Marta had been a thriving participant, actively engaging in a myriad of activities until the COVID-19 pandemic caused centers to close for quarantine. The closures of centers have disproportionately affected seniors and their caregivers due to the extended period of isolation. With assistance from Easterseals South Florida, Martha received a Robotic Pet from The Florida Department of Elder Affairs to provide companionship. There is a reason we call dog a man’s best friend. The Robotic Pets respond to motion, touch, and sound. Now, this interactive pet is Martha’s companion and helps her to combat feelings of isolation and depression by improving her mood and quality of life.
