Seoul gov't to run pilot project for tracking elderly with dementia
By Lee Haye-ah
SEOUL, Sept. 1 (Yonhap) -- The Seoul government said Wednesday it has launched a pilot project to help locate senior citizens suffering from dementia.

The Seoul Metropolitan Government has partnered up with a local company to provide portable GPS tracking devices to 250 senior citizens free of charge during the 5-month test period, it said. Seniors under the care of families whose incomes are less than the monthly average for a single household are given priority.
