The BrightStar® approach is designed with a patient’s need for personal care and safety in mind. Working through life’s daily activities, managing an illness or disease, or coming home from the hospital are but a few of what can be stressful experiences. Inviting a professional caregiver into your residence should offer both home care patients and their families, “peace of mind.” With up to 24-hour-a-day care, and qualified caregivers who cater to a patient’s individual needs with a personal touch, the patient comes first in everything we do at BrightStar®.
We commit to a successful “match” of a caregiver to your needs. We know our employees well, and spend the time with you to understand your specific needs.
We are available to you. Our phones are always answered by a BrightStar employee; additionally we have an owner or senior executive team member available 24-7.
