Project Description

Why Active Living for Seniors?

The Health Department is partnering with the Minneapolis Highrise Representative Council (MHRC) to improve active living for seniors living in Minneapolis Public Housing Authority highrises. Together we are engaging seniors living in 10 highrises to make it easier to walk around the highrises, use fitness equipment in the buildings, and access falls prevention classes. An advisory committee is helping lead these efforts and is made up of highrise residents, MHRC staff, Health Department staff, Public Works staff, Volunteers of America social workers, and Allina Health staff.

For many seniors, it is important that sidewalks are clear and free of tripping hazards. Make sure your neighborhood streets are friendly for seniors:
