All Christian Science Nursing Care guests receive the following services, if needed:

  • Daily dressing and grooming
  • Bathing

  • Minor food modification
  • Gentle reminders

All guests receive the following services:

In addition, Christian Science Nurses lovingly attend to the practical needs of those who are having difficulty eating or retaining food, breathing, moving about, who are confined to bed, have any kind of wound, or are overcoming the effects of a fall. Therefore the advanced levels of care for patients under Christian Science Nursing Care may receive assistance in one or more of the following areas. (Medicare coverage may be available for these services.)

  • Full bed care
  • Preparation of special meals and nourishment, including food modification
