Oklahoma City is home to dozens of assisted living communities that serve thousands of the city’s senior citizens. Epworth Villa is the premier Methodist retirement community within the city, although several other Methodist senior living centers can be found scattered throughout the surrounding area. These facilities are focused on helping seniors to live out the remainder of their years in comfort and good health, either independently or under the care of trained staff members.
Epworth Villa residents can enjoy the freedom and independence of cottage style living, or settle into an apartment-style unit with an attached bathroom and kitchenette. Seniors have the option of caring for themselves, or they can utilize housekeeping and dining services. Residents without a car can also hop on scheduled transportation to ride to nearby shopping, dining and entertainment.
Many Methodist retirement communities offer a continuum of care for residents who find that their health is declining over the years. Epworth Villa offers assisted living options for seniors who need help with daily living activities such as bathing, grooming and dressing. Assisted living residents also have access to nutritionally balanced homemade meals that meet their unique dietary needs and restrictions. Game nights, exercise classes and church services keep seniors active as they receive care. The Commons in the nearby city of Enid and the Oklahoma Methodist Manor, located in just over an hour away in Tulsa, also offer both independent and assisted living options for Oklahoma City seniors.
Epworth Villa, along with The Commons and the Oklahoma Methodist Manor, all offer specialized memory care units. Trained and caring staff members keep dementia patients safe, comfortable and secure at all hours of the day. Individualized treatment programs help each memory care resident to maintain their health and their dignity as they age.
Seniors who need temporary or transitional care after a hospital visit can find it at Epworth Villa. Licensed nursing and therapy teams coordinate to create a treatment plan for healing patients. The Oklahoma Methodist Manor and The Commons also offer one-on-one rehabilitative care for geriatric patients. The goal of short-term nursing care in all of these facilities is to facilitate a quick, easy recovery and get patients back home to their families as soon as possible.
Seniors who suffer from lifelong physical or mental disabilities may require permanent, full-time care. The nursing staff at Epworth Villa is able to provide 24/7 care for a spectrum of health issues affecting Oklahoma City seniors, from Parkinson’s to Alzheimer’s disease. The Commons also offers round the clock support for seniors suffering from cardiac disease, diabetes, cancer and other health concerns.
Methodist retirement communities throughout Oklahoma City and the surrounding area host events and activities that help seniors to stay socially and physically active, including movie showings, shopping trips and excursions into town. The United Methodist Health Care Center in the nearby city of Clinton also provides social support for seniors through scheduled events such as church services, meet & greets and game nights.
