Memory Care

Sun City Helping Hands

Here is who to contact if you want to borrow something:

For items kept at the Legacy Hills Storage area, contact:
John Viers (512) 639-0262 *He prefers a call/text rather than an email
Kathy Davis (907) 351-8872
Cle Alexander (316) 990-4245

Shirley Worth (N30) (512) 943-4110 Shirley keeps some medical equipment and baby items at her home and you can borrow from there.

Here are some things to consider:

  • Don't wait till your guests arrive or you are bringing your patient home from the hospital to arrange for equipment. You want it at the house and ready to go.
  • You don't have to reserve items, but it may be best to call and make sure they have the item you need available to borrow. You can reserve an item a bit ahead of time, but pick it up a couple of days before you need it.
  • They are working on a list of items at Legacy and Shirley's home, but it is not available yet.
  • The items are sanitized when returned...someone donated funds to purchase a sanitizer.
