Pawtucket, R.I. – July 12, 2018 – This summer, Ageless Innovation LLC will bring even more joy and companionship to older adults and their caregivers with a new version of its Companion Pet Cat. The Tuxedo Cat, with distinctive black and white markings, was created in response to popular demand from consumers for a cat that more closely resembles real ones they’ve known and loved. The unique line of interactive Joy for All Companion Pet Cats – designed to stimulate and foster meaningful connections for older adults – has received widespread accolades and awards since the brand launched in 2015.
In 2018, a group of former Hasbro employees acquired the Joy for All brand and launched the new Rhode Island-based company, Ageless Innovation LLC to focus on positively impacting the quality of life of older adults through unique products that inspire fun, joy, and play. The company’s CEO Ted Fischer, a former Vice President of Business Development for Hasbro, oversaw the original launch of the Joy for All Companion Pet line; the current Ageless Innovation team members also spearheaded the innovation, design, global strategy, and launch at Hasbro.
From the realistic look and movements of the cats to the responsive purring and meows, Fischer and his team are providing older adults the joy and companionship that only pets can provide without the responsibility of caring for a real animal. The Ageless Innovation team plans to drive the business even further.
“Loneliness, social isolation, and cognitive decline are reaching epidemic levels for older adults. We are inspired every day knowing that our companion pets are having a positive impact,” Fischer said. “It never gets old hearing caregivers and family members recount the stories of seeing loved ones light up for the first time in years when they interact with our pets. There’s such a need for these products right now, and we’re committed to creating innovations to improve the lives of this amazing and growing population and their families.”
For Ageless Innovation, the new Companion Pet Tuxedo Cat is only the beginning. Fischer and team are working with partners in the healthcare, academic, and senior living industries on designing new, unique products to bolster its current lineup of Companion Pets.
