"Assessing the Use of Communication Robots for Recreational Activities at Nursing Homes Based on Dementia Care Mapping (DCM)"

HCI International 2016
17 - 22 July 2016, Toronto, Canada
"Using information communication technology (ICT) and communication robots (hereafter referred to as "robots"), we examined a system to assist recreational activities at nursing homes. The system relies on visual content to deliver a variety of recreational activities, from exercises to reminiscence therapy. Robots support those activities by interacting with nursing home residents. These systems are currently being evaluated at various elderly care facilities, where the prototype has been installed. This report will review the recreational contents that are currently under examination and the outline of the assessments, as well as the summery of the data that has been gathered so far and the effectiveness of this service suggested by the summery."
