We give the kind of high-quality care and support that can truly make a difference. See what clients and healthcare organizations are saying about BrightStar Care of Carroll & Frederick County.

John Kraynak, of Frederick, shifted from his career in engineering to home care, something he had been hoping to do for years since his father fell ill with dementia 15 years ago and his mother became his primary caretaker. He saw the stress it caused her and the strain it put on their relationship.

Despite my mother's love and efforts and dedication and great relationship with each other, she wasn't prepared to be caregiver for my father," he said. "Things would happen and she didn't know how to deal with it."

Additionally, when he tried to help his parents by making phone calls for them and setting up in­ home care, he realized just how difficult the world of in-home care was to navigate.

"I kind of said to myself, 'Ok, at some point there has to be an easier way for people to do this during this difficult stage,"' Kraynak said.

Since he is not a health care professional, Kraynak began looking into already established businesses and franchises that he could use as a jump-off point. After looking into several different options, he settled on Brightstar Care for its values, including its high standard of care and commitment to continuum of care.
