Abstract—Recently, the aging society is facing with the rapid increase of chronic disease. Chronic diseases can have a profound impact on the health and quality of life of the elderly, not to mention the financial burden that is often associated with long-term illness. The major 3 well known chronic diseases for the elderly are Depression, Diabetes and Dementia (3Ds). Despite the advanced medical technology, chronic diseases have not comprehensively managed yet. In this paper, we have developed smart phone based U-health care application (App) for healthcare of the elderly with chronic diseases, such as 3Ds. The suggested App for chronic diseases composes Depression check, Diabetes detection and Dementia screening using smart-phone, urine test and bionic sensors. The propose App can not only prescribe proper activity to control the chronic diseases but also it can monitor physical activity of the elderly in everyday life.
