Caregivers need support

Nurses find fulfillment and joy in their work, and we want to strengthen this feeling and help your employees to be healthier and more motivated.

Tabea Diakonie,


The app for caregivers.

Simple. Effective. Sustainable.

With the app for caregivers, your employees have an efficient job-specific assistant that they can use at any time. Everything else is taken care of by our team of health, training and digital experts. You don't have to worry about anything.


Certified anti-stress  

and movement training

for nursing professions

Step-by-step instructions

to reduce the stress of typical nursing movements such as transfers from bed to wheelchair

Numerous exercises, workouts and audio content

for exercising and relaxing

​Personal feedback

and assistance

​from our team of experts

Always and everywhere usable

and easy to use

Much more than just an app.

We also train your employees

as HealthCoaches.

At the LifeBonus Academy, we train caregivers to become HealthCoaches. This has a long-term impact on your organization as it anchors stress prevention mentality and tilts the focus towards low-impact movements. The process ensures a constant, well-functioning connection between the caregiver app and the people who use it.


​We strongly believe in a hybrid model with both digital and analogue components:

Digital offers like the app for caregivers have the potential to support the entire care industry across the board. However, the focus is still on the human being. There come the HealthCoaches who act as the much necessary bridge between the digital and the analogue.  


​Feel free to reach us out if you are interested in our HealthCoach program. We look forward to hearing from you.

A glance at the most important

HealthCoach & App for Caregivers

How the program was created

In 2017, based on our then two years of experience as a BGF service provider, we began to analyze the difficulties and hurdles for successful health promotion and to remove them one by one.


Since 2019, we have been testing and optimizing our program in the care sector. So far, approximately 1,000 caregivers have participated. The final part of the optimization began in 2020 and consisted of two elements:


1. the digitalization of the movement and stress management training and education, and a transition to the "app for caregivers".

2. the development of an in-house multiplier concept for employee health promotion, including training and support. We call this "HealthCoach".

These two elements develop to their full effect in the team, as a hybrid solution: up to 50 caregivers per HealthCoach use their app for caregivers. In the app, they will find a complete package of target group-friendly, job-specific exercises and stress management training that will improve their health and make every day caregiving easier.

The in-house HealthCoach, who is still a caregiver with about 75% of the working time, accompanies and motivates the colleagues, and is the contact person or partner for questions about the training content or the app. He or she organizes the health promotion programs in companies.

The LifeBonus team accompanies the caregivers as digital trainers in the background and supervises HealthCoaches on a weekly basis.

The "HealthCoach & App" program is currently being used in 22 facilities and services in the Hamburg area covering approximately 2,100 caregivers. The app and the program have been very well received by the caregivers, with between 70% and 90% of the staff participating in the programs.

What is a HealthCoach

A HealthCoach is a nursing professional who acquires competence in nursing-specific health management during a two-day classroom training, a subsequent digital e-learning measure and individual weekly support.


HealthCoaches act as multipliers for colleagues and company management in their care facilities, ambulance services and hospitals with the aim of introducing, consolidating and further developing health promotion programs. They accompany their colleagues during app-based training sessions in stress management, job-specific exercises and strength training. Health coaches continue to perform their nursing duties and spend only 25% of their working time with HealthCoach tasks.

Benefits of a HealthCoach

The use of a HealthCoach ensures the continuation of health promotion programs, which normally end after the conclusion of health promotion funding by a statutory health insurance fund.


The hybrid training, consisting of a HealthCoach in combination with the app for caregivers, takes place on an equal footing, contributes accordingly to a high acceptance of the measure among the employees and is integrated into the daily routine.

Tasks of a HealthCoach

HealthCoaches are multipliers for preventive and health-promoting behavior within their institution and towards colleagues who are accompanied in their everyday nursing work. In combination with the app for caregivers, they support colleagues in learning and applying low-stress movements and stress management techniques.

Within a facility, a HealthCoach is responsible for workplace health promotion. This includes support in setting up health structures in the company or expanding existing structures, as well as designing internal measures for health promotion and prevention. The tasks also include supporting internal corporate communications with regard to occupational health promotion measures and active participation in internal, topic-related working and steering groups.

Use of a HealthCoach in the facility or nursing service

The use of a health coach can be integrated into his everyday care work as a nursing specialist and takes place in close coordination with the nursing service management. The exemplary weekly overview shows a possible use.


The LifeBonus Academy

While developing the program of an in-house multiplier for job-specific health promotion of nursing staff, we realized that no program exists in Germany that offers adequate  qualification in this particular field. Under the leadership of the experienced professional athlete and soccer coach Holger Stanislawski, the LifeBonus Academy was therefore founded in Hamburg in December 2020. Together with a team consisting of doctors, psychologists, physiotherapists, sports scientists and sports rehabilitation trainers, Holger Stanislawski developed a curriculum that guarantees high-quality and well acknowledged training and support for the HealthCoaches. Since October 2021, the Academy has successfully trained 15 HealthCoaches, who are already actively deployed by their companies.


"The HealthCoach & App for Caregivers" program consists of the advanced training to become a HealthCoach, twelve months of individual support by digital coaches from LifeBonus Gesundheitsmanagement GmbH, and the app for caregivers.


All training content has been digitized by the Academy. In order to best integrate participation in the individual courses into the everyday life of the prospective HealthCoach, the LifeBonus Academy relies on a combination of a virtual course room and an e-learning platform.

The e-learning platform enables individual self-study without predefined course times. In the virtual course room, course participants meet at set times to work on case studies together, deepen topic related understanding in workshops and exchange ideas with the lecturers.

Each training course is followed by an online learning success check. After successful completion of the training, the HealthCoaches receive a certificate.

A detailed support concept tailored to the needs of the HealthCoach and his or her facility ensures that the knowledge acquired is consolidated and actively applied in everyday care and in the respective facility. As part of the 30-minute weekly online support, each HealthCoach is individually supported according to a predefined concept. This includes, for example, solving any problems that arise during the app-based physical activity training together and implementing elements of workplace health promotion in the company. In addition to the app for caregivers, each HealthCoach receives a tablet with all training documents, templates, sample presentations and much more for the qualified execution of their tasks.


In addition, HealthCoaches are personally visited at least three times by their own digital trainer at the facility, nursing service or hospital and receive on-site training.

Program content

A further three-week training to become a HealthCoach comprises a total of 48 course hours and is made up of an online introductory module, a two-day attendance course at the LifeBonus Academy in Hamburg and the online training courses 1 - 6.
