In the recent years, the number of the elderly living with chronic diseases (e.g., high blood pressure, diabetes, etc.) is continuously growing, potentially affecting their independence. Therefore, many efforts have been given in AAL applications for supporting the monitoring activities and, particularly, focusing to the issue of gathering continuous information at home, standardizing formats, extracting further information from raw sensors data using different techniques to reconstruct a context. One aspect that is rather important but less developed in current investigation is the design of personalized end-to-end services for classes of users of such technology being them either primary user (old people) or secondary users (medical doctors, caregiver, relatives).
