Joining forces to improve caregiving and local resources in MA
At BrightStar Care, we strive to be an active member in the Worcester County healthcare and business community by participating in and contributing to organizations and events. We volunteer our time and talents to assist non-profit and charitable organizations in raising money and organizing events. By engaging with other healthcare, business and charitable organizations, we can identify opportunities for collaboration that have a positive impact on our region and our BrightStar clients.

Regional Geriatric and Elder Organizations
These organizations bring together diverse groups of geriatric and elder service providers who check their competitive relationships at the door to focus on education and collaboration. They meet at a different provider’s office or facility each month, usually with a guest speaker some of which qualify for CEU’s. Here are some organizations in which we participate and support: Worcester Area Geriatric Society (WAGS) Worcester Elder Networking Group (WENG) Geriatric Providers Council For more information on any of these organizations, please contact our BrightStar office.

Cognitive Dynamics & Dementia Dynamics
Inspired by the real life story of his father, Lester Potts, Neurologist Dr Daniel Potts is an expert care giving models for the cognitively impaired in which known or hidden talents are sought out and developed through expressive arts, thereby enhancing hope and human dignity. Dr Potts formed two organizations to further the research, advocacy and application of this model. The Cognitive Dynamics Foundation is dedicated to improve the quality of life of patients with cognitive disorders and their caregivers through education, research and support of innovative care models which promote human dignity, especially those employing expressive arts. Dementia Dynamics LLC educates professional and volunteer care givers in proactive, compassionate ways of caring for dementia partners. They have a wonderful new caregiver book available which is a valuable tool for family care givers. Click Below To Visit: Click Below To Visit:
