Culture-Specific Care and Prevention Programs
Responding to requests from people in diverse communities, we develop culturally-relevant services while identifying barriers to care, and then launch culture-specific care and prevention programs. Today, HealthStar offers culturally-relevant services that address the unique needs of populations such as African Immigrant, African American, Native American, Hispanic/Latino, and other communities.
First Nations Home Health
First Nations Home Health addresses the unique needs of our Native American population in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area, Duluth and Bemidji areas.
Circle of Life Home Care
Circle of Life Home Care is a home health care initiative offering personal care health services in the ten county area of northwestern New Mexico and Casa Grande, Arizona.
TRU Health and Wellness
An integrative multi-disciplinary clinic offering customized state of the art treatments with a focus on acute and chronic pain; including mental health and substance use challenges.
Specially Trained, Culturally Competent Staff and Providers
Each HealthStar team-member achieves and keeps current their cultural competence through specialized training and by fostering cultural care values. Adapting to different cultural beliefs and practices requires more than just tolerance: It takes sensitivity, flexibility, and respect for others’ worldviews. Cultural competence involves truly listening to the client, learning about their beliefs and understanding culture-driven health behaviors. Individuals who receive this level of care are more receptive and responsive to treatment modalities, leading to superior health outcomes.
