Creekside Residential Living Services
Creekside Residential is a key element in The Leaves' determination to broaden its mission and assist greater numbers of students of Christian Science to successfully deal with the wider variety of challenges confronting them today. It is available to help meet the needs of Christian Scientists’ to continue their demonstration of home in a sheltered, structured environment, with services and activities that would:
Encourage, stimulate and support their quest to continue their study and practice of Christian Science so as to challenge and overcome many aspects of the so-called aging process through spiritual growth, regeneration and healing.
Promote normalcy, filled with engaged interest, vigorous and purposeful activity in an atmosphere free of medical intrusion.
Be safe, attractive, comfortable and affordable and provide freedom from many of the routine cares involved in maintaining homes completely on their own.
