A registered nurse is available for questions or concerns and will come to your home to see your child if there is a change in her condition or you have concerns. The nurse will leave a copy of the treatment plan with you in the home once completed. Your plan is expected to be flexible – changes can be made as time and conditions change with your child. We encourage you to jot notes on it as you think of questions and concerns.
You do not need to sign up at this time if you are not sure that you are ready for our services.
Over the course of the next couple of weeks you will be contacted by the holistic health specialist and the Child Life specialist so they can meet your child and family, explain what they do and how they can help your family. You will also be meeting the other nurses on the team so during times of concerns you can be assured that all StarShine nurses are very familiar with your child and their care as well as your plan.
