Robots help elderly in nursing home

Elderly people may forget things, but robots never do.

In the Hangzhou City Social Welfare Center in East China's Zhejiang province, five robots remind 1,300 seniors when to take their medicines.

"The average age of these seniors is more than 84," Zhao Huming, deputy-director of the center, tells Xinhua.

"They often forget to take their medicines, or they take more than what is prescribed."
