Abstract

This single-blind, randomized controlled trial (RCT) aims to investigate the use of PARO, a therapeutic, socially assistive pet robot, in improving mood, and stimulating social interaction and communication for people with dementia in the community. Recruitment to the pilot study began in 2014 and the last subject is expected to complete their post-treatment assessment in 2015.
