Different studies have shown the benefits of a cooperative activities programme for the elderly. Members of a group with similar abilities or disabilities are often encouraged by having the opportunity to share their experiences, knowledge, or opinions. Nevertheless, when caregivers try to plan specific cooperative activities, different aspects, as the individual needs of each person, should be taken into account, which notably increases the complexity of that planification. This paper proposes a computer-based support tool for recreational therapists which facilitates the management task of grouping elderly people into cooperative groups for existing activities. To do this, an iterative learning process is proposed allowing the formation of proper distributions of elderly people into activities.
