The problem of providing effective and appropriate healthcare to elderly and disable people home has been increasingly talked around. Information and communication technology (ICT) is believed to enable home healthcare management to mitigate some problems. This paper is to contribute IoT (Internet of things) architecture to achieve connectivity with the patient, sensors and everything around it. A four-level model including ‘personal-family-community-hospital’ is constructed in order to provide complete and intelligent health management services to elderly home, which provides sustainable healthcare service for elderly people. This new solution makes both the elderly life easier and the healthcare process more effective.
