What to Consider About Assisted Living in Muskogee

From golf courses and water parks to museums and fancy theaters, the town of Muskogee in eastern Oklahoma has plenty of activities for seniors to enjoy throughout the year. Nearly one in six people who reside in Muskogee are aged 65 and over. Some of these seniors require some help with daily living, and there are two assisted living communities in town that may be able to accommodate them. The official name for these locations in Muskogee and other parts of Oklahoma are Assisted Living Centers and Residential Care Homes. They are licensed and regulated by the state's Department of Health.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Muskogee

  • Seniors in Muskogee benefit from close access to many popular arts and culture destinations, including the Three Rivers Museum and Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame. Live performances are hosted throughout the year at the Muskogee Little Theatre.

  • Seniors and their families looking for assisted living may be attracted to Muskogee due to its relatively low living expenses. The overall cost of living is 14 points lower than the Oklahoma state average and 24.9% lower than the national average.
     
  • Oklahoma has tax policies that may make it easier for seniors in Muskogee to afford assisted living. There is no state income tax on Social Security benefits, and anyone aged 65 and over can claim a $10,000 deduction on all other retirement earnings. 

  • The Muskogee area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Saint Francis Hospital Muskogee, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

  • Public transportation in the city of Muskogee is provided by the Muskogee County Public Transit Authority. There are several bus routes within the city as well as Cherokee Nation and on-demand services. 

  • Due to the high rates of crime in Muskogee, seniors may want to check on the security features at local assisted living facilities. The violent crime rate is nearly double the Oklahoma average of 25.5, and the property crime rate is 21.7 points higher than the national average.
