Researchers are giving special attention to innovative healthcare projects in order to reduce medical service costs and to deal with the population ageing. The Virtual e-Care was born taking those goals in mind. An intelligent and proactive system has been prototyped, supporting group decision making techniques, idea generation, argumentation and the quantification of the quality of information. In this paper it is simulated a virtual Assisted Living Environment, based in a solid agent-based architecture. Special attention is given to the monitoring system.
