I-HOPE

The In-Home Occupational Performance Evaluation (I-HOPE) targets activities performed in the home that are essential for aging in place. The purpose of the I‐HOPE is to measure the effects of an incompatibility between a person’s abilities and the environment or the “person-environment misfit” of older adults and their homes. For more information, or to purchase the assessment, see the official I-HOPE page.

The I-HOPE has successfully been used in a range of settings including home health, Veterans Affairs, private practice, inpatient rehabilitation, and non-profit community organizations. We have conducted in-person and online trainings in order to train hundreds of therapists to complete the I-HOPE in the homes of older adults.
