    We explore and exemplify the application in the Elder Care context of the ability to perform Intention Recognition and of wielding Evolution Prospection methods. This is achieved by means of an articulate use of Causal Bayes Nets (for heuristically gauging probable general intentions), combined with specific generation of plans involving preferences (for checking which of such intentions are plausibly being carried out in the specific situation at hand). The overall approach is formulated within a coherent and general logic programming framework and implemented system. The paper recaps required background and illustrates the approach via an extended application example.
