About Us

You may be wondering where the name, Veraden comes from. Veraden comes from the combination of 2 words, vermillion which represents the color red in the state flower and celadon which is a jewel that symbolizes the fact that Edmond is known as the “jewel of Oklahoma.” We are The Veraden.
The Veraden is part of the Sagora Senior Living communities which have become synonymous with excellent residential alternatives for seniors. Our focus on serving our residents, meeting their needs, and exceeding their wants defines the Veraden lifestyle.
