    In an aging population, the demand for nurse workers increases to care for elders. Helping nurse workers make their work more efficient, will help increase elders quality of life, as the nurses can focus their efforts on care activities instead of other activities such as documentation.
    Activity Recognition can be used for this goal. If we can recognize what activity a nurse is engaged in, we can partially automate documentation process to reduce time spent on this task, monitor care plan compliance to assure that all care activities have been done for each elder, among others.
