Lyndale Edmond was very nice. The staff members were also very nice, confident, and knew what they were doing. We saw a room in the assisted living section and it was nice and clean. They have a regular dining room for a lot of people and it also looked fine. They should put up a sign with the right name so people know...Read more Lyndale Edmond reviews

My mom is very pleased at Stonecreek. They are very attentive to her needs. She has made quite a few new friends there and loves the atmosphere. The food is very good, not something you would expect in a nursing type facility. The nurse Frank is wonderful. Very focused on his patients and jokes around with them often. ...Read more StoneCreek Assisted Living & Memory Care reviews

In Edmond, all types of senior care average below $5,000 per month. At $4,958, skilled, full-time nursing home care is the most expensive care type, while adult day health services are the least costly at $1,300 per month.
The upfront average monthly costs of assisted living ($3,339) in Edmond are less than those of home health care services, which include homemaker services ($3,432) and home health aides ($3,909).

Senior Care Cost Comparison Chart
In Oklahoma, the Medicaid program is termed SoonerCare. It provides eligible, low-income individuals with free and low-cost medically necessary health care services.
Benefits of SoonerCare may include:
Along with being an Oklahoma resident and U.S. citizen, there are certain financial criteria that Edmond seniors who are aged 65 and older, blind or disabled must meet to qualify.
Asset and income limits vary depending on whether applicants are single or applying together as a married couple. For income, the maximum monthly limits are $1,041 for an individual and $1,409 for a married couple. Countable assets, which do not include items such as an applicant’s primary vehicle, home or furnishings, must be no more than $2,000 for an individual and $3,000 for a married couple.
Certain seniors and people with disabilities who require a nursing home level of care may also wish to receive long-term care services through Medicaid. These applicants must meet a separate set of financial criteria:
Of those who qualify for long-term Medicaid, individuals living or wishing to live in a nursing home are entitled to receive care services. Seniors who would like to receive services in an assisted living home, however, must apply through the following waiver. Those accepted into the waiver program may be placed on a wait list before receiving care.
ADvantage Medicaid Waiver
The ADvantage Medicaid waiver serves eligible seniors and people with disabilities who would like to live outside of a nursing home. Services provided to participants in assisted living homes includes:
To qualify for the ADvantage waiver, Edmond seniors must be financially and medically eligible as determined by a DHS social worker and nurse. As the waiver does not pay for room and board, participants must pay a rate up to 90% of the Supplemental Security Income benefit rate.
Edmond seniors may apply to be an ADvantage participant by calling the ADvantage Administration (800) 435-4711 or contacting the Oklahoma County Department of Human Services at (405) 271-3325.
Seniors who want to apply for SoonerCare should complete the online application.
Veterans Aid & Attendance
The federal VA Aid & Attendance program may help certain Edmond area veterans and their surviving spouses by providing monthly monetary payments in addition to already received monthly pension.
To qualify for these payments, vets and their eligible spouses must not already be enrolled in the VA Housebound program and should meet one or more of the conditions below:
To apply for this program, interested vets or spouses should send a written report describing their disabilities, daily habits and level of mobility to the St. Paul VA Regional Office at the address below:
Department of Veterans Affairs

Elderlife Bridge Loans
Seniors willing to take out a short-term line of credit may benefit from an Elderlife Financial bridge loan to help pay for their costs of living such as rent and moving fees in an assisted living facility. These loans have terms of up to one year and competitive interest rates.
Elderlife considers each applicant’s income and asset information along with credit scores to determine eligibility. Because the company allows multiple co-applicants on one loan, however, seniors with a low personal credit score may still qualify if the scores of co-applicant family members are higher. Due to the loans short-term nature, Elderlife also expects applicants to have a longer-term plan for paying for assisting living care in place.
To apply for a bridge loan, Edmond residents can complete the online application or call (888) 228-4500.
