We provide comfort and the highest quality hospice care at home to people confronting life-limiting and end-of-life illnesses and their families. Spiritual, emotional, and medical support that reflects the traditional Jewish concern for the personal dignity and uniqueness of each human life is provided. Consistent with the Jewish belief that hospitality is a value, we welcome any patient and their family, people of the Jewish faith, any other faith, or no faith at all.

Weinstein Hospice is a small, not-for-profit with a very high staff to patient ratio that has a profound impact on the amount of time and individual attention we give to our patients. Our non-profit status enables us to keep our caseload small and serve families other hospices would turn away. We believe wholeheartedly in the power of the individual, the importance of relationships and the value of respect and dignity to everyone at every stage of life. Our goal is to create a positive difference in every patient’s day, to make a personal connection and to create memorable moments that enrich the lives of each of our patients and their families.

PROGRAM 1End-Of-Life Care for Cancer Patients in Cobb County
To help meet the acute care needs of cancer patients receiving hospice care from Weinstein Hospice. Out of almost 200 hospice organizations in Georgia, Weinstein Hospice is one of only a handful of non-profit hospices. Due to the very high cost of care for cancer patients, hospices in our state often have conflicting goals; To maximize profit and provide good patient care. Often, these two goals are at odds with one another. Physicians and hospitals in the Atlanta area refer more cancer patients to us than to other hospices, relative to our size. In order to care for more cancer patients with higher acuity to OUR standard (not just Medicare bare-minimums), we keep our nurse to patient ratios lower than most hospices to provide longer or more frequent visits as needed. Our pharmacy costs are notably higher for patients with end-stage cancer as well, because we often use compounded medications which are significantly more expensive to use. Why and how do we do it? Because we raise the money to provide the highest quality care needed, we don’t keep it.
