Robin-robot to the elderly

Alzheimer’s Care Armenia (ACA), in collaboration with Expper Technologies has been investigating the use of an emotional support robot named Robin to improve the well-being of our elders at Nork Old Age Home these past few months. We all know, COVID-19 has impacted especially our older adults and their sense of loneliness, especially those living in a facility.

This innovative project is funded by The H. Hovnanian Family Foundation and is endorsed by the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs of the Republic of Armenia. We are currently in the post testing phase of our project. In the meantime, the elders at the home are absolutely in love with Robin the Robot!

So much in love with this amazing new family friend, Robin will spend the next 8 months or so at their home, no doubt, everyone will enjoy and benefit from Robin! Truly life changing.
