- About Us
Community events make more possible for the people – more knowledge, more security, more joy. And there is no better indication of a thriving community than when the people can come together, for any reason or no reason at all. Whether it’s for recreation and just enjoying the company of others, community education or to promote health and wellbeing, local events that bring the people together are what strengthen a community from the inside out.
BrightStar Gurnee serves all of Lake County, including Zion, Waukegan, Libertyville, Mundelein, Lake Zurich, North Chicago, Antioch and more. Our community extends further than our Gurnee office location and so do we. Part of what makes our team so special is our passion for getting involved locally, whether it’s an elder care expo, Gurnee homecare education or even a philanthropic event – we not only serve the community, we are part of it. Join us.
