IMHope’s mission is to create opportunities for older adults to engage in a meaningful way with their community. We support long-term care homes, retirement homes, families, and other communities as they realize potential, value and assets that every member can contribute, independent of age. IMHope uses music in the context of intergenerational interactions to accomplish these outcomes.

With expertise in neuroscience of music, community research, and recreation therapy, we approach our work from an evidence-based framework and are actively contributing to the research literature through our own studies.
