Abstract In the last decades a large number and variety of prototyped and commercial IT solutions have been dedicated to older adults with the purpose to make their activities as meaningful and diverse as possible; and to establish the environment around them as comfortable as possible. However, in most cases the requirements for the tools are derived from user surveys or are just a result of some innovative ideas of researchers and practitioners. This might be one of the reasons why the spectrum of possible IT solutions is much larger than the spectrum of actually used solutions. In this paper we propose to view IT solutions that are developed for older adults in the context, which is represented as a socio-cyber-physical system. Enterprise modeling is proposed as a means for context representation and analysis.
