What to Consider About Memory Care in Oklahoma City

The State Department of Health’s Long Term Care Service licenses memory care facilities in Oklahoma. After a facility has satisfied the terms and issued a license, Long Term Care Service will conduct an annual survey to determine if the facility is abiding by the terms under which it was granted. The department revokes licenses from underperforming facilities.
