LifeBio captures life stories of residents in Assisted Living and Memory Care to improve health and wellness. We will work directly with the residents and families, so staff does not have to assume that responsibility.
The story process in Assisted Living and Memory Care typically creates three products that enhance person-centered care:
Care planning requires the life history and information on preferences and goals. The Action Plan educates staff to assist in personalizing care, which lessens boredom and anxiety. Knowing a person’s background and interests can help staff diffuse situations and provide ideas for redirection.
LifeBio makes this easy for you. We work directly with families to gather information. For residents who are interested, we have a process that allows their involvement. Staff or volunteers may help in the process, depending on an organization’s preferences and available time.
LifeBio will offer full training to anyone interested in participating. Our staff can work over the phone, through videoconferences, or in person. LifeBio provides editing on all included products.
LifeBio’s technology is used behind the scenes to build and safely store life stories. Residents and families can add stories and photos online if they wish.
LifeBio can customize agreements for Assisted Living and/or Memory Care.
Family expectations are high. They expect staff to know the whole person. LifeBio helps marketing, life enrichment, and memory 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 residents, 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.
In addition to our life story services, LifeBio powers MyHello, a phone-based loneliness intervention. Some residents struggle more with social isolation than others, and MyHello is a solution. Weekly one-on-one or group calls provide meaningful engagement for those who are isolated in their rooms. MyHello is a great tool for residents who require more attention or individual interaction from staff.
MyHello can be used by itself or in conjunction with our other LifeBio services. For more information about MyHello options click here.
LifeBio offers custom license agreements, which include materials, training, and ongoing support. We are happy to provide you with more information, a sample pack, or a custom quote.
"LifeBio is such a wonderful experience for the staff, family members, and residents. The staff have the opportunity to learn about the resident's life before they come to us, as well as their daily preferences, which is a great tool when providing person-centered care! Residents light up at the final product. Reading about their life and seeing old photos is such a great way to reminisce with them. One resident has carried her published book with her every day since receiving it and loves to stop staff and other residents to share!"
