Q.

Do you provide any services for children's health?

A.

Health Services offers parents of children ages 2 mo. through 5 years of age the opportunity to have developmental screenings completed. We identified that many parents are unsure of what the developmental appropriate growth patterns are with children. They may not need in-home services on a continual basis, but would still benefit from understanding child development patterns and learning how to make their child school-ready.

Q.

What can I do to help an elderly relative/friend who I believe is at risk of suffering a fall?
