Services Provided: First Connections Home Visiting Program age 0-3 South County Home Health provides free, voluntary, confidential home visits to pregnant women and families with young children, birth to age three. Trained nurses, social workers, and community health workers meet with families in their homes to talk about their needs, answer questions they may have, and conduct comprehensive assessments. Home visits are based on the needs of the family. Visit topics may include health education and connections with appropriate healthcare services, human services, and community resources. If a child does not have a medical home, we can help the family find one.

Healthy Families America HFA is the primary home visiting model best equipped to work with families who may have histories of trauma, intimate partner violence, mental health and/or substance abuse issues. Services begin prenatally or right after the birth of a baby and are offered voluntarily long term (3 years after the birth of the baby).

Pediatric Care : Our pediatric nursing care specialists provide comprehensive, high quality care to children, adolescents, and young adults up to age 18. The children in our care live with diverse diagnoses, including: Ventilator support, Respiratory disorders, Seizure disorders, Cerebral palsy, Autism, Cardiac Anomalies
Managing these conditions require training, experience, and services that meet the specific needs of the families.

New moms have lots of questions; our visiting nurses have the answers. Working with your doctors, our experienced registered nurses can offer invaluable help after the birth of your baby. They ensure the continued health of you and your newborn and coordinate your care in the comfort and privacy of your home. Your nurse will complete a full health assessment of you and your baby and will also evaluate the home environment to make certain it promotes safety and the good health of your infant.
Provider Profiles: Caring for a newborn baby can be challenging, especially during the first several weeks. South County Home Health nurses can give you the support you need during this time.
