Senior Helpers Announces New National Partnership with LifeBio
Innovative concept allows caregivers and family to record seniors' life stories for family and future generations
Raleigh, NC, December 01, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Senior loved ones are a rich resource of family history and unforgettable stories. The tales that span the course of a lifetime capture the essence of the individual and, in so many cases, preserve their living legacy. Through the natural course of time, these stories can be lost or forgotten – but a new national partnership aims to fix this problem.
Senior Helpers, a leading national in-home senior care provider, and LifeBio, a company dedicated to permanently preserving family memories, are now teaming up so the timeless stories of seniors from coast to coast will no longer be lost in old age or the passing of generations.
The companies are now working together to offer Senior Helpers' clients and their families the chance to capture life stories of aging loved ones by way of a memorable keepsake.
"One of the core responsibilities of our caregivers is to form a relationship, a friendship, with the clients they work with day in and day out," says Peter Ross, CEO of Senior Helpers." These relationships lead to great natural conversations as seniors talk about fond memories of the past and tales from their younger years. This new partnership with LifeBio is a perfect connection for our clients and their families – an easy way to turn a lifetime of stories into a permanent document and a lasting chronicle of an aging loved one's story."
LifeBio's Life Story Journal and Memory Journal, now available through participating Senior Helpers franchises, are bound books with specially designed questions written to engage seniors' memories and help them recall significant moments in their lives. The book is left in an elderly loved one's home so family and caregivers can pick it up, ask a few questions and document a senior's story over the time they spend together. The LifeBio journals can also be used by Senior Helpers caregivers as preventative exercises for seniors at-risk of dementia and Alzheimer's development – working to stimulate the brain and memory in specific, targeted ways.
"Everyone has a story to tell, and the tools we provide at LifeBio help aging loved ones share memories and life's journey with their family in a very meaningful way," said Beth Sanders, LifeBio Founder and CEO. "As a national leader in senior care, Senior Helpers works with thousands of older adults each day. The company's caregivers hear inspiring stories of things that have happened through the course of their clients' lives. Working together, we can help seniors and their families document all of these unique and priceless memories so the kids, grandkids and great-grandkids can all get a sense of who these individuals are and all that they have accomplished so far."
LifeBio's Life Story Journal and the Memory Journal are both available to Senior Helpers clients at a significant discount off the retail price – an offer available only through a local Senior Helpers office.
