Health Care & Senior Living

LifeBio offers an evidence-based approach to improve health outcomes through person-centered care. Knowing the whole person and engaging them makes a difference.

LifeBio captures life stories in senior living and health care organizations. The LifeBio Memory reminiscence therapy app (available on iOS or Android tablets or smartphones) assists your organization in learning and knowing the person's life story.  The app will voice record a person's story OR it can help the family record the story too (if someone is unable to communicate for themselves). LifeBio is an evidence-based solution

LifeBio partners with communities and organizations to use the power of life story to impact care. Life stories improve overall quality, personal relationships, and health outcomes. LifeBio uses high tech methods (like our app or web methods) or low tech methods (such as Phone Interviews or Journals) to capture the story information. On-demand training through the app and "live" Getting Started Training are two ways training is delivered to staff. 

Knowing a person’s background and preferences can help defuse difficult situations and lessen boredom and anxiety. LifeBio highlights a person’s life patterns and preferences, helping direct care staff learn the best approach to care. During LifeBio phone interviews, family members provide key biographical information to help your organization deliver the best quality service.

Besides the digital story captured, a popular option is for the LifeBio story process to create these materials. Let's discuss what's preferred for your organization's needs.
