What to Consider About Assisted Living in Yukon
Yukon is known as “The Czech Capital of Oklahoma” due to the many Czechs who immigrated to the area in the late 19th century. The annual Czech Day celebrations are a reminder of the city’s heritage.

Within city limits, there are three assisted living facilities; another 16 are located in Oklahoma City, Bethany and other nearby communities.
These facilities, just like those in the rest of the state, are regulated by the Oklahoma State Department of Health. Licensed assisted living facilities provide accommodations, assistance with personal care and other services to their senior residents.
