A Swedish version of I-HOPE : -a study of how people 65 years and older, living in ordinary homes in Sweden, interpret the activity cards in the assessment instrument I-HOPE (English)
Abstract [en]

I–HOPE is an instrument that can be used to examine person–environment fit in the home. The instrument is developed in the United States and involves forty-four activity cards that are to be sorted by the client to address the activities that are problematic in his/her everyday life. The purpose of this study was to examine if the activity cards would fit in a Swedish context, and if other activities needed to be added, to match every day activities of people, 65 years and older, living in ordinary homes in Sweden. A survey was distributed to twenty-one participants age 65 and older. This survey was conducted in a project with Luleå University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg, that aims to adapt I-HOPE to be applicable in Sweden. Results show that nineteen of the forty-four activity cards were identified by all the participants. Further, eighteen more cards were identified by the majority of the participants. The seven activity cards that were not identified, or were done in a different way than what the picture showed, contained multiple activities that were categorized into one, compared to the ones that were identified. Additionally, the participants identified two more activities, that they felt, the instrument lacked. These results conclude that I-HOPE contains some valid activities, but needs to be adapted further, to fit a Swedish context, and to work as an occupational instrument for elders, ageing in place.
