Make a Difference: Become a Virtual Volunteer

Volunteer

AARP will be advocating for older Oklahomans at the capitol and is seeking volunteers to virtually reach out to state lawmakers. The Legislature will be back in session in Oklahoma City on Monday, Feb. 1. 

Due to the economic fallout from the pandemic, lawmakers will likely have to deal with significant budget shortfalls. But AARP Oklahoma will push for improvements in nursing homes, including additional personal protective equipment for staff, improved COVID-19 testing and access to safe visitation options for residents. 

In recent years, AARP and its volunteers have successfully supported a series of nursing home reforms.

AARP will also fight to protect access to home- and community-based services and senior nutrition, among other priorities important to older adults.
