Oklahoma Senior Housing
Read about the local resources that can help you find senior housing in Oklahoma.
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.
