Protecting our Elders

Protecting our Elders

Ten percent of IHCRC's annual patient population are ages 65 and up. Another 1,500 are ages 55 to 64. According to the U.S. Census, 14.2% or 6,387 of Tulsa County's population are Native American ages 65+. Elders in Native American societies play a vital role in the preservation of Indian culture. Elders teach younger generations about spirituality and history. They are considered to "wisdom-keepers" and are held in the highest regard.

Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Fourth of July!

The Fourth of July is a great time to get together with family and friends, fire up the grill, and celebrate our nation’s independence. It’s also a great opportunity to get outside and get active. There are plenty of activities to choose from, so there’s no excuse not to get up and move! If you’re looking for something low-key, take a leisurely stroll around your neighborhood or go for a swim at your local pool. If you’re feeling more adventurous, head to the nearest park for a game of frisbee or go hiking/biking on one of the many trails available in Tulsa (Turkey Mountain is our favorite!). So, whether you’re looking to burn some calories or simply want to enjoy the outdoors, make the most of this holiday and get moving!
