Abstract

This paper provides insights from our experiences that would guide the implementation of home- and community-based intervention studies, in particular field tests of technology in older adults with varying degrees of cognitive impairment and their informal (family) caregivers. Critical issues include recruitment in a vulnerable and frail population, intervention and protocol design, environmental and technology-specific barriers to implementation, and facilitators of success. Our experiences and recommendations should be relevant to a broad range of longitudinal field tests, particularly those with older adult populations.
