Abstract: The cognitive deficiencies are the spectrum of deficiencies related to the reduction of brain cognitive capability. They mainly affect decision-making, reasoning, planning and solving capabilities of daily activities. The consequence is cognitively impaired people become dependent by families, caregivers or Health Institutes. Not-intrusive information technology applications can be applied onto augment the house of mild cognitive impaired people to maintain their autonomy and facilitate their daily activities. At the same time, the applications combat the deficiency effects and are a good mean to promote self-esteem and increase the independent time living at home. In this paper, we propose an approach to use everyday objects as input and output devices for a processing system supporting people affected by mild cognitive deficiencies in successfully complete activities of daily living.
