The purpose of this article is to evaluate the possibility of introducing the Assistive Technology for elderly persons at home in order to provide intermediate care as the range of services aimed at facilitating the transfer from hospital, and the transition from a situation of dependency on the medical staff to a situation of functional independence. Improvements in this area would allow an approach focused on the user and reduce the waste of economic resources. Once it achieves the objectives of strictly medical care, the discharge of patients can be anticipated. We believe that one possible solution is represented by the introduction and use of the intelligent agents for the support of the activities of daily living. We report some examples.
