This paper presents an autonomous intelligent agent developed for health care in geriatric residences. The paper focuses on the construction of an autonomous agent which incorporates a model of human thinking, such as reasoning based on past experiences. The work here presented focuses in the development of the CBP internal structure. The planning mechanism has been implemented by means of a novel FYDPS neural network. The system has been tested and this paper presents the results obtained.
