Home Visiting – Someone You Can Count On
For the families that have a regular home visitor, they’ll tell you it’s about the relationship. Parents say they feel seen and heard. Many say their home visitor becomes part of the family.
Home visiting builds relationships
When I first became a parent, a nurse came to check on me and my baby at home. Before she arrived, I was nervous about how the house looked, but her interest was in me and my baby and how we were doing. She asked some questions, talked with me, and made sure I had support.
That one visit was helpful. I can imagine how much more supportive the home visits could have been if they continued and I had someone I could count on for resources and information.
