Welcome Daily Living Centers
We are Oklahoma's Leader in Affordable, Quality, Adult Day Care
Daily Living Centers is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit. We are the oldest and largest adult day health care organization in Oklahoma, with four locations spread throughout the Oklahoma City metro area.
Daily Living Centers is the affordable, non-residential facility that support the health, nutritional and social needs of seniors and adults with disabilities ages 18 year old and up. We provide an alternative to assisted living centers and nursing homes in a professionally staffed, group setting. DLC has four centers with locations in Bethany, Edmond, Northeast Oklahoma City and South Oklahoma City.
Daily Living Centers is more than an adult day care center. We offer comprehensive services and interactive activities led by skilled professionals. Because of the impact that quality, adult day health care has on both caretakers and participants, we strive to provide caregiver respite, health services, healthy meals, socialization, activities, exercise, and transportation services.
We were initially founded in 1974 as a therapeutic day care center for impaired, homebound and elderly people. The pilot program was organized by a group of individuals in partnership with Areawide Aging and the YMCA.
In 1977, the program operated out of the basement of the First Presbyterian Church. It was officially incorporated and the name “Daily Living Centers” as we know it today, was born.
In 1980, we earned our United Way designation, and we’ve been growing ever since.
Of special importance to our history was the 1987 hire of Bill Weaver as our Executive Director. Mr. Weaver led our growth for 29 years, and while he is no longer with us, his contributions to adult day health care live on. Our Bethany Center bears his name to honor his memory.
Under Bill’s leadership, we became the 1st licensed adult daycare facility in Oklahoma. We moved into our first building and opened three additional locations so we could serve more people throughout the metro area.
Currently under the new leadership of Jessica Clayton current President and CEO we are preparing to move our Edmond facility to a new and larger location to better serve our current participants and caregivers and grow to serve even more.
