Healthy Ageing in PRH Estates

The Housing Authority has been organising the “Healthy Ageing in PRH Estates” programme to encourage “active ageing” among elderly tenants.

Starting from 2016/17, we have been collaborating with the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) and the Department of Health (DH) to further promote disease prevention among them.

Under the programme, the Henry G. Leong Mobile Integrative Health Centre of PolyU visits various public housing estates to provide free health checks, follow-up and referral services for elderly tenants.

Free health talks cum workshops organised by PolyU and the Oral Health Education Unit of DH are also part of the programme. Elderly tenants from various districts are invited to join the talks to learn more about healthy diet, proper exercise techniques and oral health.
