This paper describes an ICT platform aiming to support the well-being of frail elderly people and facilitate them to stay longer and more healthily in their own home. Its principal characteristic is the combination of Telehealth and Telecare monitoring in a unified way, allowing the simultaneous health, mental and psychological status evaluation of an elderly person. For this purpose the platform enables the deployment of services to follow-up the patient's health status based on a set of monitored parameters per disease, to track the suitability of the in-house environmental conditions and finally to profile user's habits and diagnose deviations from their usual activities.
