Comprehensive voluntary home visitation program for first time, high-risk mothers who are paired with a registered nurse during the mother's pregancy through the child's second birthday. The nurse provides support and education to the mother and child including developmental screening, basic health monitoring and referral information to the mother as appropriate.
Community nursing services are provided to facilitate the transition of the child and family from the Newborn Intensive Care Unit to their home and community. Periodic monitoring of the child's medical and developmental needs identifies infants who would benefit from referral to other early intervention programs. Through these home visits, the family receives support and education as well as referral to appropriate community resources.
