In this chapter, we describe three common scenarios of older people’s living situation in order to increase the understanding of when and how home monitoring can be used among older people at risk of worsening health. We aim at describing the different circumstances under which monitoring approaches and personal care solutions can be applied. Then, we describe relevant geriatric conditions and threats of deteriorating health and functional losses, which are considered to be of paramount need for suitable monitoring solutions. Finally, we summarize these needs in a concise list of conditions and activities that shall be automatically monitored.
