Our Bristol / Kingsport / Johnson City Location

About Us

Local BrightStar Care owners, Larry and Lea Ann Bernethy, have always had a desire to help others.
They saw the growing needs of an aging population, so, with their son Patrick Bernethy, and their daughter, Tara Bernethy Cox, the family opened BrightStar Care - Bristol in June 2009.

They believe their mission is to provide the highest quality of home care to families in Bristol, Johnson City, Kingsport, Elizabethton, Jonesborough, Erwin and the surrounding area. Their dedicated staff is committed to your peace of mind, caring for patients of all ages with compassion, dignity and respect.

The answer to your question is “Yes, we can!” Just tell us what you need; we’ll tailor a service plan and make all of the necessary arrangements. We are here to our clients and their families live their best. We specialize in filling the gaps in service when Medicare or Hospice is unable to meet all your needs. Call to find out how we can work with these other agencies to provide safety, the full spectrum of care, and peace of mind. We are dedicated to helping you any time, any place. Reach a LIVE member of our Management Team 24/7 at (423) 989-7827.

Proudly serving Kingsport, Bristol, and Johnson City and communities within the Tri-cities area.
