Susan Garelick, age 66, lives at home and has felt depressed ever since she had to give up her three cats, Princess, Angel, and Baby because she could no longer care for them. They were her family and without them, she felt alone and lonely.
RiverSpring Health Plans, her managed long-term care plan, had a creative solution…a robotic cat. They hand delivered a robotic cat, and it has changed her life. While it cannot replace a live animal, it is the next best thing, and for Susan, it has provided companionship and joy. Patty Hron, Vice President, Member Services at RiverSpring Health Plans joins Michelle Fern this week to talk about this innovative solution to bring comfort, companionship and fun to elder loved ones.
