It is evident that the population will grow irrevocably older at an increasing speed. The cost of taking care of senior citizens will increase rapidly, as well, at the same time. A partial solution to this matter is to bring technology to help Senior citizens to manage their daily lives themselves. Before that is possible we need to innovate and design new services and devices that are tailored for this particular purpose. And most of all they must be made available and easily usable by Senior citizens. This paper shortly introduces the Assisted Living system that has been originally innovated and designed with the needs of senior citizen first in mind and the technology selection comes secondly to enable these strongly demanded new services.
