Life Stories for Better Health

Revolutionizing engagement and memory care

LifeBio captures life stories in senior living and health care organizations.

  • The uniqueness of each incredible person is recorded. This is a legacy for the individual, and it assists staff in being more effective and efficient in their work. Knowing a person makes all the difference.
  • Through online tools, digitally-recorded phone interviews, or answering guiding questions in a journal, the amazing story is known.
  • Families assist when needed if their loved ones have cognitive or communication challenges. 
  • LifeBio's evidence-based approach reduces loneliness while increasing social connectedness, feelings of happiness, and overall wellbeing.
  • Staff and volunteers build strong connections when each unique person is more deeply known.
  • LifeBio.com generates instant biographies and saves them inside our HIPAA-compliant platform. 

The LifeBio process creates up to three digital deliverables (which can also be printed and shipped). 

  • Life Story Book – For the Storyteller (a resident, patient, or client) to keep
  • Snapshot Summary – To display for others to learn more about the person
  • Action Plan – For staff education behind-the-scenes

Why it Matters

LifeBio's process helps individualize activities and supports CMS or state regulations and person-centered care, and individualizing service and care just makes sense. We partner with communities and organizations to use the power of life story to impact lives. Life stories improve overall quality, personal relationships, and health outcomes. LifeBio generates biographies online. Our Story Team works hand in hand with communities to summarize and deliver the information in digital or printed formats. Getting Started Training and ongoing support are provided to staff.

Knowing a person’s background and preferences can help defuse difficult situations and lessen boredom and anxiety. LifeBio highlights a person’s life patterns and preferences, helping direct care staff learn the best approach to care. During LifeBio phone interviews, family members provide key biographical information to help your community deliver the best quality service.

Marketing Advantage

Family expectations are high. They expect staff to know the whole person. LifeBio helps marketing, life enrichment, and staff in all levels of care work together to ease onboarding and transitions.

LifeBio differentiates your community in competitive markets. Demonstrating higher levels of connection can enhance the lives of those who participate, their families, and staff. LifeBio can use your initial marketing and social history data as a starting point to build a thorough life story for each resident.

 

Additional Services

In addition to our life story services, LifeBio powers MyHello, a phone-based loneliness intervention. Some people struggle more with social isolation than others, and MyHello is a solution.

Knowing the Whole Person - Made Easier Than Ever

LifeBio CEO, Beth Sanders, explains her motivation for starting LifeBio. Beth tells her personal story of learning about her grandmother as a whole person. She talks about the importance of getting to know a person and their story. LifeBio aides in using a person’s story for person-centered care.

Bring out the best stories and key information. Help the person share his or her legacy without delay or difficulty, for excellence in person-centered or patient-centered care.

“I love LifeBio because it validates people’s lives when they remember important things they did in the past. Even though most of my clients have some form of dementia, I have found that when you ask specific questions, it seems easier for them to access their memories. Asking the questions LifeBio offers can also lead to meaningful conversations, which in itself is a mentally stimulating and social activity.

I truly believe the best thing about LifeBio is how it increases my client’s self-esteem and confidence. Many people with dementia are aware of their memory loss, which can lead to a decrease in engaging in activity, insecurity, and depression. When my clients remember something from their past, it gives me the opportunity to tell them how much they DO remember, rather than how much they do not. It makes them feel special, more alert, and definitely happier!"

Research and Health Care

Use the power of natural storytelling and reminiscence methods to promote wellbeing. Iowa State University found there was a statistically-significant increase in happiness and satisfaction with life when using the LifeBio process with individuals over age 65. Studies and projects with LifeBio were conducted in conjunction with the Mayo Clinic and at the University of Alabama. Since LifeBio increases purpose and meaning, there is a great potential for lowering overall health care costs while improving health outcomes.
