Why was Stevie created?

Labor Shortage

The senior living industry (in the US alone) will need to fill roles for 1.4 million workers between now and 2025.

Social Isolation

Loneliness and social isolation are serious public health problems. These conditions cost the US government $7 billion annually, and cost Medicare more each year than arthritis.

Dementia

The average cost of dementia care over 5 years is $287,038 per patient, compared to $175,136 for heart disease and $173,383 for cancer.

Stevie is here to help.

Stevie is the world's most advanced social robot. He has been designed to live and work in retirement communities, augmenting rather than replacing the role of carers, freeing them up to focus more on person-centric tasks and so improving care outcomes for residents.

He has been around the world, being put through his paces in beta pilots all the way from Ireland and the UK, to Italy and the US, constantly learning and improving with help from everyone he's been in contact with.

You may have seen him on the cover of Time Magazine!

The feedback was brilliant. We had some who were a little apprehensive at the start and then became more interested, but most people fell for him straight away. We even had people cheering when Stevie would come into a room.

Jennifer Jenkins

Manager @ Cornwall Day Centre

Often there is an assumption that older people and technology don’t mix, but the response to Stevie from the older people we work with shows that this is simply not the case. We hope that innovative solutions like those provided by Stevie and also by ourselves in ALONE through our BConnect technology will be utilised to ensure older people across the country can access the best supports available.
