We aim to enhance the quality of life of elderly and people with mild cognitive disabilities through technology. This includes increasing their autonomy, enhancing their security, and preventing isolation by staying socially connected. One way to do so is enabling them a life in their familiar surroundings as long as possible. We present the successful integration of several systems comprising the intelligent medicament blister and the task-based calendar. The intelligent medicament blister helps to increase a patient's compliance and the task-based calendar assists people with cognitive disabilities in their activities of daily living like cooking tea. Furthermore, we present the technical infrastructure such as the universal control hub or the digital product memory. Our long term vision is to promote an accessible intelligent environment based on open standards and architectures and innovative solutions where everyone can continue to play a role in society.
