As a variety of different care robots are introduced to older people, the ethics on their use and design becomes an important issue. In this study, we discussed the potential tensions that care robots may bring to caregivers in residential aged care facilities, and how to ethically design care robots to ensure good care. We argue that given the specific context of care works, care robots should be designed as handy tools rather than high intelligent social entities.
