Oklahoma is the Third Cheapest State for Long-Term Care Costs in 2014

You will have to follow the links to find the details of the study, but I thought it was noteworthy that Oklahoma is the third cheapest state in which to receive long term care.

3. Oklahoma

Average Annual Cost: $37,813

Adult day care: $15,600

Licensed home care: $41,184

Assisted living: $36,978

Nursing home (private room): $57,488

Anecdotally, I can tell you that it is always funny when I receive a phone call from people who live on the east coast but need family home care for their senior adult aged parent(s) in Southeastern Oklahoma.  Typically, those children have asked around to their friends and have an idea of how much care costs.  Then they call us, and have a very hard time containing their excitement over how much cheaper our in-home caregiver rates are than the rates they would have to pay on the east coast.
