Built in 1999, Chisholm Trail Assisted Living is the only family owned and operated assisted living center in Duncan, OK. The construction of the building itself was a father & son endeavor between owner/administrator, Dustin Cox, and his father, Rex. Dustin's wife, Dr. Demetra Cox, is the Medical Director for Chisholm Trail Assisted Living. Both Dustin and Demetra are passionate about senior care and the ever changing needs of the elderly.

The biggest differences between these two types of senior housing centers revolve around medical services provided, physical plant of each community, and the cost.
Residents in nursing homes require around the clock care and monitoring. They typically live with more complex health care conditions that require the assistance of a skilled nurse or physical or speech therapist. Some residents also require respiratory care services.
By contrast, residents in an assisted living community generally require custodial care. It might be a person who lives with memory loss and isn't safe living alone. Or an adult with mobility problems who needs a little help transferring from their bed to their favorite chair.
One obvious difference when you tour both a nursing home and an assisted living community is their appearance. While a nursing care center generally looks somewhat institutional because of the type of care provided, an assisted living usually resembles an upscale apartment community. Nursing home residents are more likely to share a room with another senior. Residents in an assisted living community usually have their own apartment or suite and a more home like environment.
Medicare does not pay for Assisted Living. The majority of our residents are private pay. Payment is due, in full, at the beginning of the month of occupancy. Assistance is available for filing long term care claims, if applicable.
Our spacious studio apartments come equipped with a microwave, mini-fridge, walk-in showers, and personal heat & air units. Rates are all-inclusive with the exception of telephone service.

“My mom had been in two different facilities before we were able to get her into Chisholm Trail Assisted Living. It is by far the best facility in the area. It is a beautiful building and her room is SO nice! We have peace of mind knowing she is being well cared for. She loves it there! I also love the facebook posts. Our family and friends can see all of the fun she is having."
“I didn’t know what to do about my health issues and could no longer live on my own. My husband had passed away, my girls are both grown and have busy lives of their own. I'm so grateful for Chisholm Trail Assisted Living. They are friendly, professional, and they really care.”
“If you are looking for some compassionate, caring people, this is the team I highly recommend. Their friendliness and professionalism is what I love about them."
