SKILLED CHRISTIAN SCIENCE NURSING CARE

Our Skilled Christian Science Nursing program provides a refuge for study and prayer for those relying on Christian Science for healing. Christian Science nurses are on duty 24 hours a day to provide skilled care, support, and assistance with individualized care to meet a variety of needs, such as mobility/activity, communication, comfort, rest, cleanliness, nourishment, and surroundings, including the mental atmosphere conducive to healing. This care may include providing for cleansing and bandaging needs, skilled support and instruction with walking or moving, personal care, assistance with meals, bathing and dressing, or receiving all care in bed. Expectancy of healing is the guiding factor as to the length of stay. Medicare is available for those who meet requirements.

Patients have a private room and bathroom that includes housekeeping and laundry services, and nursing supplies. Delicious meals are lovingly provided and may be modified according to individual needs. Weekly hairdresser services, if desired, are billed separately.

 

A variety of activities are available including informal Sunday and Wednesday church services, Reading Room materials, and online access to Christian Science programs.

 

Patients receiving Skilled Care are required to have daily Christian Science treatment from a Christian Science practitioner of the patient's choice currently listed in The Christian Science Journal. The Christian Science nursing department will assess the care needs of each patient to determine their care level.

 

All who come to Peace Haven for Skilled Care are welcomed and supported each day by the Christian Science nurses and staff with love and expectancy of healing, spiritual growth, and progress.
