Stress management is related to improved senior well-being and health. The purpose of this work is to identify individual characteristics that suggest the existence of stress and associate these characteristics with features extracted from biometric signals. For identifying these characteristics, on the one hand emotional/psychological measurements are collected using specific questionnaires and on the other hand features are extracted from biosignals collected using wireless sensors. The results of a pilot study with the participation of 12 seniors (mean age 59.7 ±5.8) are reported. Our results indicate that electrodermal activity and heart rate variability features are valid stress indicators for seniors.
