Junior League volunteers plan and provide respite and relaxation to the parents and caregivers of children at The Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Center. A monthly activity is planned by JLOC volunteers for parents and caregivers, giving them the opportunity to regroup and refocus on themselves in an otherwise stressful time. Activities focus on allowing the parent or caregiver to put their health and wellness first for a short amount of time, recognizing their health is paramount to supporting their ill loved one. JLOC volunteers also provide supervision to the children and patients of these parents, helping occupy them with activities taking place in The Zone at The Children’s Hospital, an area specifically designed and gifted to the Hospital by the JLOC in 2009.
