Restoring Dignity, Supporting Friendship, and Maintaining Stability

Sunbeam’s Senior Services consists of volunteer opportunities to serve seniors, support groups for caregivers and grandparents who are raising their grandchildren, and respite for caregivers. This program encourages independence and self-sufficiency by helping Oklahoma seniors stay active in their lives, connect to their communities, support aging in place, and find permanent housing.

  • Senior Volunteer Engagement Program -​ Are you feeling socially isolated? Do you want to give back to our community? Our new Senior Engagement Volunteer Program matches volunteers with vulnerable seniors due to age or illness providing well-being checks to ensure our older adult residents are safe, being cared for, and are not feeling socially isolated. Our aim is to encourage independence and self-sufficiency by helping Oklahoma seniors stay active in their lives, connected to their communities, and more likely able to age in place. Anyone age 60+ is eligible to receive this support. If you are looking for a way to give back to our community, you enjoy connecting with people, spending time with seniors, and have the availability to give about 1.5-hours per week to visit with an older person, we need you!
