Advancing safety and independence for older adults through home modifications and research

We aim to help older adults stay active at home and in the community. To this end, we developed the In-Home Occupational Therapy Performance Evaluation (I-HOPE), to measure clients’ in‐home activity performance and changes in person‐environment fit before and after home modification interventions, and the Home Hazard Removal Program (HARP), a home modification intervention for fall prevention.
