Levels of Care
Christian Science nursing is based on a Christian foundation of understanding that healing is possible through God’s love of all of His children. Christian Science nurses demonstrate this tender care of God for His creation through the presence of their spiritual reassurance and attending to physical needs.
Sheltered Living at Sunland Home provides an uplifting sense of community with others actively engaged in the study and practice of Christian Science. Staffed by Christian Science nurses, Sheltered Living provides:
- The comfort of spiritual joy and friendship
- Light assistance to those needing a supportive environment
- A vibrant atmosphere with convenient access to San Diego’s abundant cultural and outdoor offerings
- A spectrum of daily activity
Housed in the East Wing of our lovely coastal inspired building, each resident of the Sheltered Living community has a private bedroom, bath, and small patio. Residents may wish to bring familiar furniture and linens or perhaps just a favorite chair. Others may desire a simple move to an attractive, fully furnished residence.
An inviting garden room for dining, relaxation, and group activities as well as a charming outdoor courtyard are included. As a resident of the Sheltered Living community, one is encouraged to be as independent as possible. Christian Science nurses continually assess needs and provide light care including assistance with bathing and dressing. Weekly housekeeping and laundry services are provided.
