What is MyHello?
MyHello is a weekly phone call that increases social engagement. Our MyHello Guides can contact a parent, grandparent, or other loved one. This is more than just a check-in call. Guides will talk with your loved one, using reminiscence to open the door to new conversations. It’s a meaningful way to check in and see how someone is doing from week to week.
Why use MyHello?
Everyone loves a friendly phone call, and that’s exactly what MyHello is. Staying connected is fun, but it takes time. We have the time.
There are many reasons why MyHello could be your solution for keeping your loved one engaged and connected! Do you relate to any of these?
MyHello can help! Listening is what we do best! Our goal is to make your loved one’s day and talk about something new and different each week! MyHello Guides are trained in the art of conversation and look forward to visiting with your loved one. We have real conversations and talk about more than just the weather, sports, or the news.
MyHello can alleviate social isolation and lessen feelings of loneliness. Our research shows that reminiscing and making connections improves life satisfaction and reduces depression. Decreasing depression and loneliness can lead to better sleep quality, lower inflammation, and improve cardiovascular health. MyHello helps people appreciate the lives they have lived, while impacting their physical health and wellbeing.

“I like being a Guide simply to speak with a person, validating that what they have to say is important. I trust this is elevating their sense of worth, knowing that someone cares. I enjoy giving them the opportunity to express themselves.
The best part of the job is just listening to them. Their ideas, what they have been doing, what they have been thinking about, news and memories of their family, what’s new in their life. I feel the support I give them helps enable them to face the challenges they may have. The best thing I have learned from my partners is that just having a friend to talk to can make such a difference.”
