Long Term Care/Skilled Nursing

Knowing a person's story helps staff learn who a person is and enhances person-centered care.

We empower family members, volunteers, or staff members to quickly and easily record a resident's life story. LifeBio highlights a person’s life patterns and preferences, helping direct care staff learn the best, individualized approach to care each day. LifeBio shows your commitment to deliver the best in person-centered care and memory care.  

See our new LifeBio Memory app in action. It works on both iOS/Android tablets or smartphones. Staff, family, or volunteers can easily engage residents to learn their amazing stories. Having a resident's VOICE captured is priceless.

RESEARCH SUPPORTING LIFEBIO'S EVIDENCE-INFORMED PROGRAM

"LifeBio is a great program that allows our residents to reminisce about the past, express their dreams, and have a wonderful legacy to share with their family. Students who have interviewed our elders have learned history first hand, and felt honored to preserve life stories that may have seemed ordinary at first, but ended up capturing the extraordinary in the process."
