St. Martin’s in the Pines Our mission at St. Martin’s in the Pines is to serve God through a ministry that provides a continuum of care and quality of life to aging individuals and their families. Our vision is to be a caring community reflecting God’s love through service to the aging.

F

ifty years ago, the Rev. David Cady Wright, rector of St. Mary’s-on-theHighlands Episcopal Church, was concerned that many of his parishioners would not have a dignified, comfortable retirement. It was Rev. Wright’s pastoral concern that gave St. Martin’s its beginning. This commitment has been one reason for our continued growth. In 1957, St. Martin’s began as a retirement residence for 80 residents. Today, we’re a comprehensive retirement community, with a nursing home, an assistedliving facility, a secure Alzheimer’s community (Evergreen at St. Martin’s), and a four-story retirement apartment building. But as we’ve grown, one thing remains constant: our mission to meet the physical, social and spiritual needs of each resident. Because St. Martin’s physical and spiritual growth is still guided by the Episcopal Foundation of Jefferson County, our residents and their families can count on a sense of comfort, security and personal worth. Although the religious orientation of St. Martin’s is Episcopalian, residents of all denominations are welcome. We invite you to read the information in this packet and take a tour of our retirement community. You’ll quickly agree that St. Martin’s is more than a place to live. It’s a place to begin life anew.

It’s Simply Home With an ongoing commitment to the enhancement of quality of life for elders, St. Martin’s in the Pines has launched a unique and revolutionary care model for those requiring long-term skilled nursing. The Cottages at St. Martin’s is the first residential-style nursing home to be built in Alabama and part of a national movement known as the GREEN HOUSE ® Project. As a pioneer in the state, St. Martin’s serves as a beacon of hope for a culture change in long-term care. The GREEN HOUSE model creates a small, intimate community for a group of ten elders. A radical departure from traditional skilled nursing homes, the GREEN HOUSE home alters size, interior design, staffing patterns, and methods of delivering skilled nursing services. Its primary purpose is to serve as a place where elders can receive assistance and support with activities of daily living as well as clinical care, but without the assistance and care becoming the focus of their existence. The physical transformation is only one element of the GREEN HOUSE model. Staff responsibilities are dramatically different from those in a conventional nursing home. The traditional certified nursing assistant receives a new role of a universal care worker called a “Shahbaz.” Each is given additional training in ways to protect, sustain, and nurture the elders living in The Cottages and to take on a broader array of responsibilities, including the facilitation of meaningful activities, cooking, light housekeeping and laundry. Each house is also served by a clinical support team of nurses, medical directors, social workers, physical therapists and others. These professionals are not stationed within the houses, but visit according to a schedule, much like a home health model.

For fees and pricing information, please call and speak to a St. Martin’s representative.

All applicants must meet eligibility requirements for Nursing Home placement. Please contact the Admissions Director for Skilled Nursing Care to obtain admission information.

The Cottages accept private pay, Medicare and Medicaid.
