Promise 1000 home visitors encourage families to attend well child visits, and offer supportive coordination of care by attending well child visits with families
Internal studies have shown that families had increased well child check (WCC) schedule adherence if they experienced a home visitor attending at least ONE well child check with them at some point.
This was regardless of how many home visits they had or how many times a home visitor attended a WCC with them!
Based on a qualitative study's results, the home visitor attending WCCs with the family also improved communication and understanding (including remembering questions, interpretation, and understanding the visit and goals better), facilitation of the visit, and emotional support for families.
