Project focuses on the implementation of ICT solutions to health and social services. This paper introduces innovation into senior care system on the city district level. Special attention is given to the use of modern technologies, particularly in the field of senior care in their home environment. Within this framework, the technologies are perceived as complementary to health care, not aiming to fully replace health care altogether. New measures must react to the requirements of both recipients and care providers. The paper contains an analysis of these requirements, attitudes and capacities of main stakeholders in the senior care system. The paper also deals with financial and legislative issues related to the introduction of innovation in such way to ensure the feasibility of the proposed solution. Results of this work are transferable to other city districts in Prague and to other municipalities in the Czech Republic as well.
