Trinity Care Center is a state-licensed nonprofit organization, providing activities and a social environment for adults who need supervised care, while providing a respite for long-term caregivers.

The facility, which offers its services to adults of all ages, aims to maintain optimal levels of physical and mental function in the people it serves or, at least, slow down the process of deterioration, Shukla, a registered nurse, said.

The program’s participants need supervised care due to a wide range of medical conditions including, but not limited to, strokes, accidents, dementia and multiple sclerosis.

Trinity Day Care Center is located at 708 First Ave., Tullahoma.
