An innovative living environment for people with life-limiting illnesses.
In communities across America, relatives and friends are caring for loved ones who are chronically ill and at the end stage of a terminal illness. For most, it is an all-consuming responsibility. Sharp’s Homes for Hospice Program offers patients and their families a unique environment that delivers care for patients’ needs in a comfortable home setting.
The Only Place of Its Kind
Sharp's Homes for Hospice — including LakeView Home in La Mesa and ParkView Home in Del Cerro — are the only places of their kind in San Diego, and operate solely to provide care and compassionate support to patients, families and friends dealing with terminal illnesses. The homes offer a serene environment for residents and families to gather and enjoy their time together. The homes are staffed 24 hours a day by licensed nurses, and feature private rooms and semiprivate rooms, spacious living rooms and beautiful gardens.
Homes for Hospice are licensed by the California Department of Health Services. Reimbursement for hospice is generally offered by Medicare, Medi-Cal, private insurance or charity care. Sharp HospiceCare accepts patients based on their health needs, not on their ability to pay.

Third Hospice Home Planned for South Bay
A third hospice house is currently in the works for the South Bay. The home will be approximately 3,200 square feet and will house between four and six patients at one time. A 1.1-acre property in Bonita has been purchased and current plans are to tear down the existing structure in order to build a new home. Completion of the home is planned for spring 2014.
