Healthy Ageing in PRH Estates 2019-21
The Hong Kong Housing Authority (HA) has been organising the “Healthy Ageing in Public Rental Housing Estates” programme for years to promote active ageing among elderly tenants.
Last year, to encourage senior tenants to work out more and keep fit amid the pandemic, the HA has specially produced a set of videos "Fitness Exercise for the Elderly". The videos were broadcast on HA’s Housing Channel through TVs installed at lift lobbies of every public housing domestic block and uploaded to the HA’s Facebook, Instagram and YouTube, so that elderly tenants and their care-givers can watch and practice the exercises conveniently.

To remind elderly tenants to stay alert to the virus and send them HA's warm regards, we also partnered with the Oral Health Education Division of the Department of Health to bring them 'fortune bags' with epidemic protective material and oral health products before Chinese New Year.
