- Demonstrate effectiveness and efficiency, and
- Provide a loving, benevolent and nurturing environment
Christian Science Nursing at The Leaves
All levels of inpatient Christian Science nursing care are offered at The Leaves, from the highest skill level to light or sheltered care. Inpatient services at The Leaves include respite care. Visiting Christian Science nursing is offered as staff is available.
The Leaves also offers outpatient Christian Science nursing care for adults, teens and children, as well as Christian Science nursing care in the home (as staff is available), including mother and infant care.
It is important to note that Christian Science nursing exists for the purpose of providing both spiritual nurturing and completely non-medical nursing care to individuals relying solely on Christian Science treatment: i.e., to those working for spiritual healing through their own prayer and that of Christian Science practitioners listed in The Christian Science Journal.
Christian Science nurses employed by The Leaves giving the highest skill level of inpatient Christian Science nursing care (and all outpatient and home care) are listed in The Christian Science Journal. They have completed Christian Science nursing training programs typically comprised of both classroom instruction and on job training of three to four years duration. This training includes introductory, basis, advanced and supervisory Christian Science nursing. Christian Science nurses at The Leaves not yet listed in The Christian Science Journal always work under the direct supervision of Christian Science nurses who are so listed.
Progressive Living at The Leaves
Through its assisted and independent Progressive Living Residential Program, The Leaves offers students of Christian Science pleasant accommodations, meals and activities designed to encourage their continued demonstration of spiritual growth, regeneration and healing as they overcome challenges associated with aging and maintain normal interest and vigor in daily living. Single room, studios, and two-room suites (all with private baths) available.
