Photographs play an important role in our lives – they connect us to our past, they remind us of people, places, feelings. They remind us of who we are, especially when we feel vulnerable. Our care philosophy is all about treating our hospitalized loved ones as people.
The hospital can be an unsettling place. You have the power to make it less so.
Connecting to patients' stories enables doctors and nurses to cater to more than just their medical needs. It enables them to build a safe space that balances the foreign nature of the hospital ward. But we can't do it alone. We need you.

How WELL O GRAM Started
My father survived a traumatic brain injury from a motorcycle accident in 1987. He had difficulty communicating, so I became his voice. By simply sharing stories about his passion for motorcycles, baseball, and cars the care team began to see the person we knew and loved. He was transformed from just another patient to a person.
Thousands of hours spent in hospitals, rehabilitation centers, and assisted living facilities confirmed that many patients and family members feel anonymous, lonely, and disconnected. I made it my mission to assist them in telling their stories without having to be present.
I wanted to humanize the narrative to bridge the gap between “us” and “them” to arrive at a “we”.
