Brookdale Norman

Review by Karin | Consumer

The staff at Brookdale Norman was very attentive and nice. The rooms were nice, and they had one-bedrooms, which were more like little apartments, as well as studios. They had all kinds of programs available for the seniors. The folks and the staff seemed very happy. It's a smaller facility, like a square with two hall...

Assisted Living Costs in Norman

According to Genworth’s 2018 Cost of Care study, the average monthly cost of assisted living in Norman is $661 less than the national average of $4,000 and similar to the state average of $3,325. Norman is one of the most expensive cities in the state for assisted living, second only to Tulsa at $3,488. Costs here are significantly more expensive than in the smaller community of Enid ($2,860), but only slightly above the comparably sized city of Lawton ($3,238).

The Cost of Assisted Living in Surrounding Areas

Care Cost Comparison

The biggest factor in the cost of senior care is the type of care needed. In Norman, the cost of nursing home care is $1,619 more per month than assisted living. Homemaker services cost slightly more at $3,432, while home health aide services are $570 more expensive per month. Although they cost more, in-home services don’t cover living expenses such as rent, utilities, property taxes or food, which are usually included in residential care facility fees.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Norman

Medicaid in Oklahoma

Oklahoma Medicaid, called SoonerCare, is available to low-income residents including families with children, pregnant women, the elderly, those with disabilities and women under age 65 being treated for breast or cervical cancer. The program covers part or all of the cost of a wide range of health care services, such as doctor visits, inpatient hospital services, prescriptions, transportation and nursing home care. SoonerCare is administered by the Oklahoma Health Care Authority, and it’s an entitlement program that provides assistance to everyone who meets these qualification requirements: 

  • Oklahoma resident
  • U.S. citizen or qualified alien 
  • Monthly income of no more than $2,250 for an individual or $4,500 for a couple
  • No more than $2,000 in countable resources

Income from all sources counts. Certain assets, such as a primary home valued under $585,000 and an automobile are exempt.

To apply for SoonerCare, visit the OHCA website or call (800) 987-7767.

ADvantage Waiver Program

The ADvantage Waiver program is available to seniors who need long-term nursing home care but wish to live in their own home. Seniors also have the option of receiving services in an assisted living facility. Covered support and services may include case management, adult day health care, transportation, hospice care, personal care assistance, disposable medical supplies and specialized medical equipment.

This waiver is not an entitlement, and there may be a waiting list. To qualify,  residents must:

  • Meet the financial requirements for SoonerCare
  • Be 65 or older or designated by the SSA as a disabled adult
  • Require a nursing facility level of care as determined by the Aging Services Division
  • Not have a diagnosis of cognitive impairment or intellectual disability
  • Reside in their own home or a homelike noninstitutional setting
  • Have needs that can be safely met with provided services

To apply for the waiver, contact the Norman Department of Human Services office or call (800) 435-4711.

Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living

State Supplemental Payment

Oklahoma provides a state supplemental payment to residents who are aged, blind or disabled and living in an independent living arrangement. Individuals may receive up to $42 per month. To qualify for SPP benefit payments, applicants must:

  • Be eligible for SSI benefits due to age or disability
  • Not be a resident of a government run facility 
  • Not be a long-term patient in a psychiatric facility
  • Meet the federal SSI countable resource limit of $2,000 for an individual or $3,000 for a couple

Elderlife Financial Bridge Loan

Seniors who need short-term assistance covering the initial cost of residential care may qualify for a bridge loan from Elderlife Financial Services. These loans can help span the financial gap seniors experience while waiting for a house to sell or benefits to begin. Elderlife loans offer terms of up to 12 months for repayment and allow multiple borrowers to apply, which lessens the importance of individual credit scores in the approval process.

To learn more, contact Elderlife Financial Services at (888) 228-4500.
