This paper presents the physical and mental changes related to the aging process and the limitations it presents for the elderly. Chronic diseases also limit function and ability to be independent. This limitation results in social isolation with psychological alterations including dementia. Technological interventions are a promising approach for minimizing these limitations. Technologies are also being developed to monitor elders and provide information to caregivers and health care providers. Automated living assistance systems promote elderly individuals’ ability to "age in place".
