Swank Memory Care Center

About Swank Memory Care Center

The Swank Memory Care Center at Christiana Care is Delaware’s first and only comprehensive outpatient office for patients with memory disorders and their families.

Our geriatricians, geriatric psychiatrist, nurse practitioner, social worker, community educator and medical and administrative assistant work closely with primary care providers and additional specialists such as neurologists and neuropsychologists to develop an optimal plan for care.

The Swank Memory Care Center is a collaborative care program of Christiana Care’s departments of Medicine, Family & Community Medicine and Psychiatry.

“The Swank Memory Care Center stands alone. It is the only place that was there for not only the patient, but was a constant source of support for the caregiver and family.”
– A grateful caregiver
