PARO is a therapeutic robot in the form of a baby seal, developed in Japan to respond to touch, light, sound, temperature and positioning.

PARO has been shown to have a positive psychological effect on people living with dementia, improving their relaxation and motivation. It can also improve the socialisation of patients with each other, and with caregivers. PARO responds to sound and can even learn common words over time, such as its chosen name.

Alzheimer’s Australia Vic is now lending PARO to facilities to test with their residents. For more information, contact Phoebe Lindsay on 03 9816 5750 or phoebe.lindsay@alzheimers.org.au
