Seniors over the age of 65 make up 6.4 percent of the city's population, with one assisted living facility in the community. In Minnesota, an assisted living facility describes Housing with Services (HWS) or a service, service package or a program within a HWS establishment that meets MN Statute 144G minimum requirements. Assisted living facilities in Annandale and the rest of the state are regulated by the Minnesota Department of Health.

  • The Annandale Area Community Team (ACT) is comprised of local residents dedicated to arts and cultural activities in the community. Seniors are encouraged to participate in artistic, cultural and historic  programs.
