The humans’ life has been apparently extended in the recent decades. However, the cost to maintain the aged-people health is still growing up continually. It has been the most important issue how to apply the modern technology to construct a sustainable and affordable health maintenance organization (HMO). In this paper, we propose a work which applies the Internet of things (IOT) and connects to the community monitor center to improve the healthcare quality to the aged people. The system consists of mainly the coordinator and community monitor center. This system can monitor the health status of the elderly community. Combined with the healthcare professionals, it can provide the reasonable food and exercise plan for the aged people.
