Using Social Robots in Dementia Care
9.30 – 2.30
The Alzheimer Society of Ireland, in collaboration with NUI Galway and IT Sligo, is hosting a free online workshop to discover how social robots are being used in dementia care and will explore how they may be used in future care models in Ireland.
The online workshop, ‘Using Social Robots in Dementia Care: Current challenges and future possibilities, will be held via Zoom on Wednesday, 20 January 2021.
The workshop will be of interest to social carers, family or informal carers looking after somebody with dementia, as well as healthcare policy makers and technologists working in this field.
The session also aims to ignite a discussion where participants can share their experiences and views in relation to how we may use social robots in dementia care in the future and what they see as potential benefits and risks of increasing use of such robots.
Members of the public can get their free ticket on the Eventbrite page – please register by Friday, 15 January 2021 HERE
