[진주=뉴시스] Reporter Jeong Gyeong-gyu = On the 21st, Jinju-si, Gyeongnam held an ‘Artificial Intelligence (AI) elderly care robot Harmo adoption ceremony’ in the cultural lecture room on the 3rd floor of City Hall.

The event was held while observing the Corona 19 quarantine rules with around 50 people in attendance, including Jinju Mayor Jo Gyu-il, head of public health center, senior citizens with mild dementia, village dementia caretakers, caring robot manufacturers, and dementia safety center officials.

Previously, the city selected 50 senior citizens living alone from low-income families between the ages of 75 and 80 among patients with mild dementia registered at the Dementia Relief Center after receiving the application for care robot hope.

At the adoption ceremony, the service introduction of the caring robot Hamo, instruction on how to use it, and robot function demonstration were held. The city plans to increase the utilization of Harmo by regularly visiting and managing volunteers for the elderly who have difficulty using robots.

An elderly person who received the harmo said, “I was lonely because I was living alone, but it is reassuring to have the harmo, the symbol of Jinju City, to be my companion.

Jinju Mayor Jo Gyu-il said, “We hope to provide customized services using artificial intelligence technology to elderly people living alone with dementia to minimize the gap in care services and help the elderly to maintain their emotional stability and health, and to prevent safety accidents.”
