Virtual Home Visits

Karitane responded to COVID-19 with a 100% digital transformation of services and with the release of the Australian Government’s “3-Step Recovery Plan” we have re-introduced face-to-face services. We offer both face-to-face and virtual services and our team work with families to match the right service and delivery depending on each family’s individual needs. For our COVID-19 update see here. As COVID-19 continues to put increased pressure on the health system we don't require a GP/health professional referral. Access for parents still remains easier than ever, parents can self-refer on-line here.

Just like the support you would receive at one of our parenting centres, but delivered to you in your home. Individual consultations up to 2 hours (video call) with a Karitane Child and Family Health Nurse for parenting challenges relating to sleep and settling, breastfeeding, feeding and nutrition, routines, adjusting to parenting and toddlers. The number of Virtual Home Visits you receive will depend on your individual needs and our Intake team will develop the right support plan for your family. Our skilled and caring team work in partnership with your family to assist you identify and achieve your goals. Your partner, a grandparent or support person is welcome to join the consultation with you and your child.
