When you pick up TIME Magazine’s November 4, 2019 edition, you will read an incredible story about cutting-edge technology and healthy aging research being led by those who served to benefit all Americans.
The Army Distaff Foundation’s Knollwood Military Life Plan Community in Washington, DC is the primary global test site for the development and deployment of what promises to be the world’s most advanced social robot. In partnership with an internationally-renowned robotics team from Trinity College Dublin, the Army Distaff Foundation is working to develop, test, and apply at Knollwood a socially assistive robot with the potential to transform care delivery and social engagement opportunities for similar communities across the globe.
TIME Magazine saw fit to write an exclusive cover story on this trail-blazing research. I encourage you to read the full story here.
Knollwood is a non-profit community for people age 62+, a mixture of officers of the U.S. uniformed services and their eligible family, for whom the community was founded, non-government non-military people with strong connections to the metro DC area, as well as high-level federal officials from various agencies. Independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing, and memory care services are offered at Knollwood. Knollwood is owned and operated by ADF, a 501(c)3 established in 1959 to provide housing, health, and wellness services to mature adults who have served our nation. Knollwood provides a compassionate boutique community with exceptional wellness and purposeful living. Adjacent to Rock Creek Park and minutes from fine dining, cultural attractions, and the nation’s premier medical centers, the upper northwest Washington, D.C. location is unbeatable. Residents enjoy vibrant community living with inviting, modern apartment homes, and robust wellness programs to suit all interests.
