If you believe at the end of our lives, we should be able to maintain our dignity and bear the least amount of pain, then you already understand Hospice. Our Llano Hospice program provides support and care for persons in the last phases of incurable disease so that they may live as fully and as comfortably as possible. Llano Memorial Hospice exists in the hope and belief that through appropriate care, and the promotion of a caring community sensitive to their needs, patients and their families may be free to attain a degree of mental and spiritual preparation for death that is satisfactory to them.
Why do I want you to know this?
To meet government guidelines, volunteer hours must equal at least 5% of paid staff patient care hours. On that note, Llano Memorial Hospice program is looking for men and women that are interested in making a difference, one person at a time. Can you devote an hour or so each week visiting with one of our patients? Run an errand, spend a bit of time reading to them, maybe walk their pet? If you’re not comfortable visiting with our Hospice patients, there are other ways you can help. Do you sew or crochet or have a special talent to share, maybe play a musical instrument? Your gift of time to make this difficult period in patients and their families lives more endurable is quite possibly the most rewarding volunteer service. We place great value on your precious time.
Llano Memorial Hospice serves Llano, Mason, San Saba and Burnet Counties. Volunteers from every corner of our four counties are needed! It takes a very special person to do this work. Could that person be you?
If you could spare some time to contribute to a most worthwhile endeavor, we need you! Call Jackie at the Llano Hospice office, 325 247-3715 or 1-800-927-9965.
