What is Home Visitation?

The Home Visitation program works with parents & expecting parents to support and nurture their child’s development. The more you know, the better you do!

How does it work?

During the first visit the home visitor will share program information and discuss how they can support you & your family.

A Home Visitor will make weekly or bi-weekly visits to support you in working towards your family’s goals.

We can assist you with…

  • Setting personal & family goals
  • Building & enhancing family relationships
  • Prenatal support
  • Discussing your post-natal concerns
  • Increasing understanding of how your child grows, learns & develops from birth to age six
  • Nurturing a positive parent-child relationship
  • Talking about your health concerns & providing you with health-related information & supported referrals
  • Accessing & building your support networks & resources
  • Increasing your knowledge around self-care & its importance while parenting both prenatal and postnatal
