Director Spotlight

Meet Debbie

Hello. My name is Debbie Balk and I am the Director of StarPoint Home Care. After helping my own parents transition to accepting outside help for their safety and health, I discovered my passion: helping seniors age in place, while minimizing their risks.

At StarPoint, our Jewish values drive our mission to ease the worry families or aging parents might have about future life decisions. Our compassion and attention to detail empowers our clients to live with dignity, security, and peace of mind.

If you’d like to learn more, please don’t hesitate to call me.

Manager Spotlight

Meet Alicia

Hi. My name is Alicia Reid and I’m the Manager of StarPoint Home Care. Every day, people entrust us to care for their loved ones, and that is a responsibility I take very seriously.

In my role, I am responsible for training and managing StarPoint’s full team of caregivers. But what really drives me are the personal connections I have with our seniors. I like to say our hearts beat for our clients, and it’s true! The human interaction and the relationships we develop are what makes this kind of work so fulfilling and special.

Home care enables a person to live as independently as possible without having to give up the comforts of their own home. It allows them to be in a familiar environment, sleep in their own bed at night, and stay close to loved ones like family, friends, and pets. It also brings peace of mind to know they have access to skilled, consistent, reliable care when it is needed, even if those needs change.

StarPoint Home Care does not currently take Medicaid or Medicare insurance. Should you have a long-term care (LTC) insurance plan, StarPoint will work diligently with you LTC to get your services covered under your policy. Please note that many LTC policies have an elimination period that you must meet before services are covered.

No. Home care services can be provided wherever home is—a private residence, a senior living community, or while staying with a friend or family caregiver.

What StarPoint provides is Home Care- nonmedical private duty assistance- things like toileting, bathing, dressing, meal preparation, companionship, often described as Activities of Daily Living (ADL).

Home Health Care is a different service, often covered by medical insurance and includes nursing, physical, speech and occupational therapy and wound care.

All StarPoint aides are background checked and drug screened. Once Director Debbie Balk meets and assesses the client, she works with her team to make the best possible match in personality and needs. If at any time you are unhappy with a caregiver, we will work hard to fix the care to your satisfaction.

Our team is dedicated to providing family-like care. We get to know our clients and caregivers, and consider our team a family. In addition, as a non-profit, all of our proceeds go directly back to serving the Cincinnati Jewish Community, through our parent agency, Jewish Family Service of Cincinnati.
