In-patient Christian Science Nursing

In-patient care is a term that implies staying overnight for care at the facility. At The Leaves, Christian Science nurses provide skilled care for individuals through spiritual witnessing, nurturing, cherishing, and comforting. A high level of individual care is provided. All care comes with the expectancy of complete and immediate healing.

 

Care Provided

  • Assisting with mobility and care presently in bed

  • Cleansing and bandaging wounds

  • Providing appropriate nourishment and assisting or feeding

  • Assisting with personal care, bathing, etc.

  • Reading aloud the Bible Lesson and Christian Science literature upon request

  • Instruction about proper care for meeting individual physical needs and abilities

For In-patient admission – Please call 469-417-8990

Out-patient Christian Science Nursing

Prayers, in which God is not asked to heal but is besought to take the patient to Himself, do not benefit the sick. An ill-tempered, complaining, or deceitful person should not be a nurse. The nurse should be cheerful, orderly, punctual, patient, full of faith, — receptive to Truth and Love.

In-Home Christian Science Nursing

What Is In-Home Christian Science Nursing?

In-Home Christian Science nursing (as available within the metroplex) is care provided away from the facility, wherever the patient happens to be – at home, in an assisted living facility, at an airport – wherever the need appears. 

 

To talk to a Christian Science Nurse, please call 469-417-8990.

 

If extended care is needed we may be able to assist in locating private duty Christian Science nurses,  We can also help find community resources that support an individual staying in their home or moving to their next residence.

 

Care Provided

  • Cleansing and bandaging of wounds for cleanliness, protection, comfort

  • Caring for children as well as for adults

  • Instruction in proper care for meeting individual needs

  • Helping with meal preparation

  • Free assessment of care needs

  • Loans of equipment for mobility

  • Instruction to families about how to support the patient

  • Reading the Bible Lesson and authorized Christian Science literature

  • Helping with baths, shampoos, and other personal care

  • Shopping for groceries and personal items

Respite Care

The Leaves also offers In-patient respite care to those who are usually nursed in their homes by family members, by friends, fellow church members, or private duty Christian Science nurses. Respite care is available at The Leaves for a few days, a few weeks, or occasionally, for a month or two at regular rates for in-patient Christian Science nursing care. Respite care is designed to serve the needs both of those giving care and those to whom care is given.
