What is MyHello?
MyHello is a tech-powered, LIVE phone visit platform that increases social engagement using proven life story work. MyHello calls are "life story focused" to build meaningful and lasting relationships.
Why use MyHello?
MyHello addresses social determinants of health and builds social connections to help those experiencing loneliness and social isolation. Loneliness impacts 43% of people age 65 and older. Due to COVID, these numbers may be even higher.

Who does MyHello serve?
MyHello works with health plans, area agencies on aging, mental health boards, senior care organizations, and more. MyHello assists organizations that provide services for those at risk of social isolation and loneliness.
MyHello MATCH – MyHello provides a tech-powered system to dial out to two participants for weekly phone visits. MyHello matches two participants, based on their individual profiles, to talk in order to reduce loneliness and social isolation. Proven topics for life story conversations are provided. Any type of phone will work with the technology powering this match behind the scenes. Inclusion and equity in participation is important to us. MyHello MATCH is typically a 3-month program, but it can be extended based on your organizations' requirements.
MyHello GUIDED - MyHello's in-house Guides are "guiding" the life story conversations each week. A strong bond is formed between our Guides and typically people who require more social interaction than they normally get. Participants receiving calls can be any age but are usually 65+.
MyHello GROUP - MyHello offers group reminiscence therapy to populations within a health plan or a provider setting. Calls happen via phone or using online methods. A moderator poses curated, proven topics each week, and conversations are uplifting, fascinating, and stimulating for the brain - and the heart. People learn and grow from each others' incredible life experiences. An excellent opportunity to help those facing loneliness or social isolation. Research Link
MyHello uses the LifeBio Reminiscence MethodTM with proven, research-based life story questions to open new conversations during one-on-one calls. Reminiscence therapy is found to reduce depression and loneliness. Topics of conversation include things such as: childhood memories, school or work experiences, family relationships, historical events, hobbies, and life lessons. Many times the calls naturally start with conversations about daily life and lead to conversations about the past, present, and future.

"MyHello is an easy way for seniors to connect with someone at a time that works best for them. While MyHello is not intended to be therapy, there certainly are benefits to decreasing anxiety and depression while seniors stay connected."
