Companion dolls: A by-product of aging in Korea

With the Korean population gradually aging, more and more older adults are now living alone. This phenomenon has led to a rise in companion dolls. Usually, the dolls can say a few words to the elderly, such as reminding them that it's time to take their medication, and if the doll goes 12 hours without being moved, it will automatically alert the relevant authorities. Although the suicide rate for the elderly has come down, the real problem has not been addressed. And the low birth rate is still a problem the Korean government is having trouble solving.
