Arden Wood’s mission of “healing through skillful Christian Science nursing care” extends throughout the greater San Francisco Bay Area. Care is available to individuals who are relying fully on Christian Science and working with a Journal-listed Christian Science practitioner.

Our visiting Christian Science nurses are trained professionals who are listed in The Christian Science Journal. They stand ready to provide Christian Science nursing care in the home or wherever there is a need within a reasonable driving distance from our facility.

Visiting Christian Science nursing service is offered on an hourly basis (1-2 hours per day) for a temporary period of time. Visits may be scheduled and general questions answered between 8 AM and 4 PM, seven days a week. Calls for sudden needs are answered at any time, day or night. (See phone numbers in orange to the left.)
