Providing RN oversight on every case from day one
Claire M. Joudy RN, BSN, CLNC
How long have you been a Nurse? I have been a Registered Nurse for 23 years. I received my Bachelor’s of Science Degree from Western Connecticut State University, in Danbury, CT. What experience do you bring to BrightStar Care®? I have been a successful, results-driven clinician and manager in many different health care settings including hospital-based acute care, clinical resource management, assistant director in geriatric care and rehabilitation, home health supervisor and resident care director in assisted living. I have also participated in numerous community-based and not-for-profit organization programs and consulted with attorneys on medical cases. What aspect of your job are you most passionate about? I am passionate about BrightStar Care and excellence in home care. Supporting families and clients alike throughout the rigorous and sometimes daunting challenges of home care, brings me the most satisfaction. This includes educating them about their health and well-being. I provide guidance on the community resources available to them to achieve the goal of aging in place by maintaining their independence at home. It also gives me tremendous pleasure to teach, train and support our caregivers so that excellence can be delivered to our community. I have been the Director of Client Services for BrightStar Care of Western Connecticut for more than five years. However, I prefer to call myself Director of Client Services because the clinical piece is only a part of the very large whole that makes up caring for others in their homes. I provide A Higher Standard of Care for our BrightStar Care® clients by… I ensure that qualified, caring and competent staff provides quality care to our clients 24 hours a day. Each BrightStar client receives a customized approach to their care based on what is important to them. We value our clients as individuals and celebrate the lives they have lived and entrusted to our care.
