The Parmenter Foundation is a nonprofit  organization that seeks to provide hope and support for MetroWest community members of all ages in need of compassionate end-of-life care or bereavement support.

Vikki Levine has worked in the home care industry for over eight years and has learned that home care services are essential to the overall wellness of family members and primary caregivers. She has been a part of incredible moments of care and empathy with many families. As the need for home care services increases in the future, Vikki hopes to be an educator and resource for her community and for families looking for compassionate care in their homes.
