What to Consider About Assisted Living in Kingfisher

Kingfisher is a small city that is located on the outskirts of Oklahoma City. Kingfisher County, which is the county in which the city is located, has close to 16,000 people. In spite of its small size, the county's senior community comprises about 16 percent of the population. To support the local senior community, Kingfisher has a senior center, as well as one assisted living facility. Like all assisted living facilities in the state, the assisted living facility in Kingfisher is licensed through the Oklahoma Department of Health, Protective Health Services, Long-term Care Services.

This may impact how much money seniors can put toward their assisted living expenses.

  • Kingfisher is a vibrant community with a variety of arts and culture amenities, including the Chisholm Trail Museum, where seniors are admitted for a discounted rate.
