Learn more about why in-home hospice care is different

Federal law requires all hospices to provide the same set of services. How then, does one identify the qualitative differences between hospices, and why a Jewish Hospice makes all the difference? Weinstein Hospice cares for non-Jewish patients; however, as a Jewish Hospice, we possess a built-in recognition of the cultural nuances, collective histories, and sensibilities many Jewish people share.

We know the Jewish calendar, traditions and rituals, and have Russian and Hebrew-speaking staff. While we have no preference, agenda or beliefs about any particular Jewish practice or lack thereof, we appreciate that secular and non-secular Jews have often sought out Jewish-identified community, providers, and businesses. We believe that end-of-life care should include that same cultural comfort zone and institutional support.

Hospice Care at Home

  • 24/7 lifeline for nursing and social work support
  • Built-in sensitivity to Jewish ritual and traditions
  • Our professional staff have many years of experience in hospice care

Frequently Asked Questions

What is hospice care?

Hospice is a concept of care, not a place to die. We neither hasten nor prolong death, rather we affirm life. Our personalized services and caring community aid families in allowing their loved ones to end their lives in a satisfactory manner.

Who makes up our team?

Our team comprises of professionals ranging from a medical director, hospice director and nurses to social workers, counselors and a chaplain. Our status as a nonprofit also provides us with compassionate, well-trained volunteers.

Who pays for it?

Patients and families do not pay directly for care from Weinstein Hospice. We accept Medicare/Medicaid and most private insurance plans. Weinstein Hospice is also supported by generous gifts from our community. No one is turned away due to an inability to pay.

Who can make a referral?

Our referrals may come from any source, but commons sources include physicians, Synagogues/Churches, hospitals, case managers, and even friends and families.

Why Weinstein Hospice

Patients per Nurse Ratio

Weinstein Hospice has a 1:10 nurse to patient ratio while other hospices average a 1:15 ratio.

Our Nurses are able to see patients TWICE as often versus other hospices

Patient per Social Worker Ratio

Weinstein Hospice has a 1:17 social worker to patient ratio while other hospices average a 1:26 ratio.

Our Social Workers are able to see patients TWICE as often versus other hospices

Use of Compounded Medications

Compounded medications are “made from scratch” to provide the exact strength and dosage needed by the patient. They are more expensive for us, we put patient needs first.

COST does not drive our medication decisions, the needs of our patients do.
