Taking these guidelines into consideration, LifeBio has created a streamlined process to meet the needs of each community. Staff, volunteers, or residents with their families can help gather story information.
We have introduced a new app called LifeBio Memory (available on iOS or Android tablets or smartphones) to assist your organization in learning and knowing the person's 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 themselves). In addition, Phone Interviews or Journals can be used as well.

LifeBio will customize agreements for every community.
"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.
