Bringing comfort and peace to those we serve by providing a qualitatively distinct hospice experience.
We believe in a values-based approach to hospice care.
Capstone Hospice serves patients and families within a 50-mile radius of Peachtree Corners, Georgia. Our care is provided primarily in a patient’s private residence, thus meeting the desire of most Americans to die at home surrounded by family and loved ones. Services are often provided in an assisted living facility, personal care home, or nursing home. In essence, Capstone Hospice wishes to recapture the spirit of the original hospice movement — local providers providing exceptional care to the local community in a home-based setting.
Capstone provides competent, well-trained, experienced staff who pride themselves on compassion and responsiveness. Our hospice program provides 24-hour, seven-day-a-week, on-call services to answer questions, help to resolve problems and/or visit at the patient’s bedside. An expert is on duty around the clock.

In addition to providing compassionate medical care and pain management, we offer emotional and spiritual support to patients and their loved ones.
Our skilled nurses are available 24 hours a day. Certified Nursing Assistants can assist with personal care needs such as bathing, dressing and skin care. Our Hospice Physician oversees the care delivered to each patient.
Capstone Hospice provides all medications, durable medical equipment (hospital beds, wheelchairs, etc.) and disposable supplies (gloves, pads, etc.) associated with an individual’s hospice care and ordered by the hospice team.
Capstone’s licensed social workers are trained counselors and assist patients and families in coping with the stresses of serious illness. Social workers may also assist in securing community resources when necessary.
Our experienced chaplains meet patients and families where they are on their spiritual journey. Using one’s existing faith framework, our chaplains facilitate spiritual comfort and peace.
Capstone’s trained volunteers offer ongoing practical assistance and emotional support to patients and family members.
Why Consider Hospice?
- Involvement of experienced and skilled personnel allows family members to be just that –family members – and not healthcare providers.
- Improved symptom and pain management.
- Increased quality of life as a result of the decreased need for visits back and forth to the doctor’s office or hospital.
Hugh Henderson, CEO of Capstone Hospice, explains the hospice difference.
How Is Capstone Hospice Different?
Identifying and retaining talent congruent with our culture is our highest value. We carefully screen and only select staff members who have a proven passion and desire to go the extra mile for our patients.
We seek to glorify God with the way we deliver our care. Capstone Hospice wants everyone we care for and come in contact with to feel respected and to recognize an unmistakable positive difference in the people associated with our organization.
Locally Owned and Operated
Immediate access to key decision-makers makes us nimble in our responsiveness to customer requests.
Our owner has over 25 years of experience in the hospice business. Our motive is simply to capitalize on that experience by building a better model and culture of hospice service delivery. All of our nurses are (or are required to become) hospice and palliative care certified (CHPN) as condition of employment.

About Our Name: Why Capstone?
In architectural terms, the capstone is the final fixture put in a place on any constructed edifice– the “crowning achievement,” so to speak, of a building or institution. In the case of the hospice patient, Capstone Hospice allows patients and families to put their “final stone” in place as a monument to the value and worth of a life well-lived.
