Daily Living Center

The Daily Living Center, a component of the John T. O’Connor Senior Center, is a licensed adult day care program 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 the community rather than be institutionalized.

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.

Most participants pay little or nothing. The Daily Living Center’s hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. 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 689-8203.
