Ohr Ami

Ohr Ami, the Hebrew phrase that means "Light of My People," is the name of The Jewish Hospice Program. We are pleased to be the first hospice program in San Diego County specifically dedicated to the needs and concerns of the Jewish community.

Hospice is a unique program dedicated to providing medical, emotional and spiritual support to patients and families during the final months of life. Hospice professionals work in coordination with the patient, their personal physician, family and caregivers, providing pain management, symptom relief and other services to enhance quality of life.

As in all hospice care, the Jewish Hospice Program respects the dignity of life. We honor the mandate to cherish life and live every day to its fullest. Our goal is to ensure that each day is full of the certainty that you and your family are being well cared for during this time.

Ohr Ami provides services that are rooted in an understanding and appreciation of Judaism and Jewish life. We are blessed to have a rabbi who provides the spiritual care for each patient and serves as the Rabbinic Director of the program. Our professional team has been educated in the religious traditions and culture of Judaism and the Jewish people. They are familiar with the unique needs and concerns of Jewish patients and their families, and are appreciative of and sensitive to the diversity of Jewish expression within the Jewish community.

Ohr Ami The Jewish Hospice Program is presented by LightBridge Hospice & Palliative Care. The LightBridge mission is to assist our patients to move through the last stages of their lives with grace, strength, and hope.

LightBridge Hospice & Palliative Care is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of HealthCare Organizations.
