« « SAM IS A QUIET AND COMFORTING COMPANION. » »
In Toulouse, Deborah Pares’ family has two PRESENCE+Home users to manage the robot, which was setup in the house of Pierrette, Deborah’s grandmother.
“The robot is complementary to real visits, which have absolutely not diminished since my mother and I use SAM. Most of the time, when I am gone, I make the call and I drive SAM to the living-room, where I usually find my grandma in her chair. Even away, the caregiver feels closer to the dependent person… after all, don’t we virtually walk around the place?! The robot can be activated just to have a nice chat, but also in case of an emergency. It comforts everyone, eventually.”
