The fear of trusting perfect strangers with your most precious and vulnerable family members is the hardest thing ever, especially when you are 1200 miles away from the situation. My 85 year old Mother who is in late stage Parkinson’s took a horrible spill down her stairs in her home and unfortunately it brought us to a place where we needed to start making some really hard decisions. My mother was released to go home with in home hospice care and with my dad being 85, he just couldn’t take on all of my mothers needs as hard as he tried it just became very overwhelming. Along comes Dan from BrightStar Care! From the first moment we spoke he showed such compassion and care for the situation my family was in. He and his nurse Tina came in almost immediately to assess what or needs were. Tina really took the time to ask questions and was so gentle with my mom. I don’t know how to truly show the amount of appreciation I have to Sandra and Julia who came into a chaotic situation and continued to show compassion and understanding not only to my mom but to my dad and everyone else who was in their home. Being 1200 miles away is hard enough but BrightStar treated me and my family with such respect, compassion, and caring. Their communication with me was unbelievable as they all kept me updated every step of the way. I HIGHLY recommend to anyone looking for a caregiving service to look no further than BrightStar Care. I can’t say enough great things about this company. Thank you Dan, Tina, Sandra & Julia for treating my family as they were your own!! Thank you just doesn’t seem enough!

BrightStar is an amazing service! Their attention to detail and kind care was very appreciated while my husband recovered from surgery. Both Bac and Bertha were helpful and ready to jump in to assist with any needs. Having them help gave us piece of mind and truly was a blessing.

I highly recommend BrightStar for all your caregiving needs. Especially Sharlice, who did an excellent job assisting me when I first came home from the hospital. I needed a lot of help and she was there every step of the way as I progressed. She accompanied me on doctors visits and made the whole experience much more manageable. Also Tina, my night Caregiver, for her excellent skills and competence, and helping me to become more independent, Kimberly for being so responsible and reliable, and Desiree, for her excellent work ethic. She was such a hard worker and always ready to help out.

BrightStar Care Of Carlsbad continues to be very involved in our North County Parkinson's community and has been invaluable in helping many of our folks. Dan Sweiger is a familiar face at support group meetings and social functions. He well understands the needs of people and families dealing with Parkinson's. I would recomment Dan and BrightStar Care without hesitation.

I want to say a huge THANK YOU SHARLICE!!!! She helped with my mom's care this pass week and my mom really enjoyed her company. My mom had just had surgery on Tuesday it was supposed to be a "easy recovery" back home that same night. But that was not the case. You know the saying when it rains it pours...well that was us. My sister and I got my mom home and tried to get her comfortable in bed.. Then the bed frame breaks. We both had a long night got mom into a hotel that night, I had the 1st shift with mom that night exhausted and overwhelmed. The next morning my sister called Brightstar care of Carlsbad. There is where she talked to Dan and got a game plan in set. His team worked so fast like really fast found a nurse and a CNA all within minutes. Am so glad my sister called and got the help we needed! My mom felt so comfortable with Sharlice and had great communication with my sister and I. We will definitely recommend having Sharlice as your CNA. Thank you so much!!!!!

Using Brightstar to help care for my husband has been a positive experience. They are responsive to our changing needs. Our caregiver Maria is top notch. She is always on top of things and goes above and beyond caring for husband. Very happy to have her in our lives. Thank you Brightstar.
