Jonathan Maynard Parmenter went beyond all expectations to provide health care for his neighbors, and it is our obligation to continue his legacy. All of us — staff, trustees, volunteers — seek ways in which we can “do anything and everything necessary” to care for and enhance the lives of all the people of our community. Aside from in home nursing care, Hospice care and bereavement support, we offer:
Special Events at Parmenter
- Plaque Dedication
Every June we remember those who have been honored or memorialized by gifts of $1000 or more in the previous year. We hold a gathering and reception on a Sunday afternoon late in June.
- Annual Service of Remembrance
In September, we offer an interfaith, ecumenical gathering open to all with music, prayers, readings, candle-lighting and a reading of the year’s names from the Book of Remembrance.
Clergy may be the first point of contact to identify resources for those in need of long term, palliative or Hospice care. Every year we reach out to the clergy in our area to offer educational programs and, for new clergy to the area, an opportunity to learn more about Parmenter.
- Lights of Remembrance
Purchase a symbolic light "in honor of" or "in memory of" a loved one and have your loved one listed in our Lights of Remembrance Memory Keepsake Book. The lights will remain lit throughout the winter months - please visit any time.
- Holiday Concert
The Holiday Concert held at the Weston Golf Club is a wonderful seasonal event that benefits the Hospice . The program, the luncheon and the company are truly something to look forward as the days shorten. It is a festive event not to be missed!
