Nourish Nurse Home Visitor Program

A nurse in the home helping your family achieve a healthy start

Nourish is a service provided to all families in Chaffee County. Through this program we serve new families (birth through 12 months) regardless of income and number of children. We feel we have something to offer every family, regardless if it is their first or fifth child.

The nurse home visitor meets with the family in their home on an average of 10 times (twice prenatally, within the first week of the infant’s life, 2 weeks, 6 weeks, 10-12 weeks, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, and 1 year). We can schedule additional appointments with the family as needed.

The services in this program include: breastfeeding education and support, what to expect in the early days, safe sleep, depression screening and referral, normal newborn behavior, developmental milestones, car seat inspections, Cavity Free at 3, community resources, nutrition, exercise, birth control, immunizations, infant safety, tobacco cessation education and assistance and solid food introduction among many other topics.
