Project Description

Why Active Living for Seniors?

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