Seniors are an active part of life at Trinity and there are many opportunities to both grow and serve at Trinity.
Riverview Adult Day Care (RADC) was started by Trinity over 20 years ago as a non-denominational ministry to serve the need for care of older adults from the community need of structured socialization, health monitoring, or who can’t be left alone and yet do not yet need to need a full-time nursing care. RADC is supported by community as well the Trinity family through the donation of building space, financial assistance, and countless volunteer hours. Learn more at www.riverviewadultdaycenter.org
