Our mission at BrightStar Care of Chicago is to improve the health and wellbeing of those entrusted to our care. From our industry-leading employment standards to RN oversight on every Plan of Care, we are committed to the highest levels of quality, support, and customer satisfaction. As a result of this ongoing commitment to quality, we have earned accreditation from The Joint Commission, the same organization that accredits the nation’s best hospitals; as well as the 2017 Best of Home Care – Employer of Choice Award from Home Care Pulse, a national third-party quality and satisfaction research firm. Only the nation’s top-ranking home care providers earn this distinction based on caregiver satisfaction scores.
BrightStar Care of Chicago has contracted with Home Care Pulse to gather feedback from their caregivers via live phone interviews each month. We received high scores from our caregivers in areas such as training, office communication, caregiver/client compatibility, and overall job satisfaction.
Joint Commission Accreditation for High Quality Home Care
Our employment standards and practices have received the Gold Seal of Approval from the Joint Commission. The Joint Commission is the nation’s oldest and largest standards setting and accrediting body in health care and has rigorous standards that go above and beyond state requirements. This accreditation is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting superior performance standards, and puts your local BrightStar Care within the elite group of less than 10% of in-home health care agencies that have received this accreditation.
