Ambient Assistive Living (AAL) aims to improve the quality of life of the population by using different technologies to assist people with special needs. It is mainly recognized as a solution to the current population aging phenomenon that is happening all over the world. As a result, many research projects destined to support the heath care of the population have been conducted. However, the need of more studies, guidelines, methods and processes, in both developed and under development countries, as Brazil, is clear. The objective of this scientific initiation project is to establish a software architecture for a Healthcare Supportive Home (HSH) System, a specific sub-domain of AAL to assist patients with Diabetes Mellitus disease, supporting them with home care methods for continuous monitoring of heath conditions and becoming their daily life more comfortable and independent. For this, this project will be based on a reference architecture being proposed in a PhD project entitled "A Reference Architecture for Healthcare Supportive Home Systems" that is supported by FAPESP (Grants: 2013/20317-9 and 2015/1919-2). As results, we intend to contribute to evaluate the feasibility of using this reference architecture and mainly contribute to the direction of designing a HSH system specifically destined to Diabetes Mellitus Condition.
