Senior Care Referral of Oklahoma is reimbursed for our costs by the service providers we refer.  This is a standard industry practice and allows us to provide our service at no cost to families and loved ones.  We only work with care centers that are licensed (as required) and will provide inspection reports to you during your visit.  Home care agencies and other services we refer must be bonded and insured in order for us to partner with them.

Cost Information

Seeing pricing information from a retirement, independent living, or assisted living community for the first time can be a bit overwhelming.  This is partly because the monthly service fee at retirement communities includes many costs that a homeowner pays in addition to their standard rent or mortgage.  When these "inclusive costs" are taken into consideration, the total investment for some communities can actually be quite comparable to living at home.  Below is an example of a real Oklahoma City independent living community compared to at home costs:
