In the time of an ageing world, aging at home is both an economically and socially viable and sustainable solution which may also improve the elderly’s well-being. There are currently a few Home-based Elderly Care systems which although operational are not yet optimal in terms of efficiency and security. The paper propose a Home-based Elderly Care solution which makes use of the 5G mobile network slicing with two secure and isolated slices, namely the Health Care slice and the Smart Home slice to provide an inherent secure connection. Further, the solution includes an efficient and secure Emergency Call which ensures that the appropriate caregivers can dispatched and provide help in shorter times. A proof-of-concept implementation is described thoroughly.
