I think you have a good chance of a useful response in the Oklahoma forum.
My aunt was recently a hospice patient in rural Oklahoma.
Her mother and before that her father were in a home that transitioned from board and care to nursing home as the resident needed. Her mother attended her daughters 50th wedding anniversary. Died at age 202 just before the 60th.
I don't know the pay but the care was supurb.
And the staff seemed to really like each other.
