How can I prepare for the monthly Health and Safety visit?

Make a list of any questions you have for the caseworker. They might include: 

  • The current status of the permanent plan.

  • Upcoming meetings/staffings/court hearings/appointments that you or the child or youth might want to attend, the visitation schedule and transportation arrangements.

  • Respite needs and pending reimbursements related to mileage, respite and child care.

You can help by sharing:

  • Information about how the child is doing in your home, school, childcare or other settings;

  • Strengths and needs of the child and concerns you have;

  • Your need for information about the child;

  • Services the child may need;

  • Support services you might need: training, support groups, recruitment and retention liaison contact, foster parent FaceBook groups, etc.
