when facing terminal illness.


We bring together the hospice, health care and social service communities to meet the medical, cultural and spiritual needs of you and your family.

The Carole Jo Lasser z’l Music Program

We are delighted to formally introduce the Carole Jo Lasser, z’l, Music Program. There are currently no other music initiatives in our community for Jewish patients who are critically ill. Carole Jo’s parents, Jacqueline and Myron Milgrom, have generously helped JHCN create this program in her memory.

The Carole Jo Lasser z’l Music Program provides home visits from cantors and musicians, connecting JHCN patients to their Jewish heritage.

Carole’s parents nurtured her passion for music. They encouraged Carole’s musical gifts from the time she sat down at the piano at age seven and quickly discovered she could play by ear. Earning a bachelor’s degree in music at the University of Michigan and an advanced degree in music pedagogy at Schoolcraft College, Carole found her calling as a much sought-after piano teacher and performer.
