Tracking the health of a person and proper medication improves their life time. Studies suggest the most of the deaths of the elderly people have occurred during the night when the person is asleep. A Caretaker cannot assist a person all the time. This work proposes a personal assistant for an elderly people or a patient. The Personal assistants can provide in-home respite care, allowing family members or other caretakers to take a temporary break. The main objective of this work is to help seniors maintain their quality of life at home and to keep them living their lives their way, as well as to lighten the load of full-time or family caretaker. This paper proposes an affordable personal assistance device for health monitoring of elderly people using different sensors which can measure pulse rate, position of elderly. Therefore the doctor can identify the abnormal values easily and can attend the patient if the device is used in the hospital. Proper intake of medicine at correct time is indicated by the display on OLED screen and an alert is produced by buzzer.
