Nursing home culture change movement advocates for care that is less hospital-like, and more patient-centered. Despite being a step towards the good direction in providing a proper service for elderly people, considering their well-being is not easy due to a number of factors as: specific treatments with a high price; the number of involved stakeholders (e.g. patient, doctors, relatives, nursing home clerks, funding organisations, etc); or the difficulties to gather an accurate measure for the patients well-being. In current position paper we devise some potential challenges that arise in this context and we provide our insights on potential techniques to solve them by means of a framework to automate the management of well-being goals in nursing homes.
