Why Home Visitation Works

  • Home visitation is a best practice approach to supporting individuals and families regardless of age parenting or marital status.
  • Home visitors are invited guests in a family's home and they respect and work with the family
  • Home visitation provides an opportunity to work in the family environment, to learn first hand about the conditions of life for the parent and child and to tailor services to best meet their needs
  • Home visitation reaches isolated families who are too overwhelmed or disillusioned by past experiences that they are unable to participate in centre-based services
