About Harrison House of Christiana Services and Amenities

At Harrison House of Christiana, we understand that rehabilitation therapy is more than addressing your physical needs. Rehabilitation requires a calm, relaxing setting along with the support and skill of nursing professionals to help you regain your functions.

Health and wellness services

Harrison House of Christiana holds you and your family member’s health, care and rehabilitation above all else. As a resident, you can rely on the best medical care without having to leave the grounds. Our staff is led by a Physician Medical Director and our team of tenured licensed skilled nurses dedicated to helping improve and maintain the health and wellness of our residents.

In addition to on-site medical services, we also can aid those seeking skilled nursing care for respite and short-term accommodations needs and rehabilitation services for physical, speech and occupational therapy. 

Continued rehabilitation services

Once you or your family member reach the highest level of independence, you can return home with the security of knowing you can continue your rehabilitation at our location on an outpatient basis. Continuing your rehabilitation on an outpatient basis will allow you to work with the same therapists and maintain consistency in your rehabilitation program.

Secured memory support unit

Harrison House of Christiana provides residents who require memory care a secure living environment that supports independence.

Our memory support unit was designed to help memory care residents live an independent life. The halls are designed to form a loop, which helps memory care residents to better navigate the floor and helps prevent frustration. Doors are personalized with a color for easy identification.

Hospice care

We help to improve the quality of life for those seeking hospice care. You or your family member will receive compassionate care and be treated with the utmost dignity when entering the last stages of an incurable disease. Our main concern will be on providing supportive and palliative care, which will focus on ensuring maximum comfort.
