Residents of North Texas can receive a free in-home one time nurse visit when their child is about 3 weeks of age up to 12 wks. Family Connects nurses can help address families' needs such as baby and mom health check, postpartum depression screening, breast or bottle feeding help, safe sleep information, playgroups and parent support groups, back-to-work support, and any additional support needed by the family.
In-home visits are typically done when baby is 3 weeks of age, but baby must be less than 12 weeks to receive services.
They are associated with affiliate hospitals in Tarrant, Wise, Johnson, Hood, and Parker counties including Lake Granbury Medical Center, THR Cleburne, THR Harris, Medical City Arlington, Arlington Memorial or Wise Health. Families not delivering in those hospitals can self-refer themselves for services.
At least one home visit is provided, but up to 3 home-visits if needed.
May go infrequently outside their area on a case-by-case availability basis.
