Overall my experience with Brightstar has been great. Karen and Gina made the onboarding process pleasant. They answered all my questions thoroughly. My mother LOVES her caregiver so that alone has made it so well worth it. The only bummer is the fee associated with using a credit card but I understand why they do it. Since the service is great, we are willing to pay it. Would definitely recommend Brightstar to any family looking for some help caring for a loved one.

We haven’t always had a good experience with health care agencies in the past. Working with Bright Star Care has relieved all our worry. The office staff has been fantastic. My husbands caregiver Matt is the greatest. He is a good fit for our household. He’ll do any task I throw at him. We really appreciate him. Thank you Bright Star!

My family and I could not have been more pleased with BrightStar Care of Barrington & McHenry County. We began needing assistance with just a few minor things for a loved one and they were always on time and consistent in the genuine care and well-being of our loved one. But as passed our needs grew, and here’s where I truly saw the depth of the care and genuine concern for helping provide assistance. I have worked with other companies that provide assistance for the care of loved ones, but what really made BrightStar stand apart from the others is they got to know me and listened to me and help me figure out what may be needed before I even knew how my family health needs may change. They knew how to solve the problem before the problem began, and that made all the difference in the world. I would highly recommend using the services provided by BrightStar Care of Barrington & McHenry County for your family if you need help -small or large as that help may be. They are truly in extension of your family when it comes to caring for your needs.

We have just started using their services for my husband (who has Parkinson's and fractured his hip) and are very impressed. Their staff is highly professional, and very caring and compassionate. I am so glad we chose them to provide these essential services and very much recommend them to anyone else that needs similar services.

We used BrightStar Care to assist us after I had surgery. Karen and Gina made the initial introduction process very easy and comfortable. Stephanie and Cindy were very helpful and friendly. And our caregiver, Kaitlin was spectacular. She followed our routine of how we do things, was extremely friendly and was just an all-around great person. I would recommend them to anyone who needs home help and will definitely use them again.

I could not be happier with our decision for choosing Bright Star for our moms care. When I first researched possible in home care agencies, I called Bright Star first. Karen Pinderski spoke with me in depth about her company, but she went even further and gave me so many possible questions to ask other agencies as i carried on with my search. I as just amazed at her sincere knowledge and help for me because I didn't know where to start. But, after I spoke with her, that was all I needed. I knew I wanted to use her Bright Star. I had to tell my brothers about her and the business, and they too were sold. My mom's caretaker is Janice, and coming from my mom... she is "Really nice and does a lot" for her. Being that I m the only daughter in the family, I had spent my summer going back and forth to my moms house to bathe her. Now, Janice does that for me. And my mom said she is very good at it. My mom is 91, sits in her recliner and needs this help walking (uses a walker). Janice also helps my mom with her Physical Therapy exercises. Mom just finished with the therapists, so I hope she and Janice can continue with the exercises. Janice has also make my mom salads and set up food for her. She also has cleaned the house. I live 250 miles away, and it is very comforting to know she gets a shower each week safely and has her food set up for her. I would highly recommend Bright Star to anyone in need of Sr. Care.
