In Loving Memory
We are sad to report the passing of a member of our Star family, Irvin Carr. Irvin joined our family in 2018 and had been a dedicated nurse throughout his time here. Many of his coworkers at Star loved working with him and described him as “a sweet man and a pleasure to work with”. Irvin’s famous line when greeting someone was “Blessed to be alive on this beautiful day”. We were blessed with the opportunity to know such a special soul like Irvin. May Irvin and his family find peace at this time.

Winter Weather Reminders
With the weather dropping in temperature, we want to share some safety reminders to practice during the winter season.
1. Try to stay indoors during extreme cold weather.
2. Give yourself extra time when traveling and be sure to clean off your car and drive more cautiously.
3. Pipes freeze! Keep your house at the appropriate temperature to prevent your pipes from freezing.
4. Time to bring the pets inside. Our fur babies can only withstand so much cold weather.
5. Check on the elderly, weather conditions make it harder for them to get household supplies and food.
6. Help prevent motor vehicle accidents by increasing your following distance, don’t use cruise control, and avoid quirky motions (be cautious).
