We present the first phase of a project for monitoring elderly people suffering from dementia in the dasiareal lifepsila environment of an dasiaassisted livingpsila flat associated with a nursing home. Based on monitoring requirements derived in discussions with the nursing staff the system consists of a UBISENSE location system for monitoring location, a sound-system for monitoring vocal interaction, and the TECO dasiaParticlespsila sensor nodes mounted under the beds for sleep monitoring. In this paper we introduce the background and environment of the project, describe the requirements and the system and present some initial data collected in the first deployment period.
