File of Life
The program was developed by Triad to quickly and accurately provide important medical facts in the midst of a life-threatening emergency. Sometimes a patient in a medical emergency is unable to communicate important medical facts about themselves. The File of Life provides responding emergency personnel with a quick and accurate medical history. It is Free! Access a File of Life form (PDF).
File of Life Kit
A File of Life kit contains a blank medical card, a plastic pocket, and a decal. Kit instructions are as follows:
- The card should be filled out in pencil, to allow changes, with the patient's name, medical history, prescription information, and emergency medical contact numbers.
- The medical card slips into the plastic magnetic pocket that protects the card and the patient's privacy.
- The entire magnetic pocket is attached to the outside of the refrigerator.
- The small, highly-visual decal is then attached to the front door or window to alert emergency personnel to the presence of the File of Life program.
Home Security Survey
Seniors residing in the county can learn how to improve their home security by arranging for police or sheriff's personnel to conduct a free home-security survey.
Senior Citizen Safety Programs
Chesterfield County's older adults may participate in safety and fraud-prevention programs offered by various county departments, the Better Business Bureau and the Office of the Attorney General.
Held on the first Wednesday in May, this free event presents a safety program and entertainment, while hosting 65 vendors that provide services for older adults.
Seniors in Touch
Adults aged 60 and older, who live alone and do not have family members living within a 60-mile radius, may have a representative of the Chesterfield County Sheriff's Office call or visit them weekly.
Older adults and disabled adults who live alone or feel isolated may sign up to have volunteers from the Aging & Disability Services office call them on a daily or weekly basis to verify their well-being. For more program information.
Yellow Dot Program
In the event of an accident, a Yellow Dot sticker on the rear window of a vehicle informs first responders that the glove compartment contains important medical information about the driver.
