ChristianaCare HomeHealth caregivers celebrated the organization’s new vision and name on Feb. 25.
Ric Cuming, Ed.D., RN, chief nurse executive and president, ChristianaCare HomeHealth, and Ann Painter, MSN, RN, senior vice president, ChristianaCare HomeHealth & Community Services, led a spirit bus tour of the organization’s three Delaware office locations in Camden, Wilmington and New Castle.
Serving Delawareans as the Visiting Nurse Association since 1922, “ChristianaCare HomeHealth is grounded in a long history of providing exceptional care to Delawareans with love and excellence,” Cuming said.
Complementing the rebrand of ChristianaCare in October, the change reflects the health needs and goals of Delawareans who wish to remain independent at home after hospitalization, during chronic illness and as they age.
ChristianaCare HomeHealth today has more than 600 home-based caregivers making nearly 300,000 home visits annually, supported by office-based teams. With more than 8,000 patients, ChristianaCare HomeHealth is the highest-volume home health agency in Delaware and among the top 1% in volume in the U.S.
As Delaware’s largest home health care provider of skilled nursing care, nationally recognized ChristianaCare HomeHealth provides after-hospital care, rehabilitation, pain management, infusion therapy, home health aide support, medical social work and medication management for patients of all ages.
In addition, ChristianaCare HomeHealth provides Alzheimer’s disease and dementia care in-home and through the Evergreen Center, Delaware’s only dedicated adult day program for patients with Alzheimer’s disease.
