Sharp HospiceCare Support Services
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.
Bereavement care services
Bereavement services help you learn effective ways to cope with grief and loss, and return to a focus on living.
Bereavement support groups
Our skilled staff of mental health professionals specializes in bereavement and aims to increase community awareness about grieving. Several free support groups are offered.

Several integrative therapies are offered to help ease the symptoms related to the patient's disease or condition and are performed by specially trained and certified staff.
