Currently, several countries have become aging societies and are moving towards aged societies. This results from low birth rate and the average life expectancy increasing in these countries. The subsequent concerns are about a lack of carers to look after those elderly people. Therefore, the need of technology-driven solutions to support elderly to live independently is increasing. This research intends to develop a conceptual framework supporting personalised healthcare for seniors. The agent-based, Semantic Web, and Internet of Things technology have been integrated to monitor elderly people’s vital signs when they are at home. In case of the presence of the vital sign abnormality, the carers and physicians will be notified in order to investigate the problem and provide help immediately. The result of this research is expected to provide assisted living facility for elderly people to stay independently as long as possible in their homes and to reduce the burden of carers.
