Customized Service to Fit Your Lifestyle

Starkey has learned that genuine service is obtained only when expectations are understood and met. To achieve this, Starkey comes to your home or service environment to customize service for you and your lifestyle. By participating in the on-site consultation and using Starkey’s Service Management System, you will be able to articulate your Lifestyle Service Vision, Service Priorities and Standards.

StarkeyCrestEach family has a unique Service Lifestyle. It may be formal, corporate, family friendly, casual or directed toward retirement and travel. Your priorities may include developing your entertainment style, providing an educational environment for your children, caring for overnight guests or making large-scale renovations. Your style of Service staffing must also be unique to you and must be positioned to effectively support your Service Vision.

Mrs. Starkey generally arrives in the late afternoon in time for an initial meeting to determine the principal’s Vision of Service.

  • Service Standards
  • Zoning and Housekeeping Task Sheet requirements
  • Staffing and Service Flow needs
  • Meet any current staff (more…)
