Scientists have long known that owning a pet can offer a variety of health benefits, from lowering cholesterol levels and blood pressure to helping with feelings of loneliness. Researchers discovered that a robot companion can offer benefits to senior adults similar to that of a living animal. That’s one of the many reasons why we launched our first Robotic Pet Social this month! The residents here at The Springs enjoyed every second they had to socialize with our robotic puppy that we named “Jewel” and our kitten “Pearl”.
