The Ozona Chamber of Commerce recognizes Interim Hospice of San Angelo as our Business of the Month
Interim Hospice of San Angelo was opened in 2010 by the Bullard family, Jason, Jim and Jennifer, with every intention of serving the community. “We saw a hospice need to serve patients and families. We found our niche in offering our care to these rural areas and surrounding communities.” said CEO Jennifer Bullard. “There are many benefits of hospice that people do not know about. Hospice is centered around an individual’s life goals. We use an interdisciplinary team that includes: medical director, hospice physician, skilled nurses, social worker, chaplain, CNA’s and volunteers. We understand the significances some of these illnesses have on not only the patient, but their family as well,” Jennifer continued. “We do everything we can to offer support to them as well. Our goal and our success is in keeping patients where they want to be. Everyone has their own journey. I am extremely proud of the hard work we have put in for San Angelo and the surrounding communities.”

If there is anyone in Ozona who plays a musical instrument, we are always looking for volunteers to share their talents. Music really is a love song. It can decrease pain, calm and soothe, stimulate memory and improve lives. Hymns, old folk songs, bluegrass, classic pop and more. Sharing music would make a world of difference to a person nearing the end of life. If you would like to give your love of music as a hospice volunteer call Stacy McGuire
at 944-9800,” said Veronica Fierro.
Volunteer applicants must be at least 18 or have parent's permission to join our teen program. Criminal history, TB, and drug screenings will be conducted prior to entering the volunteer program. Orientation is provided.
