In the context of new emerging infectious diseases, it is more secure for old patients to be confined to their homes while still having medical assistance. Most existing facilities use Radio Frequency (RF) devices to monitor and measure vital signs of a patient and send them to appropriate medical services. But this technology can have bad side effects on patient's health, especially those who have already chronic diseases. We propose an approach that uses only Light Fidelity (LiFi) technology. Our goal is to use the information about the position of the patient to track him/her so that rapid intervention can be made in critical situations. Initial experiments conducted on our system show that the patient can be tracked with precision. The real-time status of the person being monitored is reported to medical services so that he/she can be quickly rescued when needed.
