Elder Care's mission is to ensure that mature adults live happy, healthy independent lives by linking them with the vital services necessary to maintain maximum independence in their home environments.
Through our programs we offer a broad range of services to seniors and their caregivers including: case management, adult day health services, caregiver support groups, home care services, specialized primary healthcare, physical therapy, and a social networking group.

The 19th annual celebration of The Good, The Bad and The Barbeque was another great success. Hundreds attended Elder Care’s annual fund raiser at the Mullendore Cross Bell Ranch on Saturday May 13th hosted by the family of Katsy Mullendore Whittenburg.
Music from Gypsy Twang floated through the air while guests danced and dined on barbeque at the beautiful, historical ranch. This year special guest Les Gilliam the “Oklahoma Balladeer” performed with the band as well.
Best of all, the event raised money for Elder Care’s programs to help mature adults in our community live happy, healthy and independent lives. Elder Care serves over 850 clients each month through its DayBreak Adult Day Health Center, W.R. Bohon Senior Health Clinic, Physical Therapy, Care Management, Brighter Living Services and In-Home Services, and Golden Opportunities.
“It was a bittersweet evening for those of us who have been involved with the Barbeque for a long time,” reflected Board President Virginia Sawyer. “The recent death of Katsy Mullendore Whittenburg has caused us to be even more grateful for her many wonderful contributions to Elder Care’s success and we miss her guiding spirit. We are also very thankful to her family for continuing to host the event and we know Katsy would be proud of what they have done. The hospitality of the Mullendore family has been the hallmark of the Barbeque throughout the years and this year was no different.
As always, the support of the community is outstanding and we cannot thank our donors, sponsors and guests enough for their generosity.”
