Stein Hospice in New Jersey

Fulfilling the promise… to promote the best possible quality of life with compassionate end-of-life care.

Traditional Jewish values celebrate life… and call for the community to respect and care for those at the end of life. In keeping with these values, Stein Hospice offers central NJ compassionate, individualized hospice care to patients experiencing a life-limiting illness and support to their families. With a focus on making each day meaningful for the patients we serve, our team of hospice professionals work to relieve pain and suffering and to address the unique physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of each patient and his or her loved ones and caregivers. We serve Somerset, Middlesex, Monmouth and Union counties in New Jersey.

As the first and only non-profit Jewish organization to provide hospice care in central New Jersey, our care is based on traditional religious values that:

  • affirm the dignity of life;
  • call for visiting and caring for the sick (bikur cholim and shituf bi-tza’ar);
  • promote respect for those who have passed away (kavod hamet); and
  • help to comfort the living (nihum avelim).

We believe that the end of life should be spent in an environment that provides the greatest comfort and sense of emotional well-being. Our professional hospice team and our trained volunteers serve patients wherever they call home — whether it is a house, apartment, another private residence, assisted living facility or a nursing home.
