Bethany is part of the Oklahoma City metropolex, and has been developing as a bedroom community for that area since 1930. The large number of retirees in this city is one of the primary reasons for its relatively high population of seniors. It also accounts for the large number of assisted living facilities in the area, with three in Bethany itself and another 45 in surrounding cities like Yukon. These facilities generally include multiple services for seniors, including assistance with daily living activities. Facilities in Bethany, and elsewhere in the state, are regulated by the State Department of Health in Oklahoma, which defines them as assisted living centers.
