LIVE THE GOOD LIFE AT ELKWOOD
Elkwood of Elk City, Oklahoma, is a premier residential community offering Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Memory Care lifestyle options. Our community allows residents to experience graduated levels of care as a smooth transition when needs change, and our caring staff are here to ensure that every day is a fulfilling one. We would love for you to visit us with your family and loved ones and see Elkwood for yourself!
LIVE AT YOUR OWN PACE
There’s plenty to do at Elkwood, where each resident’s wants and needs are carefully tended to in an atmosphere dedicated to the closeness of family and friends. Residents enjoy relaxing on the outdoor patio after meals in the elegant dining room, where our chef prepares fresh, home cooked meals in a restaurant-like setting. We also have an indoor swimming pool, fitness room, spa, library, and more. Whether you’re feeling active or just want to relax, there’s a place for you at Elkwood.
INDEPENDENCE, JUST FOR YOU
Whatever you’re looking for, one of our apartment options is sure to suit your needs perfectly. We offer residents customized care plans, so they can enjoy timesaving amenities and social activities as much as they like. Each member of our community enjoys the opportunity to live life their own way, receiving assistance when required and freedom when desired. We offer medication management, bathing, laundry services, housekeeping, healthy snacks, activities, and transportation. Local attractions near Elkwood include Ackley Park and the Route 66 Museum.
Our state-of-the-art, remodeled Elk City Memory Care center offers residents coping with Alzheimer’s and Dementia an opportunity to reside, dine, and enjoy activities in a supportive atmosphere unlike any other. Staffed by experienced and passionate caregivers, Elkwood’s Memory Care community promotes dignity and independence in a loving and caring environment.
CARE THAT’S ALWAYS THERE
With separate Elk City Assisted Living and Memory Care communities, Elkwood is also ideal for aging in place without disrupting residents’ lives with a move. Our Elk City Memory Care and Assisted Living residents and residents’ families receive valuable peace of mind knowing that licensed nursing staff is available 24 hours a day and an emergency call response and security system is in place for residents with dementia. Prior to moving in we speak with you and your physician to find just the right level of assistance that will allow you to enjoy your independence to the fullest. Together, we will compose an Individual Service Plan (ISP) to guide us in assisting you. Nurses and resident assistants are always available to assist with medication administration and the activities of daily life. Our mission is to provide a lifestyle that fosters independence, actively engages the mind, invigorates the body and nurtures the spirit while offering you and your loved ones the peace of mind you deserve.
WORRY-FREE LIFESTYLE WITH JUST A SIMPLE LEASE
While some communities insist on new residents putting down huge, non-refundable payments up-front, we like to do things a little differently. We care about not only the physical and emotional well-being of our residents, but their financial health as well. That’s why we offer our residents all the perks of country club living without the expensive buy-in—just a simple lease. We have six Independent Living cottages, and we have 16 apartment homes in Memory Care. For Assisted Living, we have 14 studio apartments, two 2-bedroom apartments, and 32 one bedroom apartments. Further detail regarding floor plans, amenities, and more can be found along the sidebar to the left.
Dining at Elkwood Assisted Living
Live Well, Dine Well
Allow our professionally trained service staff to present you with delicious dishes made from locally sourced ingredients for breakfast, lunch and dinner. At Senior Lifestyle, dining is an integral part of the resident experience, and we do everything we can to delight you with a personalized dining experience.
Dining Directors and Executive Chefs meet with residents to discuss and incorporate enhancements to the menu, special requests, favorite recipes or foods, and unless otherwise specified by state regulations we offer therapeutic diets such as reduced concentrated sweets, mechanical soft and purée. Residents can select healthy, locally sourced options based on the nutritional information, or they can simply opt to choose their favorites. And we always encourage residents and relatives to make special arrangements when expecting a family visit!

STOP DREAMING—START DOING!
Senior Living communities thrive because many of our residents are curious, interesting individuals who love to collaborate with their neighbors and our staff. They consistently make brilliant suggestions for interesting new programs and clubs, which we are more than happy to make a reality. We empower every resident to continue to grow, connect, move, and create at their own pace.
Executive Bio for Elkwood Assisted Living
Julie has worked in the senior care industry for more than four years. Her favorite part about her role as Executive Director has been spending time with residents and listening to their stories. “Our residents make our community special,” Julie says. “Most of our residents were farmers from around the area, so they know the values of hard work and community. Our nursing staff lives up to these values every day, providing excellent care in a safe environment. We also like to keep things festive during the holidays and provide a warm and cozy environment all year round.” For fun, Julie enjoys refurbishing old furniture, home decorating, camping, and spending time with her family.
Julie is excited for you to experience Elkwood for yourself!
