Safety Is Our Priority – Learn more

At ChristianaCare, everything we do is For the Love of Health™, and that focus has guided our response throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We have redesigned how we deliver care to keep our patients and caregivers safe, while providing the high-quality care that our community needs and deserves. This includes greatly expanded options for virtual care and telehealth visits, as well as guidelines that support social distancing, wearing masks, a clean environment and limited numbers of patients and visitors to ensure safety.

For the safety of our patients and caregivers, we have expanded and changed how we deliver care to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Depending on your medical needs, your appointments could take place in-person or by video. Existing ChristianaCare patients can request a virtual appointment by sending a message to “Rehabilitation Services Physical, Occupational, Speech Therapy” on the ChristianaCare patient portal.

Please complete the required health history information on the ChristianaCare patient portal. Any additional required paperwork will be emailed to you.

 

What to Expect from an In-Person Visit

When you come to see us, you will experience a welcoming environment that’s a little different.

Before your appointment, you will answer some COVID-19 screening questions through secured text messaging or at the door. Our team will let you know when you are cleared to come into the office.

Your support person can help you get into the office, but they should plan to wait in the car during your appointment. You should plan to wear a face mask throughout your appointment.

After your appointment, our team will assist you in getting back to your car.

Occupational Therapy

We all have an innate desire to do as much for ourselves as possible. If you need help re-learning how to take care of daily tasks, such as dressing, bathing and homemaking — or if your goal is to overcome challenges and find new ways to work or play — occupational therapy can help you reclaim your independence and manage ever-changing environments.

ChristianaCare’s experienced team of certified occupational therapists helps you apply real-life skills and use adaptive equipment to regain strength and coordination and re-learn the more challenging skills of daily living.
