Each incoming resident works with one of the community’s compassionate advisers to create an individualized care plan.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: How do I know if the Renaissance of Ponca City is right for me?
At the Renaissance of Ponca City, people are encouraged to live their best life while they receive mild to moderate personal care. The community offers non-medical alternatives to skilled nursing care so people can enjoy their retirement in an active, supportive community instead of a hospital or nursing home.
However, personal care is not suitable for everyone and some people require more care than others to treat their health conditions. If a person requires skilled nursing care, the Renaissance of Ponca City may not be the right choice for senior care. To see if assisted living or independent living communities like the Renaissance are a suitable choice, prospective residents can ask themselves the following questions:
- Are they ambulatory or are they permanently confined to their beds?
- Do they need ongoing medical attention?
- Do they have memory impairments, Alzheimer's or dementia?
- Do they need rehabilitation?
The community vows to take care of people to the best of their ability, and have admission requirements to make sure they can properly treat each resident. If a person does not meet the admission requirements, the community may not be able to guarantee their safety and may suggest alternative residences that better fit their needs.
If a person is non-ambulatory or they are permanently confined to their beds, the Renaissance of Ponca City may not be a suitable choice for senior care. The community’s staff can help residents with mobility issues but they are not equipped to help people who are bedridden. The same principle applies to people who require ongoing skilled nursing care: the community is not licensed to provide medical treatment and may not admit a person who needs daily healthcare services to manage chronic illness or injury.
As for people with Alzheimer's and dementia, whether the Renaissance is a good fit depends on the severity of their memory loss. People with moderate to severe memory impairments may require specialized Alzheimer's care or memory care services to treat their symptoms, which the Renaissance does not offer. The residence does not have a dedicated memory care community or memory care program, meaning other facilities may be a better choice for people with memory loss.
However, residents who develop Alzheimer's disease or dementia as residents can remain living at the community until their symptoms necessitate specialized memory care services. If a person needs help finding a memory care community in the Ponca City area, the residence’s staff are happy to make suggestions and help them find the dementia care program that best suits them.

Q: Does the Renaissance of Ponca City offer short-term care programs for people who receive in-home care?
Yes! The community offers temporary respite care for older adults who usually receive in-home care from a family member. Respite care stays can last up to 30 consecutive days and offer the same personal care services, wellness programs, and amenities to short-term guests as long-term assisted living residents.

Q: How much does the Renaissance of Ponca City cost?
The Renaissance of Ponca City does not charge each resident the same amount for their stay. A person’s floor plan and care routine each factor into their monthly fees. For example, a person who lives alone in a one-bedroom apartment may pay more than a couple who shares a studio unit.
The community assesses a base rental fee for each person that includes their room and board, housekeeping, and meals. As people require additional services, the community charges them accordingly.
