With a background in marketing and sales, it was not until a health incident with his father that made him think to get into the health care industry. Through the incident, he experienced the panic and confusion that thousands of other sons, daughters, mothers, and husbands go through every year trying to quickly find a safe and caring place for their loved ones.  Soloff knew that he wanted to be a part of making the process easier for those in need and took over ownership of BrightStar Care of Morris County in 2015.
BrightStar Care recently conducted third-party research that shows that as families seek quality in-home care for their aging loved ones, the most important factors they consider include having a compassionate caregiver they can trust, somebody who understands the unique needs of their loved one, and having qualified, skilled medical professionals overseeing their care. However, the lack of clinical quality standards within the local and national private duty in-home care sector, combined with the public’s lack of knowledge of the industry, can make it challenging for Morris and Essex County families confronted with the need for care or professionals looking to select a trustworthy service partner.
