Advances in healthcare have led to longer life expectancy and an aging population. The cost of caring for the elderly is rising progressively and threatens the economic well-being of many nations around the world. Instead of professional nursing facilities, many elderly people prefer living independently in their own homes. To enable the aging to remain active, this research explores the roles of technology in improving their quality of life while reducing the cost of healthcare to the elderly population. In particular, we propose a multi-agent service framework, called Context-Aware Service Integration System (CASIS), to integrate applications and services. This paper demonstrates several context-aware service scenarios these have been developed on the proposed framework to demonstrate how context technologies and mobile web services can help enhance the quality of care for an elder's daily life.
