We're here when you need us most.
Learn about Sharp's various support services including bereavement and spiritual care.
Advance care planning
This service provides a means to discuss and determine treatment directives, and appoint someone to make health care decisions on your behalf if you are unable to do so. Learn about advance care planning.
Bereavement care services
Bereavement services help you learn effective ways to cope with grief and loss, and return to a focus on living. Learn about bereavement care services.
Bereavement support groups

Our hospice homes are the only place of their kind in San Diego. The homes offer a serene environment for residents and families to gather and enjoy their time together and are fully staffed by nurses. Learn about our hospice homes.
Sharp HospiceCare offers integrative therapies to support people with a life-limiting illness that have decided, with the support of their physician and family members, to forego further curative treatment in favor of comfort measures.
The integrative therapies offered — aromatherapy, gentle reflexology, Healing Touch, reiki, comfort massage for hands and feet, imagery for relaxation and music therapy — are designed to ease the systems related to the patient's disease or condition and are performed by specially trained and certified staff.
These services are applicable to any hospice patient and are provided upon the patient's request or referral from one of the patient's hospice care team members.
Memory Bear Program
To honor your loved ones and provide comfort after loss, our volunteers create handmade memory bears out of cherished garments that once belonged to your loved ones — a favorite blouse, shirt or pajamas. Learn about our Memory Bear Program.
Transitions Advanced Illness Management Program
This program is designed to provide home-based palliative care and management for patients with advanced progressive chronic illness. Learn about our Transitions Advanced Illness Management Program.
We've partnered with the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the Department of Veterans Affairs to bring you the We Honor Veterans program.
We'll help find the doctor who's right for you.
