Home Visiting Services

Our home visiting program provides mental health services for all members of households where a primary caregiver may have a mental or physical condition, cultural belief, or difficult circumstances that prevent them from leaving home to attend a mental health clinic on a regular basis. Home visits can help members of the household stay out of the hospital or more intense therapy by dealing with the problem early on, before it escalates due to the patient’s inability to attend clinics regularly. Our multicultural, multilingual staff provides professional and skilled counseling for adults and children.

English, Creole, Spanish and Russian speaking therapists available.

Home Visiting Services for Children

IDCC also facilitates a specialized home-visiting program for children who cannot regularly attend necessary care visits. We will provide care managers who help children and their families, acting as an advocate for their various needs. Managers will orchestrate a care team that may include, a therapist, psychiatrist, para-professional, teacher and or counselor to ensure the child’s health needs are taken care of. Additionally, they can help coordinate government programs such as food stamps and provide educational information concerning the child’s diagnosis.

To qualify for IDCC home visiting program you need to have:

Children must have Medicaid or Managed Care Medicaid. Adults must have Managed Care Medicaid. Those with Dual Medicaid/Medicare, Medicare only or Commercial insurances will not be accepted.
