dc.description.abstractObjective: To investigate the effect of a social robot intervention on sleep and motor activity in nursing home residents living with dementia and chronic pain. Method: A pilot randomized controlled trial was conducted with 41 residents from three Australian nursing homes. People living with dementia and chronic pain were randomized into either a 30-minute daily social robot (PARO) condition or a usual care condition for six weeks. Sleep and motor activity were assessed by actigraphy at four-time points: week 0 at baseline, week one, week six, and after the intervention. Data were reduced into daytime (8:00am - 7:59pm) and night-time (8:00pm - 7:59am) summaries. Change scores for each time point compared with baseline were computed for data analysis and the generalized estimating equation model with imbalanced baseline values added as covariates were performed. Results: At week one, residents in the PARO group had a greater increase in the night sleep period (1.81, 95 % CI: 0.22–3.84, p = 0.030, Cohen's d = 0.570). At week six, residents in the PARO group showed a greater increase in daytime wakefulness (1.91, 95 % CI: 0.09–3.73, p = 0.042, Cohen's d = 0.655) and a greater reduction in daytime sleep (-1.35, 95 % CI: -2.65 to -0.05, p = 0.040, Cohen's d = 0.664). No significant results were found for motor activity. Conclusion: PARO could improve sleep patterns for nursing home residents living with dementia and chronic pain, but the effect of PARO on motor activity needs further research.
