It also provides information on residents’ rights.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Midwest City

 

  • Midwest City is home to SSM Health St. Anthony Hospital – Midwest, which offers a range of primary and specialty services, along with emergency care. There are about 293 doctors per 100,000 people in this city, versus the national norm of 210, and many local assisted living facilities have on-call physicians who handle routine checkups.
  • Midwest City’s weather is cooler than most places in Oklahoma, with year-round temperatures ranging from 28 to 93 degrees Fahrenheit. The city gets about 5 inches of annual snowfall, about half of which comes in January, along with 38 inches of rain. To keep residents comfortable and active regardless of the season, local assisted living facilities typically have indoor and outdoor amenities and activities.
  • Historically, property crime occurs at a higher rate in Midwest City than in a typical U.S. city. The city scores 58.7 on a 100-point index, compared to the national score of 35.4. However, the rate of occurrences has been dropping for about a decade. Violent crime is comparatively uncommon, scoring 16.2 compared to 22.7 nationally, providing peace of mind to many moving to this city for assisted living.
  • Midwest City’s overall cost of living is comparable to the state norm and roughly 20% lower than the national average, which may make the city a financially viable option for seniors living on fixed incomes. Additionally, housing costs trend below state and national averages, which may result in competitive assisted living costs.
  • The air quality in Oklahoma County, where Midwest City is located, is fair, with the American Lung Association giving the city grades of C for ozone and 24-hour particle pollution levels, along with a passing grade for annual particle pollution. For those sensitive to environmental irritants, assisted living facilities in Midwest City typically offer indoor activities and amenities throughout the year.
  • Seniors in Midwest City don’t pay state income taxes on their Social Security income, and they can claim a deduction of up to $10,000 to reduce what they owe on retirement income from other sources. This may help them afford assisted living costs in the Midwest City region.
