What to Consider About Assisted Living in Broken Arrow

The Department of Health, Health Facility Systems is responsible for overseeing the licensure, application process and general oversight of long-term care facilities in Oklahoma, including assisted living centers. These communities must be inspected at least once every 15 months to ensure they are compliant with state and federal licensure requirements.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Broken Arrow

  • There’s plenty to do in Broken Arrow for seniors of a variety of interests. The region is home to many lakes, parks and golf courses, offering numerous opportunities for outdoor activities. The city’s downtown is home to the award-winning Rose District, where seniors can enjoy shopping, dining, arts and entertainment, as well as a weekly farmers market. There are also many museums, galleries and annual festivals that may interest seniors.
  • Like many cities in Oklahoma, Broken Arrow offers an affordable lifestyle for retirees. The cost of living receives an index score of 89.3, which is more than 10% lower than the U.S. national average.  
  • The climate in Broken Arrow can shift quite dramatically from season to season. Summers are often hot and muggy, and winter temperatures can drop as low as 26 degrees. However, the area does see 228 days of sunshine a year which may be especially enjoyable for seniors who enjoy spending time outdoors.
  • Broken Arrow’s low crime rates may offer peace to seniors living in assisted living communities. Ranked on a scale out of 100, the city scores 13.6 for violent crime and 30 in terms of property crime. These numbers fall well below the U.S. national averages of 22.7 and 35.4 in the same categories, respectively.
  • Unfortunately, the air quality in the Broken Arrow area receives quite low ratings. The American Lung Association gives Tulsa County an F rating in terms of high ozone days. However, the region does score a B rating for 24-hour particle pollution for an overall passing grade.
  • Seniors needing specialized medical services or emergency care have access to state-of-the-art health care facilities in Broken Arrow, including St. John Broken Arrow Hospital and Saint Francis Hospital’s south campus.
  • Getting around Broken Arrow may be a bit tricky for seniors without a personal vehicle. While Tulsa Transit does serve the area, it only operates a limited service in Broken Arrow. Fortunately, many assisted living centers offer complimentary transportation services for their residents.
