Robots Help the Elderly

In Norway a shortage of help will force the country to try using robots to help care for the elderly.

Two employee groups have teamed up to see how robots and other hi-tech gadgets can be developed to help care for them.

"Technology will contribute to resolve part of the challenge with employees in the health care sector," Olav Ulleren, head of a group representing Norwegian municipalities, told Reuters. "It could also help people live longer in their own homes."

Ulleren said robots and other devices could do housework like washing clothes and dishes and cleaning the floor.
