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

gray quotes smallOne early evening as I was taking a walk around Sunland the lights were on in the Sun Room. I looked in to see a nurse helping a patient with her dinner. The scene was so lovely, the patience and care obvious, and smiles. I feel comfortably at home living at Sunland. My joy is full.

gray quotes smallMy dear friends, I want to thank you for the joy of staying at Sunland this past weekend. I was in need of a quiet place to pray and study, and you provided it. I truly felt the healing Christ expressed by every staff member. Thank you all for making my stay absolutely perfect in every way, with deepest gratitude.

I rejoice in the healing of the physical belief, of course, but most importantly is the change of thought that took place due to uninterrupted days of deep study of the Bible and our dear Leader’s writings – a priceless gift!

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 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.
