ST. CLOUD -- Every 20 minutes a senior citizen dies from a fall in America. To bring attention to this problem, CentraCare is raising awareness of Fall Prevention Day Friday.

Free Stopping Elderly Accidents, Deaths and Injuries or STEADI assessments will be offered as part of the awareness day.

They'll be performed at:

  • CentraCare Health Plaza from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. or 1:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
  • Church of St. Joseph from 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.
  • Whitney Senior Center from 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.

The assessments are only five minutes long, and the public is welcome.
