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.

We have had the best experience with BrightStar Care, our Caregiver Kathryn is delightful, competent and compassionate exceeding all of our expectations for our Mom. She shows initiative and self-direction with our Mom and the results have been very positive. Dan and Tina were very thorough during the intake process and made the very best selection when they sent Kathryn to our home. Jasmine filled in for Kathryn the first week due to scheduling conflicts, but she was equally competent and caring to our Mom. Our home atmosphere has positively changed. Thank you Dan and Tina!

Marcia T has been taking care of my 94 year old mother-in-law for over a year and she does a great job. She is knowledgeable, helpful, and on time. She has developed a friendship with Mom and shown both patience and initiative. She always coordinates with our schedule and is careful to keep us informed of any changes. We enjoy and appreciate Marcia's help--she's a wonderful caregiver!

I highly recommend BrightStar and I would like to thank Tina, Nancy, and Rachel for all that they do! BrightStar Care of Carlsbad's manager, Tina, is committed to excellence and has an amazing ability to match skilled nurses with the specific needs of their clients. Nurses Nancy A. and Rachel F., are extremely responsive to their client's needs. They are known for their flexibility and their willingness to work closely with their clients to ensure that they are getting the support they need. I have been a BrightStar client for the past two years. I receive weekly IV infusions for a rare genetic disorder and have been receiving weekly IV infusions for the past ten years. Nancy A. and Rachel F. are two of the best nurses I have ever had! They are extremely talented and great at setting IVs.

In 2019, Dan and Susie Sweiger opened BrightStar Care of Carlsbad with a passion for making a real difference for seniors and others with medical disabilities.  They have quickly become one of the 100 best home care agencies in all of North America.
