Role of robotics in autism research
Kerstin Dautenhahn & Maha Salem
Childcare and senior care divided but treated as overlapping topics.

Merges with child education robotics
What are the existing best practices or guidelines with regards to care robotics and ethics?
ISO standard for personal care non-medical robots: 13482 (2014)
None other established and practiced that I know of. Discussions have been brought up before (see Riek's paper on Ethical Principles for HRI practitioners) as individual academic papers. See also the mendeley
Interestingly, IEEE Global Initiative isn't covering this, but we have a "Well-being" committee that probably overlaps. Briefly discussed in the Affective Computing committee at the initiative.
Anything important that I have not asked?
Medical robotics & care robotics has a divide. Medical ethics and care robot ethics also has a divide.
I'm not up to date on care robotics domain as of 2015
