Services-002Christian Science Nursing care — Services

(Levels 1 and 2): For students of Christian Science who require substantial assistance, including spiritual nurturing, feeding, bed care, bathing, commoding, cleansing and dressing of wounds, skilled oversight/observation, or special nourishment.

(Levels 3A & 3B Sheltered Care): For students of Christian Science who currently need lighter assistance with personal care and activities of daily living, and would benefit from a sheltered, nurturing, Christian healing environment.

(Level 4 – Progressive Living): For students of Christian Science who are in large measure independent, but currently need freedom from everyday tasks in order to support physical healing and/or spiritual regeneration, are dedicating themselves to a regime of daily prayer, and can benefit from oversight and occasional assistance with tasks such as bathing or dressing. Progressive Living is not retirement living — it is a light form of Christian Science Nursing designed to support individuals who are in the process of healing and are transitioning out of the facility, or who are working to overcome the claims of age.

Christian Science Nursing care at Glenmont includes three meals daily, housekeeping, laundry, participation in the activities program, on-site church services, and telephone service (including long distance calls within the 48 continental states). All rooms are singles (but some share a large bath with an adjoining room).

Family members are welcome to support their loved ones and can even stay overnight at Glenmont if space is available.
