The Story That Inspired Us:

An old man was walking down the beach just before dawn. In the distance he saw a young man picking up stranded starfish and throwing them back into the sea.  As the old man approached the young man he asked, “Why do you spend so much energy doing what seems to be a waste of time?” The young man explained that the stranded starfish would die if left in the morning sun. “There must be thousands of beaches and millions of starfish. How can your efforts make any difference?” exclaimed the old man. The young man looked down at the small starfish in his hand and as he threw it to safety in the sea he said, “It makes a difference to this one!”


We staff all Starfish Care Homes locations with two caregivers during the day and one caregiver overnight for our ten residents.  Our caregivers’ first priority is care, but they also cook, clean and interact with our residents throughout the day.  We cook tasty and healthy meals, mostly from scratch with fresh fruits and vegetables.  In addition to activities coordinated by our staff, Starfish brings in outside professionals to conduct Geriatric Training, Art Therapy, Music Therapy, and play games. 

Starfish communicates with your Primary Care Provider to implement your personalized care plan, and we manage and administer your medications.  We also work with locals hospices, home health agencies, other service providers to meet all of your needs. 

Starfish is privately owned and managed by seasoned professionals with many years of healthcare and business experience.  Kris is a Family Nurse Practitioner with over 20 years of nursing experience and Ben is an accomplished, hands-on business manager.   We work with our staff to make our home feel like your home and deliver the best care possible.
