The Special Culture at St. Elizabeth
"In short, after having experienced four other local nursing homes, we could only marvel at the high standards of care at St. Elizabeth. St. Elizabeth stands as a hallmark of dignity and concern where patients are treated as respected members of the family." - St. Elizabeth Family Member
At the Neighborhoods at St. Elizabeth our goal is to help Elders thrive while reaching their highest potential physically, socially, and emotionally. To accomplish this, we utilize a method of caregiving known as Elder centered care. Elders are truly at the core of everything we do and play an integral role in developing their own daily rhythms of living. Elders and their families partner with staff to develop individualized programs of care. Just like they did at home, Elders decide when to sleep and rise, when to dine, and how to socialize. Although this approach to care may sound simple, it represents a radical change from traditional hospital based models of efficiency. As a result, St. Elizabeth Elders enjoy more autonomy and a happier, more meaningful life.
St. Elizabeth is composed of five unique neighborhoods. Each neighborhood features a beautiful & accessible open air space, a family oriented living room, a cozy hearth, and a spacious dining room. Consistent staff assignments mean that Elders and staff truly get to know each other and build meaningful, warm relationships. Through daily interactions and close partnerships, Elders and staff easily become a community. Every neighborhood is overseen by a dedicated Neighborhood Guide who acts as a liaison and advocate for each Elder.
Care at St. Elizabeth is managed by a board certified, fellowship trained Geriatrician and Geriatric Nurse Practitioner. With an office on-site, the Geriatrician is easily accessible to both Elders and their families. A full clinical support team including nurses, geriatric nursing assistants, dietitians, and rehabilitation therapists are also available to provide expertise and clinical oversight.
Pastoral care is considered a vital part of St. Elizabeth. We offer daily Catholic Mass, continuing the tradition of the founding Daughters of Charity, as well as weekly interdenominational services. A full-time Chaplain, Pastoral Care Director, and their staff provide over 700 visits per month, supporting the spiritual & emotional needs of Elders and their families.
Situated on over 26 acres of pristine land with a spectacular view of the Baltimore skyline, The Neighborhoods at St. Elizabeth provides beauty and serenity out each window. Every tree and plant is intentionally placed to bring color and attract birds and butterflies year round. Elders and families enjoy peaceful moments spent in one of our many courtyards as well as large gatherings in our four season pavilion. Ideally located near I-95 and a metropolitan hospital, St. Elizabeth has all the conveniences of a major city with the feel of a quiet countryside.
