In Oklahoma, assisted living is called Assisted Living Centers for the purpose of licensure. The Department of Health and Protective Health Services is the department that oversees the licensing for all assisted living centers and nursing homes in Oklahoma. This includes assisted living facilities and residential care facilities. The distinct difference is that assisted living facilities in Oklahoma can provide a certain level of medical care, but a residential care facility cannot. There is a difference in licensing because the staffing requirements are different, as well as insurance and liability.

Cost of Assisted Living in Oklahoma

Statewide, the average fee a family must pay for an assisted living facility in Oklahoma is $3,325, which is around $700 below the national average. Least expensive assisted living homes can be found in Enid, at $2,860 and Lawton at $3,238 average monthly cost.  These are all substantially below the national average, enough so that in some areas they can be considered an affordable source of assisted living. The most expensive cities for assisted living in Oklahoma are Oklahoma City and Tulsa, at a range of $3,339 to $3,488 per month – still below the $4000 nationwide average cost. This makes the entire state an affordable state for assisted living and senior health care facilities. Of course, when anything falls below the national average, it’s good to do a thorough quality check on a few places to make sure the senior that needs the attention will get the care they need. Price may or may not have much to do with it.

One thing we always make certain that you understand is that memory care and Alzheimer’s care is not included in the base-rates reflected here. Memory and dementia care in Oklahoma will cost between $665 to $997 more than basic assisted living. That’s under the typical average for that medical service as well, but can still add nearly $1,000 to the monthly bill.

At this time, there are no Medicaid waiver programs available to pay for personal services at any senior living residences in Oklahoma at this time.

Looking for other options for assisted living payment may mean looking into long-term care insurance, cashable annuities, or retiree and military veteran benefits that could be used.

Regulations for Assisted Living Apartments in Oklahoma

There is no minimum square footage given as a regulation for assisted living in Oklahoma. The only guideline that is given is that the room must suite the mental, physical and medical needs of the resident. Therefore, the size of the assisted living unit is decided by need and not by legal standard. There is a maximum of two residents allowed in a senior care unit.

The bathrooms cannot be used by more than one resident at the same time. There is a maximum of four residents that can share the bath and shower facilities at any given assisted living unit. If there needs to be more than 4 residents sharing the bath and shower facilities, then it must be proven that there is a need. The facilities also have to be modeled according to the needs of the residents who are using them for any special need.
