Apart from restaurants the lack of labor in the world also plagues nursing homes and social robots are one
solution. In a nursing home in the state of Minnesota, Pepper, a social robot, helps patients suffering from
dementia to keep them active – Pepper talks to them and even dances with the patients.

Pepper is equipped with technology that helps to boost patients memory by showing them pictures and videos
of them from the past. According to Peppers developer they use the robot to take their patients back in
time because disease erased their valuable memories.
