Welcome to the Oaklawn Center on Aging

Dedicated to Improving the Lives of Older Adults and Caregivers

Oaklawn Center on Aging, Inc. is committed to healthy aging and aging in place.  With the Arkansas Department of Health confirming cases of the Coronavirsus, OCOA will be postponing our programs.  Programs postponed include Tai Chi, Ageless Grace, A Matter of Balance, DEEP, Healthy Cooking and Caregiver Support Group.  We will continue to update our patrons and notify you as soon as we feel it is safe to begin coming back together in groups.  

We will post educational information on our website and Facebook page.  Our website has several free tai chi videos to help you practice at home.  

Your health and well being are of the utmost importance to us.  Please take the time to make sure you are safe, wash your hands, get some fresh air and  stay away from groups of people.  

We wish you good health and hope to see you in the near future.

Best regards,

Our Mission & VIsion

The Oaklawn Center on Aging (OCOA) is a program funded through the Oaklawn Foundation and is dedicated to improving the lives of older adults and caregivers in the Garland County area.

The importance of geriatric care and services has increased as the over-65 population continues to grow. Demand for these specialized services, programs, and care which address the distinctive needs of seniors living in the Garland County area are addressed through the mission and goals of the OCOA.

The Oaklawn Center on Aging offers a wide variety of educational programs to help older adults and their families live healthy vibrant lives.

The Oaklawn Center on Aging provides information, education, and direction in order to answer questions of seniors, relatives or caregivers, eliminating the guessing game.

“Aging is out of your control. How you handle it, though, is in your hands.”

Diane Von Furstenberg
