State agencies are working with local Offices for the Aging to deliver voice-operated smart technology to hundreds of older adults.

Intuition robotics launched ElliQ, a companion robot to help the elderly live happier and independently while motivating them to live healthier lives.

The New York State Office for the Aging is helping bring the technology to New York while helping the more than 4.6 million older adults live independently.

NYSOFA received nearly $3 million from the state budget to pioneer initiatives like this to combat social isolation.
