Assisted living communities and other long-term care facilities for seniors are governed by the Oklahoma Department of Human Services. This department licenses assisted living communities and routinely inspects them to ensure they are following the Continuum of Care and Assisted Living Act.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Edmond

  • Edmond, located along Route 66, is full of nostalgic charm, especially in the historic downtown area. Active seniors can find championship golf courses, over 200 dining options, street festivals and acres of parkland to explore.
  • Edmond has an average of 235 sunny days per year, compared to the 205 national average, and it rarely snows in the area. Warm summers and mild winters earn it a good rating for climate and comfort. Spring and fall are its most comfortable seasons.
  • Seniors in Edmond also benefit from its low cost of living compared to national averages. This fact makes it possible for them to stretch retirement savings. Transportation costs are some of the most affordable in the area. However, the cost of living is higher than Oklahoma’s average.
  • Another perk of living in this community is its relative safety. Edmond has much lower crime rates than the U.S. averages. Violent crime is ranked at 12.7, compared to the 22.7 national average.
  • Edmond has six hospitals to serve its senior population, and it is not far from the larger hospitals of Oklahoma City. The Integris Baptist Medical Center, which has a satellite campus in Edmond, is high-performing in heart care.
