Context-aware technologies allow Ambient Assisted Living systems and applications to automatically obtain information from users and their environment in a distributed and ubiquitous way. One of the most important technologies used to provide context-awareness to a system is Wireless Sensor Networks. This paper describes last improvements made on ALZ-MAS, an Ambient Intelligence based multi-agent system aimed at enhancing the assistance and healthcare for Alzheimer patients. In this sense, a new ZigBee platform is used to improve ALZ-MAS. This platform provides the system with new telemonitoring and locating engines that facilitate the integration of context-awareness into it.
