The paper aims to develop an application that will enhance the life of the patients who are all affected by Alzheimer's disease. Possible ways to reduce the cost of treatment, provide adequate medical care and monitoring activities of these patients can be achieved using modern technology. IoT, cloud computing, etc., plays a vital role in healthcare and helps to improve the available functionalities by using sensors or actuators. The application consists of various modules such as GPS for movement tracking, regular monitoring of patient's health and alert system to send alert whenever abnormalities happen. The goal of this application is to focus on Alzheimer's patients to lead an independent life and to improve their lifestyle.
