Elderly residents who require personalized attention specific to their age-related needs generally inhabit rural areas. Users who are not of a very advanced age require only basic assistance, most commonly simple reminders to avoid forgetting or distractions. This article proposes the concept of a Smart City, which focuses on rural areas and incorporates a system to monitor and assist people of an advanced age who require a type of support which is usually complicated to provide in areas located far from urban centers. The proposed system incorporates WiFi networks, beacons, set topboxes and virtual agent organizations, and uses applications, interactive TV programs and a Wi-Fi based tracking system to monitor patients.
