HOW MYHELLO SERVES ORGANIZATIONS
MyHello works with health plans, mental health boards, and senior care organizations. Options include:
MyHello uses the LifeBio Reminiscence MethodTM with proven, research-based life story questions to open new conversations during one-on-one calls. Topics of conversation include things such as childhood memories, school or work experiences, family relationships, historical events, hobbies, beliefs, and values. Many times the calls naturally start with conversations about daily life and lead to conversations about the past, present, and future.
HOW MYHELLO SERVES FAMILIES
Families can arrange to have MyHello contact a parent, grandparent, or other loved one for a meaningful, friendly conversation. MyHello can alleviate social isolation and lessen feelings of loneliness. Weekly calls, typically up to 30-minutes in length, are scheduled based on time preference and availability.
This is more than just a check-in call. These weekly calls are socially engaging, meaningful, and FUN visits. The goal is to make the person’s day and talk about something new and different each week! MyHello Guides are highly trained to visit and enjoy conversation with your loved one.
