MediCal is a federally-funded State of California health care support program (commonly called Medicaid in many states). This program is for people who have no resources to pay for long-term nursing care. Broadview, Fern Lodge, and Olive Glen are the Christian Science nursing facilities in California that are currently participating in MediCal. There are a number of non-Christian Science nursing facilities in California that will accept Christian Scientists, accommodate our religious beliefs, and not require acceptance of medical procedures. Some Christian Science nursing facilities maintain lists of such facilities but cannot recommend any facility.
