Therapeutic Robotic Pets

Therapeutic Robotic Pets

DOEA partnered with Ageless Innovation’s Joy for All® Companion Pets to enhance meaningful interactions among older adults, their caregivers, and family members. DOEA began delivering therapeutic robotic pets to socially isolated seniors and adults living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias in April of 2020. The interactive companion pets help combat loneliness or depression by improving overall mood and quality of life.  Robotic pets remain available through DOEA’s online application and are available for any older adult. DOEA has distributed over 7,027 robotic pets to date.
