Sondra, our home visitor is a mother and grandmother who has been trained to help other mothers with their concerns. The home visitors work with public health nurses who may also make home visits as needed.
Sondra tries to set up appointments for home visits with the parents before the baby is born and after mother and baby are home.
If you have any questions call the Health Department at (620) 382-2550 and ask for Sondra.
