About Our Founder
Hugh Henderson began his hospice career in 1992 as a Social Worker and Counselor with a local hospice provider in Atlanta. He has spent the greater part of the last 25 years of serving in leadership positions with both regional and national hospice companies. After eventually coming to the conclusion that optimal quality in hospice can best achieved at the local level, Mr. Henderson decided to open Capstone Hospice in 2015.
Mr. Henderson holds a Master’s Degree in Community Counseling from Georgia State University and a Bachelor’s degree in Educational Psychology from the University of Georgia. He and his wife, Karen, have been happily married for 26 years and have three children, ages 23, 20, and 17. Hugh and his family attend Perimeter Church in Johns Creek, where Mr. Henderson serves as an Elder. When not fulfilling his career-long passion for hospice, Hugh enjoys spending time with his family, playing tennis and college football.
What Is a “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, in the case of a hospice patient, a lifetime. Capstone allows patients and families to put “the final stone” in place as a monument to the value and worth of the life lived by each hospice patient.
The word “capstone” is also a biblical reference found in the book of Psalms (118:22) emphasizes Capstone’s values-based approach to care and desire to have a positive impact on all we serve.
