COVID-19 Updates

Star has been in full operation since this crisis began. We are available 24 hours a day 7 days per week. We are working diligently on making sure that our nurses have all needed PPE without interruption. It has not been easy, but we have masks, gloves, goggles and gowns ready and available to our nurses.

My heart goes out to those of you who are fighting this terrible illness and to those who have lost loved ones or friends. This has been a very difficult time, but it has made me realize yet again how fortunate I am. I feel blessed to have the best team in the world working for Star!

I would like to express my deepest appreciation to the heroic nurses of Star Pediatric Home Care Agency and administrative personnel.

To all of you who have gone above and beyond to continue providing vital services to our clients in this time of need, to those who answered calls in the middle of the night and never said no when asked to help, to those of you who are there in the front line I would like to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!

With people like you we will overcome this crisis and will emerge stronger and better than ever.
