On 5th November, the EU-funded Homes4Life (H4L) project organised an interactive webinar where relevant stakeholders could provide their views and ask questions about the Homes4Life certification scheme, which was presented in detail by Hervé Duret and Christophe Gérard of Certivéa – one of the H4L partners and a certification body, based in France.
The input was collected on the basis of a series of questions about the H4L certification scheme ranging from the validity of the certificate to the weighting of the categories which impacts the overall score of a home’s age-friendliness. The gathered input will ultimately serve to further improve the Homes4Life certification scheme.
Eurocarers is a partner in the EU-funded Homes4Life project that aims to develop a European certification scheme for age-friendly housing, which has now in its first version, been tested in 10 pilot sites across Europe.
With a rapidly ageing population and an ordinary housing stock that is not fit-for-purpose nor adapted for independent living, the Homes4Life project aims to develop a practical tool that can boost and incentivise key housing stakeholders to adapt the existing mainstream housing for true ageing-in-place.
