Oklahoma - Housing Resources

At some point during the aging process it is common for an elderly loved one to no longer be able to live home alone.  At this time many families decide to look into a senior housing facility.  Although it may not be the easiest topic to discuss with a senior, it is important to talk to them early to allow plenty of time to search for the right facility.

Nursing Home vs. Assisted Living

Nursing homes and assisted living facilities are two of the more common senior housing options.  A nursing home is right for a senior who requires frequent medical treatment, a lot of monitoring, and assistance with most tasks. For a senior who does not require such a high level of assistance but is not able to live at home, assisted living is a better match. Seniors in assisted living often have social opportunities and activities that they participate in on their own.  Nursing home care focuses more on health care, while assisted living focuses on safety and keeping a senior busy.

Additional Resources

Oklahoma Senior Care Facility Directory: A directory of licensed nursing home and assisted living facilities across the state.

Medicare Nursing Home Information: A great resource to help families during their search for a suitable nursing home.

Other Options

Home Care: Home care is a senior care option for seniors who want to remain at home but need assistance to do so. With this care a visiting nurse will carry out various tasks in the home of a senior. 

A careful search will yield the best results.
