Abstract

Society is facing big demographic changes. In 2050, it is expected that the number of elders will reach 1500 million (about 16% of the world population). As people age, they become more dependent on assistance services. Care and assistance organizations start failing, as the number of people who need help increases beyond their ability to comply. The creation of an ecosystem for Ambient Assisted Living, facilitating partnerships creation between service providers, is proposed as a strategy to improve care provision and leverage its capacity. The specification of the ecosystem is based on canonical models and verified through simulation.
