Dinwiddie County and SeniorNavigator have developed a partnership to address the needs of older adults and those who care for them. The goal of this partnership is to provide access to information on hundreds of services that help older adults maintain their independence and to help caregivers, family and friends meet the challenges of elder care.
In Dinwiddie County, TRIAD represents the partnership between the Sheriff, Senior Citizens and Providers to services to seniors, who have agreed to work together to reduce criminal victimization of the elderly.
TRIAD meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month from 2 - 4 pm at the Eastside Community Enhancement Center, 7301 Boydton Plank Rd., North Dinwiddie, VA.
