    Elderly person staying in a nursing home have heavy dementia. The role of a nursing home is not only a personal care of dairy living but also the inclusion of therapy activity for prevention of progress or improvement of dementia. The Animal-Robot Assisted Therapy (ARAT) has gotten an attention as practicable therapy activity in a nursing home. It is said that ARAT has effects, but detail effects and the detail execution method of ARAT are not obvious. In this study, we design the detail execution method of ARAT for improvement of dementia.
