The Residual Long Short Term Memory (LSTM) deep learning approach is attracting attension of many researchers due to its efficiency when trained on high dimensional datasets. Nowadays, Human Activity Recognition (HAR) has come with enormous challenges that have to be addressed. In addressing such a problem, one can think of developing an application that can help the elderly people as an assistant when it works in collaboration with other timely technologies such as wearable devices with the

The dataset comes with its own challenge such as imbalanced classes. In this work, we propose to apply different machine learning techniques to address the specified problems and the method is validated on a standard dataset. To validate the proposed method, we evaluated using different standard metrics such as classification accuracy, precision, recall, f1-score, and Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) curve. The proposed method achieves an Area Under Curve (AUC) of 100\%, 97.66\% of accuracy, 91.59\% precision,  93.75\% of recall and 92.66\% of F1-score respectively.
