Most elderly people prefer to live independent in their own homes for as long as possible. Needed support is delivered by someone else and/or via the use of technology. The current paper describes how so called conversational agents can be designed to provide a virtual support and help in daily life activities of the older adults. The paper describes the concept and the idea of an virtual support partner and the concrete realization of a virtual support partner in the EU funded Miraculous-Life project. It describes the deployment setup, the components as well as the architecture and gives some conclusion and lessons learned.
