The older we get the greater the demands we will make on technology. At the same time, many older people are suspicious or even fearful of this technology. Photography then mostly hides behind a nostalgic

winner of the Photo Academy Awards 2010, prefers to look to the future. Because the question is not if health care robots will play a role in the future care of the elderly. They will. But how? Will they take over
routine tasks so that nursing staff has more time for warm human attention? Or will they be employed by
efficiency-focused managers as a cost-cutting tool that will increasingly replace humans in health care?
