August, 2019: “For me as her daughter, they were instrumental to my mom's well being. My mom has a colostomy bag that was a major anxiety point for her, and they did a great job handling it. They understood that it was a problem for her, and they treated her with dignity and respect. I think it was the compassionate care that caused me to rate them so highly.  I've dealt with other home health agencies, and [the BrightStar Care team] were the easiest to work with. With others, I had to battle, but with BrightStar Care it was seamless. They were professional, compassionate, and responsive.  I thought they did a nice job of transitioning to the Hospice agency when we had to switch. My mom sometimes would have a colostomy emergency, and they did well at getting out there to help her.” – D.S., Carol Stream, IL
July, 2019: “My husband lives in a memory care unit, and they go during the day to help him with the activities, take him for walks, take him outside, and help him be in the right place at the right time. It gives me confidence that he is content and well-cared for. The caregiver who is there the most is creative, patient, gentle, kind, soft-spoken, and positive. They are matched very well. I like the people that they are sending to be a companion for my husband and the quality of care.” – M.H. Carol Stream, IL
June, 2019: “The caregiver is Cuban, and my husband was a Spanish teacher, so they speak a lot of Spanish. It allows me to get out of the house. The BrightStar Care team knows what they are doing, understands my loved one, and they do a great job of matching. The care that we have chosen is to make sure he takes his pills, and to clean him up. Our caregiver is always on time. She comes in and is very happy. When Diane calls, she asks how things are going, they are always checking up to make sure everything is going okay. “– J.P., Glen Ellyn, IL
May, 2019: “We had a terrific girl that came and helped for two weeks and I saw her in action. She [Caregiver] would do everything. She would clean and help with my wife's baths and do some medical things for her. She was here for 4 hours a day, and she was working all the time. She would do dishes, cook, clean, and anything that we needed. She was very cheerful and sweet and very caring of my wife. She was like our daughter or something, and she was always wanting to do anything she could. We couldn't have been happier.” – V.G., Wheaton, IL
April, 2019: “I love the lady that answers the phones that does the initial intake because she is really nice. I like the nurse we are assigned to and the substitute that she had because they have been so kind and caring. They help by checking the medication, and checking up to make sure that my daughter looks okay. If there is an emergency situation, they are willing to go over to lay eyes or assist her if she doesn't feel well. The caregivers are very kind and very professional because they are medically trained. I am really happy with what they are doing. ” – J.B., Mother of College Student, Oklahoma
March, 2019: “They were more flexible with the care that is what my father needed. Most home care companies did not want to give him the care he needed. I haven't had one complaint. He says his place hasn't looked that good in ages. My father gets senior citizen Meals on Wheels, and I couldn't find the number. BrightStar Care called and told me who it was and who he needed to talk to. He is very happy, now. He loves being able to have someone there to talk to for a little. He is very social. I know he doesn't have dirty clothes. He is using the dishwasher more. The care team is extremely helpful.” – K.B., Glendale Heights, IL
February, 2019: They are compassionate and of a high quality. Our caregiver has a high standard of excellence. We had a caregiver that did not work out, and when we gave [BrightStar Care] feedback, they changed that. [The caregiver] is very punctual and is there every day, and he goes above and beyond to help. The caregiver has a kind heart and pays attention to detail.  The Nurse Case Manager is great about keeping us informed of any changes in conditions or schedule. She made sure that [my uncle] had a good substitute when our caregiver had to leave town.– T. W., Niece of Client, Glen Ellyn, IL
February, 2019: For me, they help the most with communication. The caregiver adjusts her schedule on occasion to take her to appointments and lets me know what is going on when she is there. Even though it was difficult for my mom to meet new people, the caregiver took it really slow and my mom just loves her now. She goes to the store for my mom, makes her meals, and, most importantly, keeps her company. I know that the person that comes out to help my mom is excellent, communicates and helps out a lot. – D.P., Daughter of Client, Wheaton, IL
January, 2019: “My daughter has received services from the amazing Brightstar staff for the past 10 years. She requires transportation and assistance with errands in the community on a weekly basis. She has always been matched with warm and friendly caregivers who she relates to as friends. She always arrives home happy and feeling independent which is important to her. Most important to me is their ability to tailor services to my daughter's needs rather than the other way around.” – N.M., Wheaton, IL
December, 2018: “The [caregivers] who were assigned came on time, were competent, caring, thorough, and honest.  They helped with washing her hair, made her tea, and if necessary they helped feed her. The gal put a nice design on her nails and called me to give me a voice-to-voice update even though that wasn't required. It's nice that someone called to check-in. ”– M.A., Adult Daughter, Wheaton, IL
November, 2018: “They engage [the client] and treat him respectfully and with dignity. They hold his hand as needed for further encouragement to go with them and maybe to remove him from an area.  They have helped by just staying on top of things when I have needed to change things or needed the help.” – M.H., Spouse, Carol Stream, IL
October, 2018: “They know what the issues are, and they get it done. Other companies do not do what they say they will, but BrightStar Care does it exactly how they said that they would.  My caregiver helps with my showering and laundry. She also helped with making meals, dusting, and doing the dishes. – J.S., Winfield, IL
October, 2018: “The [BrightStar] caregivers show compassion through their kindness and how they don't take [client’s] outbursts personally.
