Free senior screenings offered

Posted:

Hey seniors, we've got free screenings for you.

That's what folks at the Family Justice Center in South Bend were saying Tuesday.  Blood pressure and blood sugar were just some of the check ups that were offered free of charge.

It was all to raise awareness on the growing problem of elder abuse.

"With senior safety screenings one of the best benefits is that they are able to freely disclose to us any concerns and then we are able to help them connecting them with the proper services to get them the assistance they need," says Erica Costello of Adult Protective Services.

And if you missed your chance Tuesday there will be more free senior screenings offered Wednesday at the Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center.
