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.
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 conditions, especially for people 65 and older.
MyHello can help. Our research has shown that using reminiscence and being socially engaged can decrease depression and loneliness while improving life satisfaction.
Who uses MyHello?
Anyone can use MyHello. We work with people of all ages. We connect with the older generation in order to lessen the effects of social isolation and loneliness. Our program can also connect with people struggling with mental health and depression.
