Home is not a place but a power. We find home when we arrive at the full understanding of God. (Mary Baker Eddy, quoted in “Twelve Years with Mary Baker Eddy” by Irving Tomlinson)
Home is a place of love, comfort, and safety. Mary Baker Eddy calls it “the dearest spot on earth” (Science and Health, p. 58). It is natural to want to stay in your own home even when circumstances and needs change — and to want to maintain as much independence as possible.
Whether you live in a house, condo, or apartment, a variety of services are available to help you stay there. Should you need temporary care, Christian Science nurses and other non-medical services can help you create a safe and comfortable environment — often more cost-effectively than other arrangements.
The resources below on home, organizations, and services offer some guidance on options you may want to explore.
