Visiting Nurse Association

Alzheimer's and Dementia Care

If you or your family is caring at home for a loved who has memory loss or dementia, turn to ChristianaCare Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) for help. We provide the skilled at-home care needed to retain your loved one’s familiar routines and reduce confusion, anxiety or frustration. Plus, our medically supervised day care program provides your loved one with safe and engaging care, allowing family members to have the time to work, de-stress or pursue other activities.

In-home care

Our skilled and experienced nurses, home health aides, social workers and therapists will come to your home to provide medical nursing, rehabilitation and social services, as well as personal care to help your loved one with activities of daily living. We’ll help maintain routines and simplify tasks at home, to make your loved ones comfortable.

Evergreen Day Care Center

The Evergreen Center provides adult day care for people living with Alzheimer’s and related dementias, and support for their caregivers. We offer a full-day program with activities that help with social skills, reduce stress and encourage self-confidence. Our program director, a registered nurse, also gives caregivers helpful hints and information for managing their loved ones at home. The Center provides care Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

  • Our staff includes a music and recreational therapist who organizes activities, crafts and games designed to help your loved one maximize function, promote independence, reduce stress and build self-confidence.
  • Morning snacks, lunch and afternoon snacks not only mean your loved one gets nutritionally balanced meals, but also has time for sharing and socializing.
  • We help with personal care and grooming so your loved one looks and feels well.

If your loved one has a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia, he or she qualifies for day care at the Evergreen Center. Fees are on a sliding scale based on household income. The Center is supported by Delaware Health and Social Services Division of Services for Aging and Adults with Physical Disabilities, Medicaid Waiver and Veterans Administration. Private payment is also accepted. To learn more, please contact the Evergreen Center:
