Social Robots and Caregivers Study

Social Robots and Caregivers Study

The MIT AgeLab is recruiting individuals aged 65+ with early-stage dementia and their family caregivers to participate in a virtual study to evaluate a new robot developed by a third-party company.

Eligible caregiver / care recipient duos will be invited to join a Zoom call, during which they will be presented with a short video clip demonstrating a social robot before participating in an interview. Caregivers will also complete a separate questionnaire.

Participants will be compensated upon completion of the study.

If you are a caregiver interested in participating in the study, please complete this brief survey. If you and your care recipient are eligible to participate, a researcher may contact you about next steps for the study.

If you have any questions or concerns about this study, please contact us at agelab-robot@mit.edu.
