Prime Timers Austin HELP-Line
The Member Support Committee is pleased to be able announce the establishment of our HELP-Line.
The phone number is (512) 221-1699. When you call that number you will be immediately connected with Voice Mail. The Voice Mail message will instruct you to leave your name, your phone number, the kind of help you require (transportation to doctor’s appointments, shopping, banking, Prime Timers meetings or activities, etc., or a visit from a volunteer at home or in the hospital, etc.), and the date and time you require the help. The more timely advanced notice that you can give us concerning the help you need, the better the chances are that we can provide you with the requested help.
The Voice Mail response you leave will be monitored twice to three times daily, and you will be contacted to let you know that your message has been received. The monitors will contact a Volunteer to provide you with help. The Volunteer will contact you to make final arrangements for the transportation or visitation you require.
Those of us on the Member Support Committee hope that this addition will make it easier for you to receive the support from your fellow members, which will enhance your participation in Prime Timers Austin.
All of us on the Committee are open to any suggestions you might have to improve our support to you, and we hope that this phone service will only be the beginning.
