A home visitor receives a copy of the risk screen from the prenatal clinic, or delivery hospital. She will then attempt to contact the family by phone to see how we may be able to help. She will then arrange for a visit to the home to provide education, care coordination, and develop a detailed plan to help the family meet their needs and reach their goals. A home visitor may also conduct developmental assessments to ensure the baby is developing properly for his age.
