Do you love music? So do our patients and their families! We welcome music volunteers whether you are:
- a trained music therapist
- an accomplished musician

- or just love to listen to music!
Music can bring joy to those who are lonely, peace to those who are struggling, and connection to those who are isolated.
Can you share your talents and your compassion with our amazing patients and their families?
We provide extensive training, mentoring and on-going support. Visits can easily be arranged around your schedule and other commitments.
Our incredible, locally-owned non-profit organization was founded in Lowell in 1909 in response to the City's high infant mortality rate and work injuries in the textile mills, by the visionary women of the Lowell Guild and the Middlesex Women's Club. We began with two nurses, who walked throughout Lowell to bring treatment and teaching to families struggling with disease or injury, and to new mothers. In addition to caring for the sick and injured, we provided well baby clinics and new mothers' clubs, milk stations to distribute uncontaminated milk for children, and immunization clinics as new vaccines were developed. We were credited with lowering the City's infant mortality rate, and with increasing the health knowledge of families struggling with low income and overcrowded housing.
Through the years, our service area was broadened to Greater Lowell, Greater Lawrence and southern New Hampshire. Rehabilitation therapists, social workers and home health aides joined nurses as members of the clinical team. Our hospice program began in 1983. We have been providing care through events that changed local, national, world and medical history, such as disasters, epidemics, the arrival of successive waves of immigrants, the Depression years, world wars and returning veterans, the creation of Medicare and Medicaid, growth of health insurance companies, the advancements of technology and the many changes in health care knowledge and treatment over the last century.
A visionary organization dedicated to improving the lives of those in our community founded and run by dedicated caregivers determined to make a lasting difference.
Come join our amazing community and see why our volunteers AVERAGE 8 years in service with us - and several more than 20 years! We look forward to hearing from you!
