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.

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.

Our Story

Owners Carl Kettler and Jeff Emrich know what it's like to be sole caregivers in the family because they both took care of their ailing moms. Carl and Jeff both searched for help, but couldn't find the right mix of expertise, flexibility, and compassion they wanted so they partnered up and founded BrightStar Care-North Suburban. "We have an amazing team," Carl proclaims proudly, "and are able to 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 Evanston, Skokie, Wilmette, Northbrook, Glenview, Kenilworth and Lake Forest. To those in need, we are neighbors indeed -- a family of professionals happily serving your family to make life easier and fuller for all."
