    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Weatherford

    Weatherford, Oklahoma, located about 70 miles west of Oklahoma City, is home to 10,833 residents, with seniors aged 65 and older making up 10% of the population. Some of those seniors may enjoy visiting the area’s parks for a picnic lunch or an afternoon stroll, taking a swing at the area golf course, or taking in some history at local museums. There are also two assisted living facilities located within the city limits to support those seniors who may need some help with personal care and other aspects of daily living.

    In Weatherford, as is the case in all of Oklahoma, assisted living facilities are known as either assisted living centers or residential care homes, both of which are governed by the Department of Health.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Weatherford
