Our team is like a family, bound together by the same core values and passion for helping others. Click on the links below for an introduction to some of our family members!
At BrightStar Care, we believe in investing to build the skills of our nurses and caregivers. We believe this allows our team to provide the absolute best care in the industry and live up to our ambitious goal of implementing a “Higher Standard of Home Care”. Each of the groups pictured below attended one of our team seminars- where we train our people to provide care for clients with specific conditions. We then test and certify these caregivers to work directly with those clients- knowing they can provide the best care. Each class is taught by subject matter experts and includes instruction on the best-practice care skills. We have teams in the areas of hospice, dementia, stroke, congestive heart failure, COPD, total joint replacement, pneumonia, etc. We also have teams for our nurses that teach emerging best practices in skilled care- including the areas of wound care, home infusion, ventilator and tracheostomy care, enteral and parenteral feedings (G-tube and J-tube), and skilled pediatrics.

From a Former Caregiver
"I just wanted to thank you for helping me start my career in nursing. Since working as a CNA then RN for BrightStar of Fairfax, I was able to start working as a Neuroscience/Stroke nurse in Salisbury, MD. Now I'm almost a year out from being eligible to take the CNRN Exam to certify as a neuroscience nurse. Starting my nursing career with BrightStar has really opened many doors for me. Even though I work full-time at my hospital, I have still been wanting to work more. Today I met with BrightStar of Easton, MD and have been hired as a one of their PRN RN's. My career with BrightStar continues :)
I just wanted to thank you both again."
