The Masonic Homes is among the first care providers that will deploy robot fleets to help people live more independently.
CALABASAS, CA (November 3, 2022) Labrador Systems today announced the first reservations for the initial production of its assistive robots from several leading organizations in home care and senior living. First announced in January at CES 2022, the award-winning Labrador® Retriever personal robot empowers people to live more independently and extends the impact of caregivers. The assistive robot lightens the load of daily activities by physically bringing essential items within reach. Labrador will offer home care and senior living organizations a professional grade version of the robot, the “Retriever Pro,” with additional features to help caregivers and staff manage client care.
Labrador will make the Retriever Pro available as a service, creating fleets of robots for care providers to deploy to support individuals in a variety of settings. Organizations set to receive the first deliveries of the Retriever Pro include: On Lok PACE, Nationwide Insurance, Masonic Homes of California, Western Homes Communities, Eskaton, The Perfect Companion, Presbyterian Villages of Michigan, University of Michigan Flint, and Graceworks Lutheran Services.
Labrador’s pilots included tests and site visits with senior living communities, such as Masonic Homes of California, established in 1898.
“Our on-campus test of Labrador robots created quite an impression, generating excitement among our community,” said James MacRae, Innovation Project Manager for the Masonic Homes of California in Union City. “We are eager to deploy our own fleet of Labrador Retriever Pros because it supports our mission to provide best-in-class experiences for our residents while allowing our caregivers to deliver high-touch personal care.”
