At first, it might seem counter intuitive. That the addition of robots to physical level care could increase the emotional level of care, too. But with advances in robotics, is it possible that robots could be designed to assist with many of the important physical tasks that a dying person needs in a respectful, personable, and caring way - with the goal being exactly not to replace the human touch, but rather, allow human caregivers to be present more wholly and emotionally with those they care for. The physical tasks can be exhausting. Robots could be a way to relieve the human caregiver of such tasks and free them more to do what humans are truly designed to do - offer emotional contact. Love. Attentiveness. A human caregiver's skills and training are still absolutely necessary. But is it possible that some of the burden of the ongoing and demanding, crucial tasks of the physical can be transferred to a robot? With evolving voice technology, the cared for person can have a level of control in interacting with it, with the goal of feeling less helpless. Perhaps even develop a rapport. And now, the human caregiver can be more fully focused on the incredibly important emotional support. In addition, given the extraordinary costs of end of life care, it's possible robots taking on such a role can also reduce the financial burdens faced in providing complete physical and emotional care for a person. So a wider range of people could have this kind of comprehensive care. Because it would come within what they could financially bear.
