Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) can occur while a person is getting old and it is associated with more serious cognitive deteriorations than the normal ageing-related ones. As it may involve a significant decrease in the quality of life, health status and independence of the elderly, the early diagnosis and a personalized assistance become crucial in this ageing worldwide context. Current and emerging technologies provide the needed support for implementing appropriate new models of healthcare delivery. This paper highlights how RO-SmartAgeing system, which aims to provide customized monitoring and assistance for an elderly in his home, is designed for addressing a particular health condition as MIC. The associated smart environment is presented, together with the data flow chart and architecture, with an emphasis on MIC approach.
