Parents indicate positive results from Healthy Families Livingston program 

Healthy Families recently distributed their annual satisfaction survey to parents in the program.  Healthy Families Livingston is one of our Great Start Livingston early childhood community partners.  They provide home visiting services to Livingston County parents with young children.

Twenty-five (25) participants completed the annual satisfaction survey.  Overall, parents are very satisfied with the Healthy Families Livingston program.  They are satisfied with the information shared and received on child development and parenting skills.  Parents confidence in parenting skills increased while being in the program.  Parents also reported they are treated with respect and consideration by their home visitor who is sensitive and respectful of family values, beliefs and traditions.

 

Parents indicated the following as their top areas of life that have improved since beginning Healthy Families Livingston:

·       My understanding of child development and age appropriate behaviors

·       Learning new ways to play with my child

·       More positive ways to manage my child’s behavior

·       Taking care of my children

·       The health care of my children

 

Parents described their home visitor as:

·       Supportive

·       Understanding

·       Helpful

·       Truthful

·       Respectful of our family

 

The Healthy Families Livingston Advisory Council reviewed the results of this survey and will utilize these results for future work and efforts so as to continue to support families with young children.

Healthy Families Livingston provides home visiting services for new parents in Livingston County.  Home visits are provided by family-support workers.  Parents attend ongoing workshops and support groups.  New parents learn information and skills about infant and child development, parent and infant interaction, parenting coping techniques, and how to attain personal parenting goals.
