Readeo creates a new way to brighten lives and build lasting bonds through the simple, yet powerful experience of reading together. These bonds strengthen family ties – and studies* show that healthy relationships promote both mental and physical health.
This is why we are partnering with world-class institutions to benefit children and their families in hospitals across the country—at no cost to the hospital, patient or their family.
Readeo in hospitals allows patients to select from a library of quality children’s books. A child can read a book with a friend, a family member or with a Child Life Specialist. If patients and their families have a webcam, they can also read with family and friends who are far away.
No laptops or webcams available in your hospital? Not a problem. You may choose to offer Readeo to families who have their own.
