Individuals who are fully relying on Christian Science with an expectancy of healing and who would benefit from being in a supportive environment are welcome to apply for our Sheltered Care program.
Requirements for Sheltered Care Program
Each Sheltered Care guest is:
- A member of The Mother Church and/or a Journal-listed Christian Science branch church.
- In regular contact with a Christian Science practitioner to support his or her spiritual growth.
Sheltered Care Program Trial Period
Prior to acceptance into the Sheltered Care Program, each potential guest is required to come to Arden Wood for a two-week stay to ensure the fit between the guest and Arden Wood. Arden Wood will provide a modestly furnished room, preferably the room of the guest’s choice, based upon availability. During this time, the staff will assess the guest’s care needs in order to ensure the appropriate care level and rate for services. After the successful completion of the trial period, arrangements will be made for the guest to move their belongings into their own room.
Trial Period Cost
The two-week trial period is charged at the base rate.
