    Abstract

    The size of the ageing population is growing fast because people are living longer and environmental and social conditions are changing. This paper will report a study to design and develop a technological solution that helps to improve the independence and well-being of the elderly. We initially read some literature about tele-care, lifestyle monitoring systems, well-being, smart-houses, and pervasive computing; topics which are all relevant for our research project. We then started to understand the data gathered from the array of sensors collected into a database in order to present useful information to the end user through OnLine Analytical Processing (OLAP). In the second stage, we will analyse the information required to find rules, patterning sequences, which reveal hidden data and will enable us to predict changes using data mining techniques.
