Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic Updates from Capstone Hospice
Capstone Hospice gives you, and your loved ones the ability to maximize quality of life — even when it’s hardest.
“Words cannot express the sincere gratitude my family feels for every member of the Capstone Hospice team. The love and support you gave us during an incredibly difficult time will always be remembered.”
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.
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?
- Better care for both your loved one and your family.
- Skilled staff to better manage symptoms and pain.
- Increased quality of life.
Hugh Henderson, CEO of Capstone Hospice, explains the hospice difference.

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.
