Residents can choose private or shared rooms, each with a private bathroom. The Delaware Court Healthcare Center model is dynamic and the range of services offered is wide. Planning and communicating are the keys to an enjoyable and beneficial stay and what sets us apart from others.
Upon admission, we will have a detailed history of the medical condition and other pertinent information that will help us determine how best to care for our residents. The plan we develop includes an assessment of the individual’s physical and psychosocial status as part of the planning process, and the resident, family or other responsible party is always involved.
