We recently needed backup childcare and BrightStar fufilled our request through my work Bright Horizons benefit. BrightStar sent Jeanette to watch my two children and she was prompt, professional, responsible and FUN! She was warm, but took charge to make sure the kids felt comfortable and were busy with activities. She followed the directions I gave, but solved smaller problems independently. Finally, she left a recap of the day in case we didnt cover off on questions before she left. I have request Jeanette for future dates bc she was AMAZING!

BrightStar Care first began providing care for my father last December. His current caregiver team is very caring and attentive. Emma has been there since January. She is kind, responsible, communicates with my father and me well, and genuinely cares about his wellbeing. Maureen is newer (June) to our care team. She and my father hit it off on day one. She is compassionate, caring, communicative and very conscientious. When she was new to the team, she would call with questions and provided regular reports. Best of all, is that Emma and Maureen work well together on their transition days to make sure that my father receives the best possible care. There is a seamless transition that makes it good for all concerned. He loves to converse with both of them and engage in meaningful communication and solving the world's problems. He is always trying to teach them new things and learn from them as well. A sharp mind at 93 always needs stimulation. Thank you.

Bright Star sent excellent caregivers to help my husband after he suffered from a stroke. My family is forever grateful for the warm and compassionate care given during a most difficult time. Tash, Shanda, and Laura created a comfortable atmosphere in our home for all of us.

The whole experience, from scheduling the visits, to making payment at the end was very easy, and staff was a pleasure to work with. I used Brightstar for a few post-surgery in-home nurse visits. Nurse Joanne did an excellent job and was very thorough in her assessments and care. I would definitely recommend and use Brightstar again.

I am writing this review about Agbonifo Woghiren. Agbonifo (Michael) was my husband's night time caregiver for one month while I (his wife) was recuperating from a total hip replacement. Michael was reliable, calm and caring. He demonstrated good problem solving ability. We trusted him and felt safe with him. We have no hesitancy in recommending Michael as a caregiver. We would definitely want to have Michael come back when we needed a caregiver. He was like family to us!

We cannot thank Jeff and BrightStar enough for the invaluable help and support they provided my dad and our family at the end of my dad's life. Jeff treated all of us with kindness, empathy, and the utmost respect, and pulled together a schedule of caregivers to meet our needs with barely 24 hours notice. The four women who worked with my dad were all amazing - caring, professional, competent, kind. Diana went the extra mile, however, always trying to figure out what my dad might need or what might help him, staying by his side, and helping my mother with what she needed. We are so grateful to you all.

Jeff helped us find a skilled nursing professional to help out my 80-year old father (and my mom) with his feeding tube while I was on vacation. Toy Canada was the nursing care professional who came to help and she was fantastic. After meeting her, I was comforted by the fact that she would be coming by each evening during my absence to help them. When I returned from vacation, both of my parents relayed to me how wonderful she was and how she went above and beyond to assist them with their various needs. She was kind, extremely knowledgeable and an immense help to all of us.

We have really enjoyed our experience using BrightStar. The staff and Jeff in particular were super helpful in getting care setup for us on very short notice after my dad had a severe fall and needed 24/7 care. Delice (Dee) has been our caregiver and has been fantastic. She is super sweet and supportive and you can tell she really cares about our dad. She has been great in caring for him, making meals, helping him around the house and caring for his every need. We'd highly recommend Dee.

BrightStar has provided caregivers for my husband for over 2 years. In spite of scheduling difficulties and last minute cancellations, they have always managed to have someone here, and they have worked hard to assure consistency. Azu has provided excellent care 4 days a week for almost 2 years, and Ola has been with us 3 days a week for 7 months and has also provided excellent care.. These caregivers have been capable and compassionate and have really become part of our family. I would certainly recommend BrightStar for anyone who needs care a few hours a day or 24/7.

Our Story

Owner Jeff Emrich knows what it's like to be a sole caregiver in the family because he took care of his ailing mom. Jeff searched for help, but couldn't find the right mix of expertise, flexibility and compassion he wanted, so he founded BrightStar Care-North Suburban. "We have an amazing team," Jeff proclaims proudly, "and are able to provide the full range of in-home services we know those aging in place, and the people who love them, want and require. We are privileged to serve Chicago's North Shore, including Northbrook, Glenview, Glencoe, Winnetka, Kenilworth, Wilmette, Evanston and Skokie . To those in need, we are neighbors indeed -- a family of professionals happily serving your family to make life easier and fuller for all."
