Design: This was a methodological study. Methods: The study sample enrolled 176 older adults. The study carried out preliminary psychometric analyses. Findings: Item-level content validity index ranged between 0.87 to 1.0, and the index of content validity was 0.98. The Cronbach’s α for the total scale was 0.84. Conclusion: The cross-cultural adaptation of SC-HI has been realized successfully in Turkish. Clinical Evidence: Health care providers may utilize the scale to evaluate “older individuals” hypertension self-care abilities.
