DePelchin Children’s Center now offers SafeCare to parents of children ages 0-5 in Galveston and surrounding counties. SafeCare is an evidence-based, in-home program to improve parents’ skills in three areas: parent-infant/child interactions, home safety, and child health care. In the parent-infant/child interaction model, parents will learn to increase positive interactions with their infant/child and how to structure daily activities by providing engaging and stimulating activities. Home safety focuses on helping parents identify common household hazards and ways to eliminate these hazards. The module on child health care teaches parents to recognize when their child is sick or injured and to follow a structured process to determine when and how to care for their child. Parents learn when to seek emergency help, when to see a doctor, and when and how to care for their child at home.
