Many families have experienced difficulties, when a relative has been hospitalized for some reason or suffers from a chronic condition, such as the Alzheimer's disease. In case of treatment at home, these patients should be constantly monitored. Nevertheless, around-the-clock monitoring may not always be possible. The reasons may be both economical and social, since families may not afford external help and sometimes patients do not trust outsiders. In this paper, we present an application for the monitoring and the protection of these patients, without the need of constant human helper. The use of a mobile telephone running a custom application and is connected to various biometric sensors will aid to achieve this goal.
