Bringing Joy for All to Positively Impact 
the Lives of Older Adults and their Caregivers

Bringing comfort and happiness to the older adult population is the mission of Ageless Innovation's Joy for All Companion Pets, interactive cats and pups that replicate the look, sounds, and feel of real pets. Recent, independently funded research studies performed using the Joy for All pets are now proving that these innovations are truly having a positive impact. 

A recent study by James Madison University states, "The use of robotic companion cats enhance the well-being and quality of life of individuals with dementia living in a long-term care facility by providing companionship and interaction with their environment which helps to reduce anxiety and agitation." 

Additional published studies have focused on the positive impact of Joy for All Companion Pets in Home Care and Hospice, with hospitalized patients with Delirium, and for Alzheimer's patients. Learn more about how Ageless Innovation LLC is making a difference for older adults at this month's Boomer Summit in New Orleans on April 18th!
