Abstract: Elderly people are increasingly becoming numerous all over the world. They have particular needs that must be considered, especially those related to health and wellbeing. In Brazil, a strategy to improve the health assistance directed to elderly is the investment in Continuing Health Education (CHE) through e-Learning. This paper aims to present a tool to be used in CHE: the SAITE Store. It is a virtual store in form of application that collects e-books targeted to various topics in health field, including elderly health. SAITE Store emerges as an innovative manner to engage professionals in CHE by combining knowledge and technology and by offering an opportunity of study online and offline, through any type of mobile device. So far, the store contains 11 applications in elderly health, which will be presented in this paper, but this number might be larger in a short period, since the creation is continuous.
