While Maryland has moved into Stage III reopening plans, Catholic Charities has ongoing discussions about deliberate and thoughtful ways to operate in the safest possible manner for our colleagues, volunteers, communities, and individuals we serve. We continue to ask our wonderful volunteers to stay safer at home. Because our seniors are especially vulnerable, we are beginning to open up limited visitation very carefully at each program and appreciate your patience and understanding.
- Soon, we will be updating our Volunteer Portal with ways you can be a virtual volunteer, help from home, deliver goods and items, and more.
St. Elizabeth Rehabilitation & Nursing Center has implemented multiple measures to protect residents and employees against COVID-19. Our infection prevention and control policies and procedures are key to preventing COVID-19 and other common viruses.
- We are ensuring that everyone in the facility practices proper hand hygiene and proactive additional precautions to minimize risk.
- Our trained infection preventionist is taking the lead on facility risk assessment.
- We follow direction from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and the Maryland Health Department (MDH) with support from the Baltimore City Health Department (BCHD).
- We monitor daily all expert guidance and adjust procedures accordingly.
- We are beginning to open up very limited visits under specific precautions.
While the presence of family and friends is a huge part of life for residents, to reduce risk, we must limit visitors and volunteers in our facility. We have been in close communication with our residents and their loved ones during this difficult time.
Thank you for your continued support as the entire community works to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and we work to protect residents and employees of St. Elizabeth Rehabilitation & Nursing Center.

“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.

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.

Each Elder’s care will be overseen by a clinical team including a physician, dietitian, nurses, and other support staff.

“I lived at St. Elizabeth for 20 days. And day-by-day, I could feel that I was getting stronger, and more capable. I was becoming myself again. I left St. Elizabeth very grateful for the excellent care that I received and went back to my life actually stronger in many ways than I had been in a long time!” -Virginia Mellendick, former St. Elizabeth Elder
It is very common for physicians to recommend additional rehabilitation following a hospital stay to ensure that Elders have the strength and independence needed to return home safely. The staff at St. Elizabeth views reconditioning and strengthening as vital components of achieving the highest quality of life. Rehabilitative therapy is centered around the individual needs and goals of each Elder. Strength and endurance training take place in our gym or spacious rehabilitation atrium. When the weather is nice, some of your rehabilitation may even occur in our specially-designed rehabilitation courtyard allowing you to practice mobility on different gradients and textures. Activities of daily living (like bathing, cooking and laundry) are not just simulated but are actually practiced in a true-to-life setting. These diverse rehabilitation experiences promote Elder confidence and, ultimately, independence.
The Neighborhoods at St. Elizabeth proudly offers the following services:
• Physical Therapy
• Occupational Therapy
• Speech Language Pathology
• Intravenous Therapy
• Wound Care
When an Elder has reached his or her goals and is ready to return home, our skilled Elder Advocate team will take care of all the details to ensure a seamless transition back home.
“There are many sacred moments that each human being must experience – each moment offering precious gifts. To me, perhaps the most sacred and precious gift of all is that invitation to journey with another through their dying process. When curative measures are no longer deemed effective, many people transition through death with a philosophy of care commonly known as “Hospice.”
No longer is a specific symptom the focus of care but rather compassionate care is extended to the whole person. Hospice, while addressing medical needs, is also addressing the spiritual, social and emotional needs of each individual and their family. Hospice provides comfort and dignity so each person can live their life to the fullest, respecting and encouraging their independence at all times. It creates an environment that allows for life review and for validation of that life lived.”
An array of support services are provided to each individual and family participating in the Hospice program at St. Elizabeth:
• Nursing care
• Pastoral care
• Volunteer support
• Social work support
• Bereavement support for the family
Please contact us for more information about hospice services and to find out if you qualify. Callor use our contact form.
