Geriatric Ambient Intelligence is an agent-based intelligent environment that facilitates healthcare in geriatric residences. GerAmi integrates multiagent systems with RFID, Wi-Fi technologies, and handheld devices. Its core is the geriatric agent (GerAg), an autonomous deliberative case-based agent that dynamically plans nurses' work schedules, maintains standard working reports about nurse activities, and guarantees that patients receive appropriate care. GerAgs operate in wireless devices and are integrated with complementary agents into the Geriatric Residence Multiagent System architecture. A system prototype was successfully implemented at the Alzheimer Santísima Trinidad Residence in Salamanca, Spain.
