Famileo: A Family Newspaper

Bridging the Digital Divide with Famileo



In this episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing Thomas Letourneur and Amy Bryant. We talk about the story of Famileo, a family newspaper that brings families together- an app that was created for families to share their pictures and messages digitally and how Famileo shares and prints a personalized newspaper that is sent to your elder loved one, what life in France looks like right now for our seniors as they social distance, what are the trends with seniors engaging with technology, how Famileo fights loneliness, engages families, promotes intergenerational relationships, and supports senior living facilities. In a world that relies heavily on technology, reaching those that can not or do not want to engage with technology is vital- this is a lifeline for many elders and their families.


Famileo has launched in the United States after it’s widespread success in France and Europe as they are "Grandparents' Favourite Gift". For more information, visit https://www.famileo.com/famileo/en-EU/
