All 374 of them.
To the 374 employees who make up the team at Kirby Pines LifeCare Community, we thank you. Directors. Managers. Coordinators. Assistants. Medical professionals. Instructors. Chefs. But no matter what job title they hold, they all hold one in common: Hero. These heroes all come together to guide our community—and its residents—through these uncertain days just like they were any other. For that, we take comfort in knowing we are all in this together.
And while we offer our sincere thanks, we are not alone. Here’s what some Kirby Pines residents (and a visitor) had to say:
We totally agree with the guidelines Kirby staff members have put in place and appreciate the many ways they are helping keep the residents healthy and safe. Blessings to all of you—there’s not another place in the world we would rather be.”

I want to thank the entire staff at Kirby Pines for their exemplary handling of this pandemic. Their ability to respond immediately and never miss a beat is magnificent. You have kept us all safe, and we are very thankful.”
The most emotionally helpful outreach for me is the smile and ‘Hello’ I get each day. It’s a gesture that makes me feel that all of you are a part of my ‘new’ family.”
The residents smile when they see you. That says a lot about how you care for them.”
