We at Christiana Care Visiting Nurse Association are dedicated to you, the people of Southern Delaware. Although our name has changed -- we used to be called the Visiting Nurse Associa- tion of Delaware - our mission hasn't changed. Now serving the people of Delaware for over 75 years, VNA is still a locally- based service agency, with offices in New Castle, Dover, Milford, and Georgetown. We also have Wellness Centers in seven area high schools, as well as The Wishing Well Center for Children with Special Medical Needs in Dover, and the Ever- green Center for Alzheimer's Day Treatment in Milford. We work together with hospitals throughout Delaware to provide you with the care you need to get better, where you'd rather be -- at home. But none of that would mean a thing to you, unless you were one of the 20,000 people last year who welcomed VNA into their homes. Those people know us because we're the "Heal- ing Power of Home."
