LifeBio has introduced a new reminiscence therapy app developed to improve care and quality of life for older adults.

The new app, called LifeBio Memory, uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technology to initiate dynamic story conversations using voice and visual prompts.

LifeBio Memory can record stories and save individualised data and preferences to support care planning.

The company designed the app to address depression and loneliness among older individuals as well as help patients suffering from dementia.

The app was released at the LeadingAge national conference in Atlanta, Georgia, US. It works on both iOS and Android platforms.

LifeBio founder and CEO Beth Sanders said: “We’re excited to officially announce LifeBio Memory which revolutionises person-centred care by addressing the health challenges of depression and loneliness as well as truly engaging those with Alzheimer’s disease or mild cognitive impairment.

“Knowing who people are and providing a useful platform for connecting professional or family caregivers to older adults addresses these key issues that cost Medicare more than $214bn annually.”

The app was developed using part of a $2.49m Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the National Institute on Aging (NIA) working in collaboration with the Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging (BRIA).

The project will now move to a 242-person clinical trial, where BRIA will assess the positive impact in emotional health for older adults as well as increased staff knowledge to enhance person-centred care.

The app is available to health care and long-term care organisations as well as to consumers on a subscription basis.
