Posted on 08/31/23 by The AARP Bulletin

Oklahomans overwhelmingly support expanded home care services and more rigorous oversight of nursing homes, according to a recent AARP survey.

AARP polled Oklahoma registered voters 40 and older in 2022. It found that 92 percent of respondents said it was extremely or very important to have services to help them or a loved one stay in their homes for as long as possible.

Also, 91 percent were extremely or very concerned about a loved one being abused or neglected in a nursing home, and 92 percent were extremely or very concerned that nursing homes may not have adequate staff.

The majority of those surveyed also supported increasing nursing home inspections to more than once per year. Stay apprised at aarp.org/ok.
