Healthcare : Robotic Style.......

How does a society which has a very high proportion of elderly citizens, is very insular (not willing to accept new immigrants into its fold) plan to deal with the issues of care of the elderly in the long term future ?
The country is Japan and the solution is Robots.......yes ..... Robots helping with elderly care.
Is that the way we are headed in the US too ? .....maybe.... either more citizens agree to work in this area or more immigrants be allowed in to do this work...... if the answer to both is no then the answer is Robots....talk about cold, impersonal care !!
