Keep Families in Touch with Famileo

Famileo is a solution that helps care homes make sure their residents remain socially engaged with their family & community.

With Famileo, residents receive every week/month a paper magazine from their family, filled with news and pictures from their loved ones. This works as a mobile application where they can write to their grandma/grandpa in a care home, an easy way to maintain the bond with them.

Once the care home has subscribed to Famileo, family and friends download the app on their smartphone, tablet or computer. They can then easily upload photos and messages to the app. The platform is confidential; relatives can only access pictures and messages from their own family.

Famileo then reorganises the content and formats it all into a folded magazine. Each week the newspaper is printed and delivered to the resident.

It improves communication between the family and the resident and can provide a vital tool to keep in touch.

Click here to see a sample magazine.

Famileo is already enjoyed by more than 100,000 families in 2,000 care homes across Europe.

To learn more about Famileo, please see video below:

If you are interested in setting up Famileo within your care home or family setting, please contact: hello@famileo.com

New! Life Story Guide Book

Life Story Guide Book

This Life Story Guide Book includes an easy to follow 10 point plan, top tips and best practice guidelines to enable you to design and print your own Life Story book.

Designed for both families and care workers, this 48-page guide takes the guesswork out of an invaluable experience for those working or living with older people who have a dementia.

There are different templates so you can choose between a weekend project or a longer more in-depth experience.

A questionnaire is included that can be edited online in order to help produce bespoke and sensitively focussed interviews.

If you need extra help there is also ongoing email support offered.

Life Story work offers several benefits:

  • The actual process is therapeutic and creatively rewarding
  • Sharing memories and family history can help bring families together and creates a legacy for future generations
  • The finished book can help inform future care needs and improves person-centred care
  • Capturing someone’s Life Story is a perfect way to celebrate a milestone birthday or anniversary
