We were delighted to see such a robust "senior scene" in Oklahoma City! When we created this page, we had a sense that there is a strong assisted living community in OKC. Several large, national assisted living companies operate here, as well as a number of smaller, privately owned assisted living and Alzheimer's Care communities - all of which serve the almost 63,000 seniors living in Oklahoma City.
In addition, we found some great senior services and activities offered by the City of Oklahoma City - most of which are offered through the several Senior Activity Centers in the city.
Essentially, seniors in Oklahoma City (age 55 and older) can take classes ranging from art, to poetry, to yoga and meditation. There are also specialty programs, such as financial planning, that seniors can take part in.
We also found that Oklahoma City has and "Areawide Aging Agency" which exists to "improve the lives of older adults in our community" with numerous funded programs. The number for the Agency is 405 942 8500

OKC, and Oklahoma County residents are fortunate to have, at their fingertips, a plethora of great services and support - whether you are a senior, caregiver or family member.
Notably, this area is served by 'Area 8' on the Area Agencies on Aging map provided through the Oklahoma Department of Human Services (learn more about what an Area Agency on Aging does ). Specifically, this is the Areawide Agency on Aging, which acts to coordinate services for seniors through 'funding provided by state, and federal grants, United Way of Oklahoma City, as well as other grants and private donations.'
This agency provides an extremely helpful "Survival Kit for Seniors" that is updated annually. You can pick up your copy (at the time of this writing, the fee for the guide is $3) at 4101 Perimeter Center Drive, Suite 310 Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 73112.
