ZEST Dementia & Aged Care showcased PARO – The Therapeutic Companion Robot at the recent Diversional and Recreational Therapists Association Conference in Brisbane. PARO held centre stage while the delegates enjoyed providing loads of cuddles, love and attention.
Dan from the The Diversional and Recreational Therapists Association also interviewed Christine Bourke from the Carinya Home for the Aged in Atherton who was attending the Conference. Carinya currently uses two PAROs and they have now become an integral part of their lifestyle program. Also being interviewed was Tony Agnew from ZEST Dementia & Aged Care along with Christine Bourke who explained how best to care for PARO.
Thanks to Margie, Di and Glenda and all involved for running another great conference.
And to Christine and Tony as well for being such great PARO Ambassadors!
