Humans are getting permanently older. Age-related disabilities and diseases increase dramatically with growing age, and often force the respective persons to continue their life in nursing homes. Can ambient-intelligent technology help to extend a self-conducted life of elderly people in their own homes? This article attempts to provide answers to this question. We present the concept of an AmI-based assistance system which detects actual emergencies and tries to avoid their occurrence.
