Being part of the social community is for many people a crucial part of their life. Unfortunately, many of the elder generation are not able to participate due to physical condition and lack of will power. These people often suffer from loneliness and depression. In order to overcome these issues a system is being developed with its main goal to be a motivator for these people. Closely related to this is the term of primary prevention. Within an AAL living room scenario an armchair with integrated sensors monitors several vital signs and offers the possibility to perform exercises which both are displayed on a TV screen. In addition, by using a tablet the user is able to communicate with medical experts as well as social group members, relatives and friends. The acquisition of vital data in combination with elements of (virtual) social networks prevents isolation, motivates to be (more) active and supports healthy aging with a high joie de vivre.
