    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Norman

    Home to Oklahoma's largest public university, Norman is a local hub of history, culture and the arts for people of all ages. It is also the state's third largest city, with an estimated population of 120,284, 21.3 percent of whom are over the age of 55.

    Seniors considering a move into assisted living in the Norman area, have 15 different facilities to choose from, 4 in Norman and 11 in nearby communities such as Edmond and Oklahoma City.
