The Food Allergy Support Group will discuss steps that parents can take to assemble their child's team and prepare for the upcoming school year.

Got music? Share your talents with Northfield Hospice

Got music? Share your talents with Northfield Hospice

Music is a powerful tool for those at the end of life. Music can help to ease pain, comfort caregivers, serve as a tool for life review, and just bring a smile to someone’s face.

One of the most common requests from Northfield Hospice patients is someone to share music with them.

If you make music, [or simply like to listen,] you’re invited to volunteer with hospice patients.

Volunteers commit to one hour per week or more. Most volunteers see one patient per week, spending 30-60 minutes in the patient’s home.
