Daily Living Center
The Daily Living Center, a component of the John T. O’Connor Senior Center, is a licensed adult day services center with the mission of providing community-based services to Knox County residents age 60 or older who are in need of a structured program that will develop or improve daily living skills, foster independence through social interaction, and allow the individual to remain in their home and in the community as long as possible .
The program is directed toward senior adults with low incomes or who are receiving Adult Protective Services from the Tennessee Department of Human Services. Income eligibility and fee structure are established by the Tennessee Department of Human Services Social Service Block Grant guidelines.
Daily programming includes meals, group games, music and art therapy, exercise, memory activities and reminiscing, as well as special celebrations and movie days.
Many participants pay little or nothing to attend. The Daily Living Center’s hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 7:45 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. Participants attend from 8:30 am – 2:30 pm. The program is located at 3900 Probus Road, in the Northridge Crossing. Referrals for admission can be made by calling the Daily Living Center at 689-8412.
We’re excited to offer the Music and Memory program at the Daily Living Center. Thank you to The Pat Summitt Foundation for the grant to help us implement this wonderful program.
