Please call ahead if you are planning to visit.  Our Director of Christian Science Nursing will let you know the latest guidelines for visitation.  You will need to take your temperature at reception before going to visit anyone.  Masks are required.  Please stay six feet apart at all times from other people.  Outdoor visitations are encouraged. 


We always welcome visitors at Fern Lodge. Although we do not have set visiting hours, we do appreciate hearing about your visits ahead of time to insure that you can see the patient promptly.  Our doors are locked during the night, so please give us a call if you are coming late.

Visiting Procedures

Please call us before coming to see a patient at Fern Lodge that way we can make sure they are not engaged when you arrive.  Our receptionists work 9-5 every day in the main entrance and are happy to help you with our sign-in procedure.  If the receptionist is out, please sign in on the sign in sheet at the front desk and ring the buzzer at the front desk to get a Christian Science nurse.

Calling Patients

Every patient has a phone in their room.  If you would like to call a patient, please ask the receptionist for their telephone extension.  You can type in this three digit extension after the receptionist goes home in the evenings to call a patient.


If you would like to eat a meal with a patient while you are here, please give our kitchen at least two hours notice. Lunch is at 11:30am and Dinner is at 5:00pm.  You can call the kitchen directly at 510-886-2448 Ex. 227 or call a Christian Science nurse at Ex. 211.


If you would like a tour of our facility, please give us a call or email ahead of time, and one of our office staff would be happy to give you a tour.
