Why use MyHello?
The statistics are alarming. Loneliness and social isolation have a negative effect on both mental and physical health. People with conditions such as congestive heart failure and COPD have 50% higher rates of loneliness. According to a November 2020 report, children and adolescents are more likely to experience higher rates of depression and anxiety during and after enforced isolation.
Three in five of all Americans are impacted by loneliness, and it is likely that post-pandemic those rates will increase. Even apart from COVID, sometimes just getting out of the chair or out of the house is a challenge when facing chronic pain and problems, which contributes to social isolation and loneliness.
MyHello is the perfect solution. Our research has shown that using reminiscence and being socially engaged can decrease depression and improve life satisfaction.
