Implementing a GPS-based localization service for people with cognitive impairment

Our group has conducted a qualitative study of implementing a GPS-based localization service for people with cognitive impairment. The report, written in Norwegian, is a case study describing in detail how a large municipality in Norway is introducing the service in its health and welfare service portfolio. We discuss findings from all the steps in the service, from early screening of users, to allocation decisions, to daily usage.
