About Daily Living Center

Since 1974, Daily Living Centers (DLC) has provided rest and hope for caregivers. We are Oklahoma's first and leading non-profit adult day provider for senior adults and adults with disabilities ages 18 and older. We have three locations that offer non-residential affordable day services for over 200 participants 246 days a year in an environment that enhances mind, body, and spirit. While attending DLC our "participants" enjoy healthy meals, exercise programs, socialization, activities, and outings that meet their individual needs. We have a fleet of 21 vehicles including limos, wheelchair accessible vans, and sedans that provide door-to-door transportation and med rides. Many of our participants have physical and/or mental limitations or suffer from isolation and depression. Common diagnoses found in those we serve include dementia, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, stroke, traumatic brain injury, autism, Down Syndrome, and other developmental disabilities.

Annually, DLC programs serve over 68,000 healthy meals, 416 outings that provide community integration and over 30,000 door-to-door transportation services. We are staffed with LPNs & CNAs to provide healthcare and assistance with activities of daily living. Our services keep our participants healthy, independent, and thriving at home while reducing isolation. Caregivers benefit as well by giving them peace of mind and the ability to continue to work, and rest from 24/7 caregiver duties. DLC is a more affordable option than other forms of long-term care and saves the state money. DLC receives over $300,000 in adult day scholarship and over $100,000 transportation scholarship requests each year. Our goal is to never turn anyone away due to financial need. We hear often that our services are "life-saving." Please visit www.dlcok.org to discover more about DLC.
