable accompaniment to, and enhancement of, their exercise efforts.
Seniors are encouraged to be active seniors in order to improve and maintain their mobility, balance, fitness, and mental alertness. Exercise is an important component of remaining healthy and fit. Low-impact exercise, such as a walk on a treadmill may provide, can be greatly enhanced through the simultaneous viewing of one of our DVDs. Retirement home residents can also enjoy higher-impact exercise activities while viewing our virtual travel DVDs. Your active retirement home residents can travel as they exercise - visiting beautiful locations from the comfort of their exercise area!
When the weather in your area is not conducive to outside activities, your retirement home residents can utilize their indoor exercise devices while viewing our scenic DVDs and visiting the locations available through these DVDs. Your retirement home residents will be able to continue their fitness efforts even when the weather outside is unfit for excursions - when the weather is too cold in Winter months or too hot in Summer months to remain comfortably outside for any length of time. Your residents will be able to continue exercising throughout all the year, and viewing our scenic DVDs as they exercise will transport them to more-congenial locations when their home location is not at its best. Our scenic DVDs can help your residents maintain the motivation to continue exercising on a regular basis when local weather makes it difficult or impossible to leave your retirement home in order to exercise. Even when your local weather is unsuitable for exercising, your retirement home residents can still enjoy exercising as they view our DVDs, maintaining their health and fitness so that they may better participate in events in their own locality.
Viewing our travel DVDs as they exercise may provide your retirement home residents with destinations which they may wish to visit in future travels; their exercise will help maintain the mobility and physical fitness which will enable them to participate more fully in the activities involved in travel.
Of course, your retirement home residents should always consult a physician before starting a new exercise regimen.
World Travel is at the fingertips of both your active and your inactive retirement home residents. With our many scenic travel DVDs to choose from, the hard part is selecting which locale to explore first! All of our Virtual Experience DVDs have the natural sounds as they were recorded on site, and some also include a music soundtrack. And all our DVDs include a Bonus Chapter on the location of the walk.
Received your dvds earlier this week. What triumphs they are! I just love them, thank you, and the little "shorts" with the string quartet - very beautiful. I think I will have to send your "Morning in Venice" to my sister in Adelaide - she had her 50th birthday in Italy just last year. She loved Venice, and we hope to go there and UK in 2012. Thank you again for the dvds, they are truly "therapeutic" for me at the moment, and very restful as well. Went to the hospital today to have my 5th of 6 chemo treatments, however they sent me home because my white cell count is too low at the moment - need to wait till next week - frustrating. Came home grumpy, and put your dvds on - better now! Haha! Take care, Kind regards, Kathleen
Your product has made it much easier for me to get on the treadmill, as my Cardiologist has suggested to increase my workouts from 3 times per week to 6 or 7 times. Before finding your product, I had used regular travel DVDs during my workouts, but frankly, they did not inspire motion or a walking cadence as your virtual walk DVD does. I now enjoy the workout, rather than merely endure it. I'll undoubtedly add more in the near future, including the virtual bike rides for both my treadmill and my stationary recumbant. Great product!
