Aging deteriorates cognitive and physical abilities. Besides this, social activities decline in older ages. However, it is possible to slow down the deterioration of these abilities and to prolong the time elders live independently at their homes by proper training plan exercises. Existing tools offer very limited support as their design does not take into account elders as target users and the motivational factors that following training plans poses on them. In this paper we present a unified platform that hosts training games and physical exercises and leverage them with social, motivational and monitoring instruments.
