Erin Engelke is the Chief External Relations Officer for Sunbeam Family Services, one of the longest serving nonprofits in Oklahoma, where she manages fundraising, marketing, public relations and volunteer programs. Sunbeam Family Services has been a vital support to individuals & families in the community. In 1907, founder Lizzie Swisher saw a need for a children’s home in her community. With basket in hand, Lizzie & a group of women went door-to-door in their historic Heritage Hills and Mesta Park neighborhoods, asking their peers for financial support. That passion to provide safe housing for homeless boys & girls spread, and their efforts raised enough funds to build a children’s home.

Listen in to find out about CareTrak and these women’s part in this amazing technology available in our community.

Both Tracy & Sylvia’s hearts have been in the rescue service of animals for as long as they both have lived. Tracy & Sylvia view the precious pet as the client and when a client comes in with their owner … The client and owner are individually shown the lay out of the salon that the dog/client will be go through during his or her spa treatment … much like how you and I are treated at our own salon appointments. The client is bathed, hand blow dried immediately after bathing and then hand delivered to the groomer. Once your pet (Groomer A Go Go’s client) has been placed in Sylvia or Tracy’s hands, they are followed through from start to finish and the owner is notified that their pet has completed their spa experience at Groomer A Go Go. A full service pet salon, healthy pet food, treats for dogs & cat foods along with some of the most unique pet accessories, I have ever laid my eyes & hands on. Oh & Yes, they now have the Pet CBD Oils & Treats that are a Natural Healthy approach for a myriad of pet issues. Groomer A Go Go is the only place my doggies (Tippy & Sadie) will ever go … which needs to be your family’s plan as well … You (I Promise) will be singing their praises as well.

Guest in studio: Marilyn Olson, Executive Director of VillagesOKC
Marilyn Olson, a native of Oklahoma City, Marilyn Olson is an Educator, Businesswoman and Caregiver Coach. She began as a teacher then spending a decade in advertising before spending more than 30 years in the healthcare, retirement, nursing home and assisted living industries. Her passion is to be a help to the caregiver.
Her experience includes opening ten retirement communities several of which are in the greater Oklahoma City area. Most recently she accepted the position of Executive Director for VillagesOKC. “It is NOT a Place – It is a PLAN!
As a member of the “over-fifty-five club” herself, she knows full well the demands of the sandwich generation. Marilyn and her husband Jim keep their interests in multiple worlds by staying involved in the lives of her 102 year old mother along with, three grown children and ten grandchildren.
Her humorous yet practical style has made her a favorite of adults and teens. She says the challenges of aging are nothing new “because we’ve made it through childhood, teen years and middle adult life – and it’s basically all the same.”
VillagesOKC –It is NOT a Place … It is a PLAN-VillagesOKC! What is It? AGAIN – It is a Plan … NOT a Place! We are going to Age but we do not have to be old! VillagesOKC is a group of like-minded people in a geographic area who stay in their own homes that come together to figure out and develop the resources they will need to age comfortably. The VillagesOKC Concept embraces bringing services to people rather than moving people to services. The first “Village” Concept — Beacon Hill “Village” in Boston — began more than a decade ago when a few aging friends and neighbors joined forces to create a way for them to “age at home” and remain independent as long as possible. There are now nearly 300 “Villages” Concepts nationwide. “We are taking matters into our own hands and creating organizations for ourselves that essentially allow us to remain in our homes are as long as possible.”
Listen to the Rise & Thrive OSJ Radio Hour this Saturday’s at 9:05am to learn more on this exciting new way to Age-in-Place Confidently, Safely & in your own neighborhood!
