Spanish population over 65 years old will soon be an important fraction. These data show the need for some helping technologies that make possible to deal with this scenario. This research aims to explore Ambient Intelligence and Semantic Web technologies to allow personal health monitoring and user interactions at home as transparent as possible. To achieve this goal a Multi-Agent System is proposed, focusing on knowledge representation. The ontology has been defined according to current

Furthermore, the defined language supports the semantic reasoning process for agent"s real time decision making according to changing circumstances. This proposal can be understood as a step forward patient experience, in the sense of how environment information and user's behaviors are taken into account to provide and manage suitable services.
