Partial questions are: ?Did this service fulfill its purpose during its practical using? Which purposes use the seniors this service to? Are the seniors happy with the technical equipment? Are the seniors happy with the Emergency care dispatching personnel?? Next, the methodical procedure of the research follows. The research work itself ran in two phases. In the first phase, the pre-research was conducted and after that, the research itself followed. For research of the work, a strategy of qualitative research was used. The method also consists of description of the research tool and group. The data were collected via method of asking and semi-structured interviews. For partial analysis of the data, the cluster method was used. Whole interview was recorded and then rewritten. Consecutively, the interview was evaluated via the cluster method ? common and different characteristics. The results were texturized and presented according to the partial research questions. We can answer the main research question ?Did the service fulfilled expectations of the seniors? positively. As my results say, the Emergency care service, run by the civic organization ŽIVOT 90 (Life 90) ? Jihlava, meets its goal, which is to increase the quality of life of the seniors. This is enabled by active and meaningful living in own house as long as possible and it helps the seniors to live their ?autumn of the life? with dignity. This abstract should extend the knowledge about the Emergency care service and inform about its using in practice. ?
