Jack Long Foundation

Jack Long Foundation develops community based affordable housing

introducing elderhouse


A place to gracefully age-in-place.

A new model for single family seniors that emulates aspects of single family living. 14 Assisted & 3 transitional self-contained units. The right balance of independence and support.


Values and Principles

Dignity. Respect. Belonging.  These are the primary principles of Elderhouse. We asked what's important. "Don't take away our choices", they said. We listened. 


A place to live, visit, and enjoy life.

Elderhouse is designed to encourage socializing and visiting with comfortable, bright, and accessible gathering areas for residents and visitors.

Community consultation

East Village


We're asking East Village seniors to consider what they need for the next chapter of their lives.

The community speaks. We listen.


"Everyman can plan if given the right condition..." JLF uses a unique community engagement process to plan for affordable housing, which best supports the community's vision.

What does ageing-in-place mean?


We asked seniors themselves about their vision for ageing-in-place? 

Who would know better?




"I still cannot believe the bathroom is dry walled." In the space of three hours coffee and snacks included... Ed got new walls after nine years without them...thanks to great neighbours!

A new seniors' community garden.


Whether it's a small job or a brand new communiyy garden, Neighbour-to-Neighbour got the job done. This garden was a wonderful new amenity designed for seniors.

It's that simple.


Neighbours gather for a work day, share the load and celebrate a job well done once the work is done!


Small things make a big difference. Anne's new deck and ramp were ready for winter when a local church group answered our call.


Neighbours come in all forms in connected neighbourhoods. Local business A & A Paving cleared ground for our  garden project.


Everyone likes to and can help, given the opportunity. Neighbour-to-Neighbour helped make the connection. Many hands make less work with more fun!
