What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lawton

Lawton was founded to support Fort Sill, which still provides this city with economic and population stability. For example, Lawton’s population growth has been particularly modest since 2000, and the senior population of 8.7 percent has also changed little during this period. Senior citizens in the Lawton area can choose from four assisted living facilities, and nearby Duncan has additional facilities. Assisted living facilities in Oklahoma are regulated by the State Department of Health and described as "assisted living centers." In addition to a residence, these facilities also provide seniors with help in daily living, including general care.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lawton
