Abstract

The virtual community concept when supported by adequate information and communications technology (ICT) and organisational infrastructures, represents a very promising approach for a new philosophy in elderly care and active aging. A mobile agents-based approach to implementing services to support a Time Bank virtual community in elderly care is described and a prototype system developed in the context of the TeleCARE project is presented.
