Since the outbreak of COVID-19, there seems to be no slowdown in the number of infections and deaths. While the world powers are working round the clock to find a cure for this deadly novel corona virus, social-distancing, self-isolation, and restriction of movement are the only tried and proven ways to stem its further spread. However, these strict restrictions of visitation, isolation, and social distancing have caused senior people to be on the verge of greater mental health risk. More and more seniors living in nursing care facilities or their homes are feeling isolated and depressed. In such a critical time, technology has become the greatest friend of senior caregivers and healthcare providers. The user friendly tablet for seniors is allowing them to connect with their family and friends and keep their minds off the disturbing news. These tablets also offer a getaway to the world of entertainment, uninterrupted access to games, multi-media content, videos, TV shows, etc. However, other types of advanced technologies are being used to serve the senior population during the pandemic. Senior living communities, in-place aging facilities, assisted living homes around the globe are looking for other ways to keep their residents engaged. In this article, we will look into these technologies and how they are being put in use. Robots for Personal Assistance Many senior living facilities have introduced robots powered by artificial intelligence into their communities to look after seniors’ health. Besides offering the residents companionship, robots are being deployed to check and record the health of the senior residents. Since older people are at higher risk of catching the infection, the use of robots minimizes human contact while ensuring proper care for the seniors. Some robots are pre-configured with tablets and can be operated by seniors with ease. These robots are designed to entertain the residents and allow them to stay in touch with their loved ones. The robots can also function game tablets for adults allowing them to spend their time honing their cognitive skills. Robots for Telemedicine Facilities The onset of the Corona virus and its rapid spread has left the healthcare systems in need of more medical professionals and robust mechanism for remote communication with patients. Telemedicine has emerged as a promising technology for senior healthcare. By coupling telemedicine and robotic technology together, on time, remote medical consultation can be made possible. Not only are robots capable of interacting with quarantined seniors, but they can also be programmed to send medical reports and emergency alerts to the doctors and caregivers. The use of robots in healthcare has shown to decrease the strain on human professionals but at the same time, reduce the spread of the virus. Drone for Delivery of Medical Supplies Minimizing human-to-human contact is one of the most effective methods to prevent the spread of Coronavirus. Since the aging population is more susceptible to catching the infection, it’s important to reduce physical interaction with them. Seniors require round the clock care and medicines. Given robots and drones are immune to disease, they are proving to be the best substitute for medical professionals. Drones and robots are put to use to deliver essentials and medical supplies within senior communities and nursing homes. Moreover, e-commerce companies have incorporated drones and robots for home delivery of essential goods and food items.
