Home is where the heart is; within its walls your family grows, encounters challenges, and makes lifelong memories. Your home is your haven and you should be able to live there, comfortably, for as long as possible.

In partnership with the City of Edmonton and Age Friendly Edmonton, Home for Life™ has emerged as an initiative leading the way for life-long residential home design. Through advocacy, education, and technical leadership, Home for Life™ provides home-owners and builders with a framework for designing homes that are aesthetically ageless and will remain functional and accessible while the home-owner ages.

Invest in your family's future, build a Home for Life™.
