LifeBio captures life stories. We work with thousands of people in the U.S. and around the world to help them share their unique background, lessons learned, and the details of their life’s journey. LifeBio also offers tools used for reminiscence therapy in senior living and in health care settings. LifeBio is based in Marysville, Ohio (a suburb of Columbus, Ohio). If you have questions about how LifeBio can help YOU or a senior care/health care organization, please call us at 1-866-LIFEBIO or 937-303-4576 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The idea for LifeBio began when Beth Sanders, our founder & CEO, interviewed her own grandmother on an old tape recorder. That day, she watched as her grandmother “lit up” as she shared priceless memories. She also saw her grandmother for the first time as a whole person. She was once a little girl, a teenager, a one-room schoolhouse teacher, and a young mom. She was more than just grandma. When Beth realized that her own grandmother was a mystery to her, she realized that countless families face the same problem. They don’t truly know their loved ones the way they could or should. LifeBio helps people ask the right questions to bring out the best memories and stories with the ultimate goal of creating a lasting and priceless legacy. Signup and get started today!
