As our society is increasingly aging, it is urgent to develop computer aided techniques to improve the quality-of-care (QoC) and quality-of-life (QoL) of geriatric patients. In this paper, we focus on automatic human activities analysis in video surveillance recorded in complicated environments at a nursing home. This will enable the automatic exploration of the statistical patterns between patients' daily activities and their clinical diagnosis. We also discuss potential future research directions in this area. Experiment demonstrate the proposed approach is effective for human activity analysis.
