The Parmenter Foundation

Since 1949, the Parmenter name has been associated with compassionate home and hospice care, and known for creating an award-winning children’s bereavement program in MetroWest Massachusetts. Today The Parmenter Foundation is a charitable organization in MetroWest that provides hope and support for our community members who are grieving or in need of compassionate end-of-life care. We provide funding for nonprofit organizations that deliver high quality, innovative bereavement programs and palliative care, and we offer educational and inspirational resources that help our neighbors navigate through the challenging grief process. The Parmenter Foundation is committed to helping MetroWest families build resilience and facilitating their journeys toward healing.

Every day The Parmenter Foundation builds on its legacy of serving the community by bringing HOPE to MetroWest residents and their families during end-of-life and bereavement.

That’s why in 2021 we launched the Empathy in eCommerce campaign, to offer retailers a way to show compassion to their customers who do not wish to be contacted about this holiday.If Father's Day is a difficult time for you, we encourage you to contact retailers and let them know you would like to opt out of their email promotions for the holiday.

This video depicts the powerful healing impact of the E-Motion program in helping our community members who are grieving. E-Motion, a program that exists in partnership with the The Center for Healing and Justice through Sport, combines physical movement, community-building, reflection and shared vulnerability to strengthen resilience and the capacity to cope after a loss. With grant funding from Parmenter, program founder Myra Sack hopes to provide the E-Motion program to sports teams in MetroWest that have suffered a team loss or to help support a team member who has experienced a death in their family. #support #grief #movement #sport#metrowest #metrowestma ...
