BrightStar Care of Bentonville - Rating: - out of 5 starsMarch 1, 2014
"Brightstar helped me get my Mom back....After many years of serving as a caregiver as an only child to my dear Mother, during her long battle with cancer, I had reached a critical juncture.
My Mom was admitted into the hospice phase of her journey and we shared the common goal of keeping her comfortable at home as long as possible....
With the help of some dear friends I was able to care for her for a while. But I soon realized, as many primary caregivers do, that I needed the support of an outside agency to fill in at times as my Mom required 24 hour care.
The staff at Brightstar were always quick to respond and I loved the fact that I could call them anytime there was an inevitable change in schedule.... I was able to get consistent care from caregivers who were paired with my Mom based on her needs and preferences . An area of equal importance was the willingness of the office staff to arrange the schedule for my Mom's care around our preferences . If there was a concern it was always handled quickly and discretely. BrightStar staff made consistent and continuous efforts to accommodate the needs of both me and My Mom during her final days. Staff would come in and help with her care, clean and prepare meals.
Their help allowed me to simply have the time and gift of being a daughter...watching movies, baking, laughing, crying, talking and loving. The caregivers who volunteered, as well as those provided by BrightStar, all gathered to support me and my Mom. They had immense compassion and they took care of all the small but important
stuff (meals, cleaning ect.) so that my Mom and I could focus on the only thing that seems to matter in the end, spending precious moments with the ones you love.
I know both my Mom and I will be forever grateful for the support of all our dear friends and the caregivers from BrightStar"
