Assisted Living in Oklahoma

Oklahoma, as the musical puts it, is filled with plenty of air, rural vistas and plenty of hope. Wander the forests of Oklahoma and try to spot the scissor-tailed flycatcher or head to the southern plains of the state and see the bright white berries on the mistletoe in fall and winter. There's plenty of things to do for seniors of all mobilities.

Oklahoma City is the state capital and largest city and boasts great local amenities for residents of Oklahoma assisted living communities. Take in some of the state's history in Tulsa, the second-largest city and former Oil Capital of the World, or catch Division 1 sports at the University of Oklahoma in Norman. There's wind. There's rain. But there are hot, dry summers and mild winters that make senior living in Oklahoma..a-OK.

What Is Assisted Living?

An assisted living facility is typically called an "assisted living center" in Oklahoma. The state considers any home or establishment that provides services to two or more people as an assisted living center. Such facilities assist residents with personal care, nursing supervision and medication assistance. Additionally, assisted living centers in Oklahoma provide assistance with the activities of daily living (ADLs) such as getting around, personal grooming, and other personal needs. In many cases, “assisted living” is used interchangeably with the term “personal care” when looking into communities in Oklahoma.

What Does Assisted Living Cost in Oklahoma?

In Oklahoma, the average monthly cost of assisted living is $3,325, according to the 2018 Genworth Cost of Care Survey.

The national median monthly cost for assisted living in the United States, as of 2018, is $4,000 per month. However, Oklahoma's median monthly cost of assisted living is $3,325. Among the state's largest cities, median costs largely fall below the state median:

  • Enid: $2,860 per month
  • Lawton: $3,238 per month
  • Oklahoma City: $3,339 per month
  • Tulsa: $3,488 per month

Oklahoma has experienced robust population growth since the 2010 US Census, with the overall population growing by 4.8 percent from 3.75 million to 3.93 million residents. Seniors make up a significant amount of the overall population at 15.3 percent. The population of the state is expected to continue climbing in the decades to come, with the state expected to surpass 4 million by 2020.

How Is Assisted Living Regulated in Oklahoma?

The Oklahoma State Department of Health regulates assisted living communities in the state. The department is responsible for establishing certification and operational requirements for communities, conducting background checks, and ensuring that each assisted living facility is properly regulated to meet these standards.

How Is Assisted Living in Oklahoma Affected by Laws and Taxes?

Oklahoma recently amended state laws in 2017 impacting the Continuum of Care and assisted living facilities. The statutes introduced bring changes to the application process of licensure in the state. The Oklahoma State Department of Health is tasked with ensuring that all assisted living facilities adhere to the laws regulating licensure and operation of senior communities.

Oklahoma has a tax-friendly stance toward senior residents. The state offers a full exemption for Social Security retirement benefits and also offers a $10,000 deduction for other types of retirement income, such as Roth IRA and 401(k) accounts. Additionally, the state's 4.5 percent sales tax does not apply to prescription drugs, offering a boost to the finances of local seniors.

Politics in Oklahoma

The state of Oklahoma has a long history of populist leanings in government. The governor is the head of the state and also is the head of the government, and as a result, he has a lot of power. Though locals have elected both Democrats and Republicans in the past, the state tends to elect Republican candidates, who typically hold supermajorities in both chambers of government. Since 2004, every county has had Republican majorities in presidential elections, making it a firm red state.

However, there is a small number of Democrats in the state legislature and the senate.
