NYC Chapter Members offer some options for getting through the pandemic

  Yoga Classes on Zoom by Elizabeth Hansen

As many of you know, Elizabeth Hansen, a long-time TTN member, has been teaching yoga to older adults – including many TTNers-- for over ten years. She has continued to teach yoga on Zoom and take yoga classes with it, and now, she offers Zoom Yoga classes to you, members of TTN.
She says,
“In this period of lock-down, yoga is really, really good for mental and physical relaxation, not to mention to maintain physical conditioning – and offer relief from the pain and stiffness of arthritis.”
Learn more about Elizabeth and her offer here.


Chapter member Phyllis Melhado, former VP of
   Public Relations for Estee Lauder, has had her work
   published in Town & Country, Cosmopolitan, and The
   Scarlet Leaf Review. The Spa at Lavender Lane is her first
   novel that will take you behind the curtain of wealth and
   glamour in this sassy and sultry beach read. 

   The guests who arrive at the nation’s premier spa at
   Lavender Lane seem to have everything yet each woman
   is in need of rejuvenation that will require more than a spa

   Learn more about Phyllis and her work here.

Let’s stay connected during the Covid-19 self-isolation period!

TTN prides itself on keeping women in our stage of life connected and present in the world. But during this critical period of fighting the coronavirus, we’re the cohort that could become particularly isolated. Here’s how we can thrive until we’re all out and about again:


So much of what TTN offers are our groups that come together for various reasons and on different topics: Transition Peer Groups (TPGs), Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and Caring Collaborative Neighborhood Groups (CC-NGs). Many of these groups are using Zoom video services to continue to stay in touch.

If you have used Zoom before, then you know how simple it is to use. If you haven’t, it’s easy to learn. Click here to find out how it works. (Skype also offers video conferencing for those familiar with it.)

Interested? Identify someone in your TTN group to take the lead and have her contact the chapter committee head in charge of that particular group. They can help your group get a TTN link and password for Zoom. TTN-NYC will cover the monthly subscription charges.

We want to maintain healthy lifestyles during this stressful time. But CC won’t be able to provide our traditional escort services for a while; and we can’t call on other members to provide other in-person services during this social distancing period. However, there are still ways CC members can be of mutual assistance to each other.
  • A little flummoxed over how to order food and drugs online?
  • Want to join a webinar or video or audio conference call but don’t know where to begin?
  • Perhaps you’d just like someone to talk to.  
All good! 
Because during this time, we are temporarily expanding the Member Information Request (MIX) service to all TTN members.

Need some help?
Just email the CC Coordinator at and let her know if you want help with any of the issues above. She’ll email you back with a connection to someone who is happy to help!
Use this link for frequently updated CC resources to help you Stay Well.

We’re a group that likes to explore, pursue new ideas, gather information and then share it! So let's continue doing this, only online! Do you know of or need a good take-out restaurant on the UWS? Recently enjoyed an online museum tour, found a good TV series to binge on? Maybe you want to meet up with a local member in your neighborhood for a walk in the park. Check out our chapter’s blog to see what’s there. And we want your comments so please make a comment under one of the posts. If you have an idea for a post or a great photo to share, tell us by filling out the Contact Form on the blog site. In the meantime, here on our website are some fabulous recommendations that we’ve received from members: 

What to Binge During Our Self Isolation
Cultural And Educational Things To Do
Wellness Resources Resources to Fight Isolation
Coronavirus Humor & Other Clever Bits? 

We look forward to getting our lives and our chapter back to normal. In the meantime, do take advantage of these interim offerings. Let’s stay in touch. And, please do not hesitate to reach out if you are missing that connection. Stay well!

May 2020 Chapter News

Six weeks into lockdown as I write, and TTN and its resourceful members are creatively adapting to a terrifying global virus that has upended many of our assumptions and plans about the future of life as we know it. But, as they say (Wo)man Proposes, God Disposes. And God or the universe has given us Covid-19 to test our resilience and our will. Read more...
