Sunland Home Foundation


Christian Science Nursing Services

Christian Science nursing takes many forms. Sometimes it’s seen in the care shown at home for a family member or other loved one; the compassion expressed for a fellow church member needing some extra assistance; or the inspired, healing thought shared with a neighbor or friend. In fact, you might say Christian Science nursing is seen in the day-to-day activities of each and every one of us as we strive to express more of that Christly spirit which enabled Jesus to heal the wounds and woes of so many.


Here at Sunland, Christian Science nursing takes on a very specific form. As our Mission Statement indicates, we’re here to provide a spiritual sanctuary for those in need of healing and spiritual regeneration. Our role is to furnish the practical care necessary to allow our patients and guests to concentrate wholeheartedly on seeing themselves as God sees them – “…pure and upright, whole and free” (Christian Science Hymnal, Hymn 12). This is accomplished by our maintaining a conveniently located facility and a staff of skilled Christian Science nurses.

If you’re in need of such care, or if you’re a caregiver looking for a respite from the services you’re providing a loved one, we want you to know that Sunland is here to help. We also offer “Rest & Study” for those who do not need Christian Science nursing care but may be looking for a place to get away for a few days of spiritual renewal.


For over 50 years we’ve opened our doors to Christian Scientists, with a warm and friendly staff ready to serve you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call. We would be happy to arrange a personal tour of our facility.

Thank you for your interest in Sunland. And thank you for your support of our healing ministry.
