Co-investigate robotic-assisted virtual care for older people with dementia

The project aims to tackle social isolation and loneliness in older people with dementia in Long-Term Care (LTC) homes. The team takes a collaborative approach to co-investigate the implementation of a telepresence robot Double 3 in LTC to support social connection. We co-research with community stakeholders, emphasizing meaningful involvement of patient partners (people with dementia), family partners, decision-makers in Vancouver Coastal Health and representatives in Alzheimer Society throughout all phases of the research process. This research will make British Columbia a leader in robotic-assisted virtual care research, which can transform, modernize, and revitalize LTC in communities.
