The steady increase in the world’s older adult population is about to become one of the most critical social transformations of the 21st century, demanding significant adaptations of each nation’s health and social systems. Consequently, from the various needs reflected by this demographic change, SAFER-LIM emerges, a Web platform based on three axes that guarantee the correct development of each individual during his/her aging: linkage with society, interaction with his/her peers and monitoring of the state of health. From there, a virtual space is created centralized in the elderly that is shared with doctors, caregivers and family members. On the one hand, the social requirements are satisfied thanks to the addition of friends, creation of events and recommendation of places, promoting the enhancement of spaces and places destined for the senescent. On the other hand, with respect to the state of health, has designed a network of e-Health sensors for doctors that process and record measurements on biological variables of each elderly, following a model based on user profiles. Finally, in general, caregivers or relatives can see in real time the geographic location of the older adult and receive alerts about the change of routes or the abandonment of safe areas (geo-fences). The results obtained on the deployment of SAFER-LIM in an elderly community show positive impressions about its use.
