This paper presents a multiagent system that facilitates the performance of daily tasks for people within a context-aware environment. The paper analyzes the important aspects of context-aware computing and presents a prototype that can be applied to monitor dependent individuals in their homes. The system includes
computation elements that are integrated within a domestic environment with the goal of capturing context-related information and managing the events carried out by the patient. The services are support by the processing and reasoning out of the data received by the agents in order to offer proactive solutions to the user. The results obtained with this prototype are presented in this paper.
