In the last decade, there have been roughly a dozen requests to various mailing lists for a feature along those lines. Usually, but not always, it is related to dictionary construction.

The workarounds I'm aware of, have placed either the first word of the first new paragraph, or the first word of the last paragraph of the previous page, in the page header.

One workaround also managed to place the last word of the page in the header field, but it required:
* Triple Spacing between paragraphs;
* Manually setting things for every page;
* Manually changing things every time there was any textual _or_ formatting changes anywhere in the document;

I just glanced through the "fields" dialogs and nothing jumped out at me.

It is done by a combination of styles, and outline headers.
(Incidentally this use case is one of the reasons why there should LibO should allow users to construct more than ten levels of headers.)
