Christian Science nurse “Scope of Services”

The Visiting Christian Science Nursing Service is provided by Whitehaven Trust Ltd. Christian Science nursing is part of the healing ministry of the Christian Science church.

Our Christian Science nurses offer these services to those in need:

  • Spiritual reassurance with the expectancy of complete and quick healing
  • Reading the weekly Bible Lesson or any other Christian Science literature
  • Giving assistance with physical care needs such as: food preparation, bathing and personal care, mobility, cleansing/bandaging
  • Giving encouragement and gently offering Christian assistance in support of the patient’s expression of normal activity and natural vitality
  • Guiding the patient and/or caregiver/s in providing care in line with the Church Manual By-Law of the Christian Science nurse
  • Ensuring that standards and regulations required by the Commission for Accreditation of Christian Science Nursing Organisations/Facilities and the Care Quality Commission are followed
  • Giving reassurance and advice for family members who may not know much about Christian Science healing

The Christian Science nurse does not provide medical treatment of any kind. The Christian Science nurse does not diagnose, and is not medically trained.

The provision of these nursing services is built on the Scope of Services, prepared by Christian Science Nursing Activities, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, Boston, Mass.

Availability

We accept calls for hourly visits but longer visits may be arranged when needed. We travel according to the need.

Costs

We do not charge fees. A Statement of Cost is rendered after a visit and you are invited to pay what you feel you can afford. You may also apply for financial assistance to the Aid Fund for Christian Scientists in Need of Nursing Care. Your Christian Science nurse will help with this.

It is vital that anyone who feels they need the service should have access to it so ability to pay is never a factor in its provision. The Trust itself is supported by donations from Christian Scientists and Christian Science churches.
