- Why Choose Sharp?
The Peer Support Advisor Program is a mentoring program designed to help individuals with disabilities adjust to the challenges of everyday life by connecting them with others who have successfully assimilated through this ongoing journey. The program connects individuals with disabilities with Peer Support Advisors who share common interests, experiences, skills and challenges.
Peer Support Advisors are Sharp HealthCare volunteers. They have received specialized training to hone their mentoring skills, and they make regular rounds to visit with patients currently at Sharp Rehabilitation Center. They are also available to work with individuals with disabilities in the community.
As a second level of participation, Peer Support Volunteers are also available to provide support to patients, families and community members as needed. This group of individuals possesses the same desire to give back to individuals as Peer Support Advisors do, but are available only on an as-needed basis to provide support or guidance in a specific area of expertise.
The Peer Support Advisor Program is available to current and former Sharp Rehabilitation Center patients as well individuals with disabilities throughout San Diego.
