The care of the elderly is complex, with multiple agencies and individuals involved. We propose a new way of developing an ontology to reflect these aspects within a real-time home monitoring system so that it captures real-life circumstances and interactions. Our new methodology incorporates iterative and evaluative stages to ensure the ontology captures implementable interactions and concepts. We have applied it to the iCarer project which was developed to assist informal carers with the activities of daily care for the elderly.
