ChristianaCare

All visitors are required to wear masks.

For COVID-19 safety, all visitors to ChristianaCare facilities and services are required to wear masks. This includes visitors who are vaccinated. Please read our visitor guidelines before arrival.

Masks required at outpatient locations; visitors and support persons limited

All visitors at outpatient locations must be masked in alignment with the masking guidelines on our visitation policy page here. Patients at ChristianaCare’s outpatient services are advised to come to their appointments alone unless a support person is absolutely needed. If a support person is needed, such as a parent, guardian or spokesperson, we highly encourage that the support person be vaccinated. Outpatient practices are not requiring vaccination or a negative COVID test for visitors at this time.

All hospital visitors required to be vaccinated or have a negative COVID-19 test.

  • Inpatients in our Christiana, Wilmington and Union hospitals may have one visitor daily between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. The visitor must be 16 or older.
  • Patients having outpatient surgery may have one support person accompany them. Support persons must be 16 or older.
  • All visitors and surgical support people must show proof of vaccination OR a negative COVID-19 test within the prior 72 hours.

Rehabilitation appointment information – Learn more

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.

Before Your Appointment

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.

Pediatric Rehabilitation Services

Children are born to run and play, jump and sing. Their ability to freely move and express themselves promotes independence, increases socialization through participation in group activities, enhances motor skill development, improves strength and endurance, enhances learning opportunities and allows them to assume greater responsibility in taking care of their own daily needs.

When your child’s movement, speech or hearing is restricted, life can be challenging. Our pediatric team specializes in physical and occupational therapy, speech and language pathology, early childhood education and audiology is here to help children with orthopaedic, neurological and developmental diagnoses, including:

  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.
  • Autism.
  • Brachial-plexus injury (to the nerves of the neck and shoulder).
  • Cerebral palsy.
  • Developmental delays in fine or gross motor skills.
  • Developmental disabilities.
  • Down syndrome.
  • Feeding and swallowing disorders.
  • Hearing loss.
  • Receptive and expressive language delay.
  • Sensory processing disorder.
  • Stuttering.
  • Torticollis (twisted neck).

Early intervention can profoundly impact a child’s skills and abilities and can help parents support their child’s improvement. We work with a variety of agencies to provide the earliest, most promising intervention.

We also understand that some children respond best to treatment in familiar surroundings, so our pediatric team will provide care in the home, daycare or school.
