Healthy Homes senior citizens resource booklet helps seniors thrive in their own homes

Feb. 24, 2014 (MINNEAPOLIS) The Minneapolis Health Department has produced a Healthy Homes resource guide of agencies that serve Minneapolis senior residents. The booklet includes resources for chore services, financial assistance, home modification, de-cluttering, indoor health hazard mitigation, pest control, and programs for veterans.

The City of Minneapolis supports healthy aging for residents who wish to remain in their own homes. The Healthy Homes Senior Citizens initiative was created in partnership with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) through the Healthy Homes Thriving Communities grant. Increasing access to services and connecting area agencies that work with seniors were identified as priority first steps in improving the ability of seniors to thrive in their own homes and age gracefully.

Folks can download the guide or request one by calling the Minneapolis Health Department at (612) 673-2301.
