A local group who's aim is to help seniors remain safe through the challenges they face has recently begun to focus on those with Alzheimer's Disease.
DeWitt County Sheriff Jered Shofner and his office has been instrumental in the group's viability in DeWitt County and indicates the Alzheimer's Association has recently come forward as new partner in their effort.
The two entities are stepping up to help families with a loved one that might wander off, to have a GPS unit on them and they can be found and minimize the worry and fear.
A local partner has also emerged for TRIAD and that would be Warner Hospital and Health Services. Shofner indicates their group is all about partnerships because none of their funding comes from tax-payer dollars.
Sheriff Shofner says the best way to get more information about the TRIAD program and the things they have going on is to contact his office at 217-935-9507. They are also on Facebook.
