Asthma Control Training (A.C.T.) in the schools would not be complete without coordinating asthma care in the home environment. a.i.r. nyc provides A.C.T. parents with the opportunity for home-visiting asthma care and environmental assessments. Families with a child or with children suffering from asthma can schedule a home visit by an a.i.r. nyc Community Health Worker who will conduct a home environmental assessment, teach techniques for better asthma self-management, check and confirm medications, and reach out to the the primary care provider.
Community Health Workers also make referrals to smoking cessation programs, pro-bono legal services, Integrated Pest Management (IPM), and more.
