In addition to our life story services, LifeBio powers MyHello, a phone-based loneliness intervention geared towards the aging population. We know there are some residents that struggle more with social isolation than others. MyHello is a solution that provides weekly one-on-one or group calls that provide meaningful engagement for those who are unable or prefer not to leave their rooms. MyHello is also a great tool for residents who may require more attention or individual interaction from staff. MyHello can be used by itself or in conjunction with our other LifeBio services.

"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."
LifeBio offers custom license agreements, which include materials, training, and ongoing support. We are happy to provide you with more information, a sample pack, or a custom quote.
