The state’s 90 casinos are sure to keep seniors pressing their luck, while 95 theaters host everything from professional productions to community plays. Whether seniors desire to visit rural America or are looking for a more modern experience, Oklahoma offers it all.
Oklahoma retirement communities are designed for seniors, usually ages 55 and older, who are able to live independently. While the staff at retirement facilities assists with activities and housekeeping, they are not trained for medical care. Since there is usually no medical care on site, seniors in retirement communities must be able to seek medical treatment elsewhere. However, staff is available 24 hours a day for emergencies.
For seniors that need extra care and assistance, assisted living, nursing homes and care facilities can provide medical care for seniors. These facilities are inspected and licensed by the state, while retirement facilities are not.
