What to Consider About Assisted Living in Enid

Oklahoma's Long Term Care Service of Protective Health Services monitors assisted living communities in Enid and throughout the state. Beyond inspecting facilities to ensure residents' well-being, the agency investigates complaints about care quality to protect seniors' rights.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Enid

 

  • The overall cost of living in Enid is about 4.7% lower than the U.S. average. Certain expense categories offer even greater savings; local food prices are about 11.3% lower than average, transportation costs are around 13.5% less and housing rates are about 19% cheaper.

 

  • As part of Garfield County, Enid and surrounding areas have a relatively high sales tax rate of 9.1%. However, Oklahoma has two tax policies benefiting seniors; the state doesn't tax Social Security benefits, and residents can deduct up to $10,000 from other forms of retirement income such as 401(k) disbursements. The state taxes any remaining retirement income at rates ranging from 0.25% to 4.75%. 

 

  • Enid has higher crime rates than about 68% of American cities. However, the Enid Police Department reports a decrease in local property crimes in recent years, and assisted living communities typically feature security cameras and monitored entrances to protect residents.

 

  • The weather in Enid ranges from hot and humid in the summer to cold and snowy in the winter. High temperatures reach 95 degrees Fahrenheit in July, while humidity levels are frequently muggy or oppressive from May through September. On the other hand, the city gets about 11 inches of total snowfall throughout winter alongside low temperatures around 27 degrees Fahrenheit.
