How we determine rankings

Our 2023 state ranking for assisted living uses A Place for Mom’s proprietary data collected from our community partners. First, we sorted through our metrics and grouped them into three pillars that are key in a quality assisted living experience. We weighted these pillars differently based on insights from our senior living experts. Then, we used these categories and their weighting to determine how each state ranks.

Cost of assisted living in Oklahoma

In Oklahoma, the median monthly starting cost of assisted living is around $4,500, according to A Place for Mom’s internal data from its brand partners.[01] This amount is slightly lower than a national median monthly cost of assisted living, which is $4,807.

It’s a good idea to look at median costs instead of average costs when considering assisted living in Oklahoma, because medians normally aren’t influenced by extreme values, such as high-end assisted living communities in Oklahoma City and Tulsa. Prices vary in Oklahoma, with the lower 10th percentile monthly cost at approximately $3,500, while the 90th percentile monthly cost is about $5,700 per month.[01]

Many different factors affect the cost of assisted living. Typically, pricing takes into account the level of care required by a resident. The following factors may also influence pricing for assisted living in Oklahoma:

  • A community’s location
  • Room dimensions
  • Number of bedrooms
  • Services provided on-site
  • Amenities available to community residents

In Oklahoma, assisted living communities tend to cost less in more rural areas than in higher-population-density areas, such as Norman or Broken Arrow. Looking at the prices of assisted living can feel overwhelming, but some elder Okies may qualify for Medicaid or Medicare to help pay for assisted living in the state. If your loved one is eligible for these programs, they can help offset the cost of assisted living by covering some qualified care services.

Assisted living requirements and regulations in Oklahoma

In Oklahoma, the Department of Health, Protective Health Services, Long Term Care Services Division provides licensure and oversight for assisted living. This department conducts inspections of assisted living facilities, and facilities typically have to meet state requirements outlined in Oklahoma’s Assisted Living Rules and Regulations to be licensed in the state.[02]

You may be able to learn more about a specific community’s inspection report or other information through the Oklahoma Department of Health’s Long Term Care Provider Survey/Inspection Search portal.

The above rules and regulations outline the rights of residents of assisted living communities, plus the guidelines for assisted living staff members. For example, assisted living communities in Oklahoma should do the following:

  • Give each resident a copy of the resident service contract.
  • Provide all services that are specifically listed in the resident’s service contract.
  • Train direct care staff to provide first aid and CPR.
  • Follow Oklahoma regulations for food storage, preparation, and service.
  • Notify a resident, the resident’s representative, or a member of the resident’s family at least 30 days before terminating a resident’s service contract.
