Services offered to the Elderly
The main aim is to provide the elderly with the
appropriate services, at the most suitable time, in the right place,
in the most effective manner. This will be achieved through the use of wireless/mobile technologies,
personalization, context and location-based management, as well as daily support and monitoring.
With the purpose of identifying the real user needs and requirements various issues
will be addressed. These are not limited to activities of daily living but expand to
cover levels of socialization and participation in the community, physical conditions
(like motion) and levels of dependence on social care services.In the context of this project, four domains of
activity are considered:

positively related to well being in elderly individuals. The personal
context of the elderly will be matched with the context of his
environment to trigger local services that are tune to provide a
dynamically created virtual collaborative care/socializing team around
him and the provision of socialization and care at any time in an
essential for general independence and social integration and ensures
good health and quality of life. It preserves not only the physical
condition but also stimulates mental health by enabling interaction
with the external environment.
Care and Wellness
In the context of social care elderly
people often need help and support in their daily life activities.
Some examples could be assistance with shopping, planning of personal
or medical related appointments, remainder of important events etc.
Information and Learning

events and current news can be an effective solution to maintain the
connection of the elderly with their society. They can be supported in
finding and carrying out work, establishing and maintaining contacts
with other people, and, in general, can be helped in spending the day.
