Flu season visitor restriction – age 16 or older (Restricción de visitantes durante la Temporada de Influenza (Flu) – Mayores de 16 años.)

Flu Season Visitor Restriction

Visitors temporarily restricted to age 16 or older

As a safety first organization, ChristianaCare is implementing a temporary visitation age restriction starting Tuesday, Jan. 21. This temporary restriction protects patients, their loved ones and health care workers during this time of extremely high number of influenza cases and other respiratory illnesses circulating in our community.

The new restrictions limit visitors to patients in Christiana and Wilmington hospitals to persons age 16 or older. Children and teens younger than 16 years are most likely to get the flu and remain contagious longer than adults. This restriction does not apply to outpatient and ambulatory services.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Restricción de visitantes durante la Temporada de Influenza (Flu)

Temporalmente solo se permiten los visitantes mayores de 16 años.

Como una organización que promueve la seguridad ante todo, ChristianaCare está implementando una restricción temporal en la edad de visitantes a partir del viernes 21 de enero. Esta restricción temporal protege a los pacientes, a sus seres queridos y al personal de cuidados de salud durante esta época con un número extremadamente alto de casos de influenza y de otras enfermedades respiratorias que circulan en nuestra comunidad.

Las nuevas restricciones, en los hospitales Christiana y Wilmington, sólo permiten visitas a pacientes de personas mayores de 16 años. Los niños y adolescentes menores de 16 años son más propensos a contraer el flu y son contagiosos por más tiempo que los adultos. Esta restricción no aplica a las áreas de servicios ambulatorios.

Gracias por su comprensión y cooperación.

Senior Health Services

Adult Day Care

ChristianaCare’s Adult Day Care Program provides a safe, caring home away from home for seniors or other individuals who may be limited due to age or illness. When you or a loved one cannot be home alone during the day, we offer expert medical care in a relaxed, stimulating environment, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Leisure and learning opportunities at our program include card games, educational trips, music and crafts, social lunches and more.

Ongoing care, or respite care just when you need it

Life is hectic, and there are days when you just can’t be there to care for your loved one—your son is in a school play, you have a doctor’s appointment or you just need a time for yourself. It’s OK. We know that although you want to be there as much as possible, sometimes there are other responsibilities that need your attention. That’s why we offer respite day care. Our respite program will offer your loved one the same services as our regular adult day program. We only require notice 48 hours in advance and records of a current physical exam.

Insurance and financial assistance

Some insurance plans may cover adult day care. Additional on-site services may be covered by Medicare Part B or private insurance. Financial assistance is available for those who qualify through the Elderly and Disabled Home and Community-Based Waiver Program. Financial assistance is also available for those people who qualify through the Department of Veterans Affairs at 302-994-2511, extension 4708.
