Guided by our values of Love and Excellence, ChristianaCare HomeHealth is dedicated to delivering health, not just health care, to the communities we serve. We are among the top 1% in volume in the U.S. with more than 600 home-based caregivers making nearly 300,000 home visits annually, supported by office-based teams. We provide after-hospital care, rehabilitation, pain management, infusion therapy, home health aide support, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech language pathology, medical social work and medication management for patients of all ages. As the highest-volume home health agency in Delaware, we are passionate about the incredible responsibility we have to impact the health of our neighbors.
ChristianaCare HomeHealth, led by Chief Nurse Executive Ric Cuming, Ed.D., RN, is deeply connected to ChristianaCare, which fosters an environment of continued collaboration, innovation and opportunity. Our commitment to excellence has led us to achieve CMS’s 4-Star National Benchmark rating and The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for patient care.
We are a part of a comprehensive health system that is constantly evolving and expanding. There is no limit to the opportunities you’ll find here now and throughout your career.
“Participating and getting the chance to see patients making a full recovery help make this job particularly meaningful. Usually in that time, a caring and trusting relationship develops amongst staff, patient and family. We provide a lot of education and support and give them tools needed to help reduce their chances for a readmission to the hospital. All of these things are tangible and undoubtedly contribute to job satisfaction.”
Lori Maniken, RN
“My job is to determine what the patient’s goals are and develop a strategy to help them achieve them. My work is meaningful when at discharge I see the progress that the patient has made and how grateful they are of how dedicated their HomeHealth care team is in helping them remain safe at home.”
HomeHealth caregivers have the opportunity to advance their careers in a number of ways:
Fellowship opportunities for experienced nurses
The ChristianaCare HomeHealth RN Fellowship is a six-month, intensive program for experienced nurses who possess more than one year of nursing experience, but less than one year of home health or hospital-based experience. The fellowship includes a combination of classroom, hospital training and precepting by experienced home care nurses in the field.
Transitioning from hospital, long-term care/rehab or physician practice into home health is a big step. Upon completion of an interview with our leadership team, potential future caregivers can request an opportunity to shadow an existing caregiver to acquire a taste of the home care experience.
Have a voice and join a council with your colleagues
Several multidisciplinary, system-wide councils within the shared-governance structure are available for home health caregivers’ participation.
Benefits of being a ChristianaCare HomeHealth caregiver
UPDATE: ChristianaCare is committed to prioritizing the health and safety of our patients and caregivers. As we continue to meet the needs of our caregivers and our community through the COVID-19 pandemic, our commitment to health and safety requires that we take new steps to ensure a safe environment for medical care for our patients and a workplace that avoids preventable harm for our caregivers. For this reason, vaccination for COVID-19 is required for all caregivers at ChristianaCare and is considered a safety standard that is job-related and consistent with business necessity for all caregivers.
