The robots are programmed to "remember" medication schedules for the seniors and nursing home workers. They send messages to remind the seniors when it is time to take the pills.

"They make our work a lot easier," says Zhao.

"Robots can also help save on human resources and improve service in the senior care sector," Zhao adds.

"Both elderly people and nursing home workers can benefit."
