What to Expect
Once the referred family has been assigned, a home visitor will contact them to schedule an initial visit. Visits are planned around the family’s schedule to meet the needs of the family, and can be completed at home, virtually, or in the community. Home visitors provide families with information relevant and important to the family, addressing their concerns and questions. Some of those topic areas may include: pregnancy, immunizations, discipline, child safety, toilet training, breastfeeding, separation anxiety, play, social, emotional, and physical development, basic care, temperament traits, cues and signals, challenges with routine, preparing for new baby, and child growth and development.
The Home visitors provide families with activities to complete with their children in the home, along with links to any resources they may need in the community. The family may receive services in the program until the child reaches the age of 3.
