Many countries face an ever-growing need to supply constant care and support for their disabled and elderly populations. In this paper, we've developed geriatric ambient intelligence, an intelligent environment that integrates multiagent systems, mobile devices, RFID, and Wi-Fi technologies to facilitate management and control of geriatric residences. At GerAmi's core is the geriatric agent (GerAg), a deliberative agent that incorporates a case-based planning (CBP) mechanism to optimize work schedules and provide up-to-date patient and facility data. We've successfully implemented a system prototype at a care facility for Alzheimer patients.
