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 resiliency 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.
