There are a lot of people in the 50+ demographic.
According to the 2020 U.S. Census there are more than 370,000 from Guthrie to Norman and Choctaw to El Reno. By 2030, that number will exceed 400,000. That’s a lot of people who have this season of life in common.
We are living longer.
The face of aging is changing, for good. Due to great medicine, people are living longer – some well past a century. Estimates are on any given day 400 Oklahomans are over 100 years old. Many are cognitively sharp. VillagesOKC has members in that esteemed category.
We need to know whom to trust.
Oklahoma City has experienced hundreds of new companies in home health, hospice, healthy living, and specialty services to “help” with all the decisions. Every company’s brochure says “really care.” Which one to choose? VillagesOKC is here to connect seniors and families with trusted healthcare professionals and businesses whom we know personally.
Families want resources too.
Many seniors have loving families with willing support but are not close by -– available within 20 minutes. VillagesOKC is available to fill the gaps.
Retirement Centers, Independent and Assisted Living are an option.
There is a wide variety of senior living options in Oklahoma City. Seeing communities personally and the benefits, considering the benefits and costs is the only way to determine the best choice. VillagesOKC can suggest professionals who help with where to start and what to ask.
Many people want to age in their own homes.
Having trusted connections for home maintenance, insurance, roof repair, the yard, changes in Medicare insurance is helpful. VillagesOKC is also the connection for new friends and positive education.
