Artificial intelligence (AI) is being used to address these challenges, with studies focusing on socially assistive robots, humanoid robots, and robotic pets in elderly care.

This review aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the roles of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies in elderly healthcare by identifying the potential benefits and challenges in geriatric healthcare services. AI technologies can potentially improve care and health outcomes for older adults, promote healthy aging, and alleviate the burden on the healthcare system. Moreover, AI systems can assist healthcare providers in assessing potential drug interactions, identifying medication errors, and optimizing medication regimens to minimize side effects and enhance overall patient safety. In addition, AI-supported robots can provide caregivers personalized and efficient care while providing rehabilitation and mobility support for the elderly. Collaboration between healthcare professionals and artificial intelligence holds significant potential to facilitate more effective delivery of care, improve patient outcomes, and optimize health resources for the increasingly aging population.
