Testimonials

Even more than who we are and what we say is what we do. The true measure of the services that we provide is that we met and exceeded the expectations of those in our care and their families. Nestled deep within each unique client story is all that our caregivers are making possible – more flexibility, more security, more hope. And while we could just tell you about the kind of work we do, there is nobody better able to speak to the kind of care that BrightStar provides than those we serve on a daily basis.

Read on to hear from Oak Brook area BrightStar clients:
"My wife recently became fully bed bound. I called BrightStar to assist with daily care. I couldn’t be happier. A 10 out of 10 in customer satisfaction. Extremely responsive, professional, caring, flexible, reasonably priced. They answered my 1st major concern: how can I give my wife the best care? Quite by accident, I’ve discovered that they also solve my 2nd major concern: what happens if the solo caregiver goes down? They provide 24/7 emergency response and can provide 24-hour coverage as long as needed, with personnel who know how to care for my wife. I’ve worried about this scenario for 17 years, but not any longer. As a matter of fact, I’ve begun discussions with a BrightStar client care manager 1,800 miles away about companion services and emergency 24-hour coverage for older relatives there. My final thought, the corporation, I’ve watched the various clips, YouTubes, etc. It’s an impressive company, and one that seems to treat its own people as well as its clients." - Chas, January 2018
                                                                                                                                                                                 
"We were in immediate need of caregiver support for my 94 year old grandmother. I contacted Bright star and they were quick with answering my questions/concerns and got someone out to meet with us the following day. We have been extremely happy with our current caregiver Rochelle and cannot say enough good things about her. Rochelle has become a part of our family and takes care of my grandmother as if it were her own. Our family would highly recommend Brightstar if and when the time comes that help is needed for your loved one.​"  -Barb, December 2017
                                                                                                                                                                                 

"My family and I would sincerely like to thank the nurses provided during the final two weeks of my mom's life. Andrea, Stevie, Debbie, primarily gave such tremendous care and comfort to my mother. Even in her final moments , Stevie was there as comfort to us as we grieved. She was such a Godsend. I would also like to thank Maria for her patience in scheduling such wonderful staff. We did not make it easy but she certainly went above and beyond. Thank you again for your superior service during our most darkest hours." - Joan, November 2017
                                                                                                                                                                                 
"My parents have been using Brightstar for a few months now. We are beyond pleased with the care and caregiver. Elizabeth is our caregiver. I cannot say enough good wonderful things about her. She is kind, patient and caring! My parents are in the best hands! We are so grateful for her help. She is always there anticipating their needs. And still gives them space to feel a little independent. The nurses and staff have been always pleasant and knowledgeable and always there when you have a question. Would recommend 100%." - Maureen​, October 2017
                                                                                                                                                                                 
"Our experience with BrightStar was wonderful. Maureen made the transition simple for my parents. The head nurse was amazing with my mother, and the on-site nurse was wonderful with my dad. They were both very pleased with the care they rececived, and we will use BrightStar again in the future if needed." -Ronald, September 2017
                                                                                                                                                                                 

I wish to thank you for your kindness and wonderful care of my mother, last month. From my first call with Maria, the meeting with Jen, my middle of the night calls with Kelly, and all the excellent caregivers, I couldn’t have asked for a better team to have hired. I’d like to recognize that Lola, Lily, Sonya Rita, Miracles, and Debbie were all so kind and attentive and gentle with my mother. – Margot, August 2017


I want to tell you that  Rosemary would not have been with us nearly as long as she was had it not been for Jovita. She was so wonderful with her! – Fran, July 2017


Thank you for the care you provided to my mother, both at home and in hospice. Your staff and your caregivers are top notch. You truly bring peace and I am grateful for your service. – Lisa, June 2017


We absolutely love Trina. She could not be a better gift. She’s an angel I love her, my husband loves her, and my sister loves her. My dad said she’s caring and loved her so we want her every time, she’s just marvelous. – Lori, May 2017


I have been with BrightStar for 3 years, and I am VERY satisfied. I have met many of the ladies and they have all been thoughtful, clean, helpful, dependable, and I always feel safe with them. They all go out of their for me, and they take great care of my dog Ellie too. I always look forward to seeing them, they have become more like friends than caregivers, and I enjoy the time I have with them. Maria in the office is great, she always tells me who is coming, and does great with finding good matches. My nurse Sarah is always very nice when I see her too. I love all the girls that come help, but a special thank you to some of my lovely veteran girls Ashley, Brittany, and Debra, their time is always productive and caring, I don’t know what I would do without them. BrightStar is the best, I would never use anyone else.– Marjorie, April 2017


Our experience with BrightStar was wonderful. Maureen made the transition simple for my parents. The head nurse was amazing with my mother and the on-site nurse was wonderful for my dad. They were both very pleased with the care they received and will use Bright Star again in the future if needed!– Ronald, April 2017


We hired BrightStar last summer, and we were so happy with their services. They paired us with Brittany, she was perfect for my wife. She did so much for my wife and me, I don’t know what we would have done without her. My wife recently passed away, and she had dementia, she didn’t always remember Brittany’s name, but she was always happy to see her. She called her “her guardian angel”, she came to help even when she wasn’t scheduled, and always answered all of our questions. She even came to see me after my wife passed just to see how I was doing, I am forever grateful for BrightStar, and for Brittany.- Dietrich, March 2017


From my first phone call to BrightStar, everyone has been professional, respectful of my Mom’s wishes (although some were bizarre enough to be ignored by everyone, including me!), and willing to work with us scheduling caregivers during the Christmas and New Year’s holidays on short notice. Denise, my 91-year-old Mom’s live-in caregiver, has been an extraordinary woman, compassionate, knowledgeable, and willing to remain with my Mom until the end. BrightStar also cared for my father-in-law a few years ago as he, like my Mom, wanted to die with dignity in his own home. BrightStar, combined with Angel’s Grace Hospice have been a perfect team, coordinating end-of-life care for my Mom. A definite 5-stars for all!- Bob, March 2017

We were very happy with every caregiver that came to help care for my elderly father. Every person we worked with showed genuine concern and heartfelt care for my father. They all were wonderful and worthy of praise especially Regina and Joanna. – Alicia, February 2017

BrightStar has been wonderful to work with . They did a great job of matching care givers to take care of my mom. The staff is always friendly, helpful and flexible to make changes when needed. Our last caregiver Nisha has been a joy to work with. My mom enjoyed her company and she did a great job helping with my mom and getting her around as needed. I was updated on any issues or status on the day while I was not there. I would recommend her and the service to anyone looking for in home care. – Gretchen, February 2017

In September 2015 I lost my wife to a 13 year battle with breast cancer. Earlier the same year I was diagnosed with ALS, a terminal disease that ultimately makes you a prisoner in your own body as it paralyzes everything except for your mind. Needless to say there are some big changes in store for my three daughters and I. My muscle deterioration caused by my ALS reached a point in October for me to seek out help. The ALS support group I attend suggested BrightStar. I contacted them and met with one of the managers to discuss my needs. They paired me up with a wonderful person named Nikki who has been coming to our house five days a week. Nikki helps out with endless things around my house and of course takes care of me. Everything Nikki does helps me conserve my energy so that I can continue to have fun with my family and friends. Nikki has become a friend to me and my daughters and equally important, she has fallen in love with our dog Mia. Mia can’t wait until Nikki comes over in the morning so she can take her for a walk and spoil her with dog treats and love. BrightStar did a wonderful job pairing Nikki up with me and my family. Without Nikki and the wonderful support of BrightStar, my life would be very difficult. With ALS, the time I have here on earth is limited. However, I know I am truly blessed and lucky for BrightStar and Nikki for giving me the opportunity to live my life to its fullest. – Paul, January 2017

We’ve been working with BrightStar for over a month. Gervaise is so sweet and kind. She is able to assist my mom in a way that puts her at ease. I especially like the daily notes she leaves and that she makes sure mom gets to her appointments and for walks and exercise. Everyone has been very professional. It gives me peace of mind that mom is receiving wonderful care when I cannot be there. – Mary,  January 2017

Hi! My parents have been using Brightstar for a few months now. We are beyond pleased with the care and caregiver. Elizabeth is our caregiver. I can not say enough good wonderful things about her. She is kind, patient and caring! My parents are in the best hands! We are so grateful for her help. She is always there anticipating their needs. And still gives them space to feel a little independent. The nurses and staff have been always pleasant and knowledgeable and always there when you have a question. Would recommend 100%.

Our experience with BrightStar was wonderful. They sent staff to work in our home that where so committed to my mother in law that I was always calm and confident of the excellent care that was given. They provided so much relief to me that looking back on the experience I’m not sure how I survived without them. The staff that worked in my home became a part of our family. I would recommend them without any reservation. BrightStar is an outstanding organization with dedicated, caring workers. – Shawn, October 2016

__________________________________________________________________________________________________

My experience with BrightStar care has been very good. We needed a caregiver to assist our daughter with special needs three days a week on a temporary basis. The caregiver assigned to our daughter has been wonderful. She is kind, empathetic, attentive, and competent. She and my daughter quickly established a very good rapport. It is such a wonderful feeling to know that my daughter is in such capable hands. I can leave to go to work in the morning with complete confidence that she will be well cared for. – Jennifer, May 2016

I have referred clients and business partners to BrightStar Care on several occasions, and have never been disappointed with the results. – Carol, April 2016

__________________________________________________________________________________________________

Having worked in the Senior industry for 23 years, I have heard both good and bad about different companies that offer care and companionship to seniors. I was familiar with BrightStar both through their good reputation in the industry and what I saw when they were working with Residents at the community in which I was employed. When my Mother-In-Law was in need of some private care hours, it was a no brainier that I would recommend BrightStar to her and my family. They have stood up to their great reputation.

BrightStar, and Mom’s caregiver have been providing services for her about a year now. Her caregiver, Jovita, is kind, attentive, dependable and always goes beyond our expectations. When Jovita was out of town for a while, the ladies who filled in for her were also wonderful. The company has good employee retention, which speaks volumes about them being true to their mission. Employee retention is also good for the clients as they are able to have the same caring individual they have bonded with long term. We know Mom is in good hands. Also, whenever Mom has had a hospitalization, or a stay in nursing care, BrightStar has made sure to bring the same caregiver back when she returned to her apartment! This was very important to her. THEY GET IT and THEY CARE!

I have recommended BrightStar to others, and will continue to do so in the future. Thank you BrightStar!! – Frances, April 2016

Dear Bright Star – 
I want to take this opportunity to personally thank Nurse Maureen for attending to my needs on March 22. Her abilities to calmly and collectively take care of my mother-in-law in a “crisis mode” were outstanding. She was
M – arvelous
A – ttentive
U – nbelievably kind
R – espectful 
E – markable
E – mpathetic
N – aturally nice nurse

During her 12 hour shift she not only attended to the needs of my mother-in-law but gave me great advice about what to perhaps expect for surgery prep, what to perhaps consider for post-surgery care and other things to remember about home and health care. Her advice was invaluable to me! She was, sincerely, an angel in a time of need. She made the situation a calm and manageable one for all and her loving care for my mother-in-law was evident throughout the day. Her hug for me at the end of the shift sealed the deal!

Thank you Bright Star, too, for the immediate and prompt response to my cry for help and for assisting with all my questions and concerns so kindly. The staff who answered the weekend phone call put Jen in touch with me immediately and she took over from there. Brittany and Kara and the weekend receptionist couldn’t have been kinder, understanding or caring. Thank you all!

Unbelievable – you truly are “bright stars” and Maureen a little more like a shining constellation. – MCK, March 2016

“BrightStar and Jovita, my mom’s caregiver, have been providing services for her about a year now. Jovita has a friendly, gentle and bubbly personality, and always goes beyond our expectations. She is very proactive and helps Rosemary in every way she is able. If there is anything she is concerned about with Mom, she will give us a call to let us know. We know Mom is in good hands.

I have recommended BrightStar to others and will continue to in the future. Having a background in the industry, I know what to look for, both red flags as well as good care. BrightStar provides capable and caring caregivers as well as being a capable and caring company themselves.

Thank you BrightStar and Jovita. We know Mom is getting quality care!” – Fran, March 2016

“Bertha cared for my Mom for 1 year, prior to her death. It was hard for Mom to accept live in help, but it was a necessity. Bertha never hovered or made any attempt to invade mom’s privacy, but attended to Mom’s needs quietly. Her lilting voice and gentle approach were appreciated by my Mom. She also took time to take good care of Mom’s beloved Marco ( the cat).

The Brightstar office was very responsive and helpful when schedules needed to change. When Bertha unexpectedly needed to take some time away, coverage was quickly provided.

Supervising RNs were helpful, suggesting options to improve care.” – Susan, February 2016

We are providing 24/7 care for mom with a combination of our staying with her in her own home during the week complimented with Brightstar caring for her on the weekends. We are so thankful to be able to have a partner that we can depend on allowing us to recharge. Brightstar has always sent competent and loving caregivers and we have become very attached to them. Thank you Brightstar for helping us care for mom.” – David, December 2015

“Ledi has been with us now for only six months.  At first I wasn’t sure she could handle my husband – he is very stiff and not an easy transfer.  But each time she came back she surprised me with new ideas.  Ledi figured out different ways to move him from bed to chair.  She talks to him, sings to him, and asks him about his favorite music, which she plays for him on her iPhone.  She thinks about different ways to keep him engaged and smiling instead of constantly watching TV.  Before she leaves she cleans everything – bathroom, bedroom, chair and then takes out the garbage.  She is a shining example and could give classes to other caregivers!”  Janet – June 2013

“Jim, I never really had a chance to talk with you after my Mom passed away. We knew from the moment we hired your firm that she was destined to die. I wanted to thank you for the exemplary nursing care that she received during her final days. The nurses were kind, caring and compassionate. They tended to my Mom’s needs and helped us through the entire hospice experience.

My Mom was especially fond of Beth S.  She would move Beth’s beautiful blonde hair just off of her face whenever she would lean over to assist her.  It was so kind and sweet to watch the two of them interact.  Beth has all of the patience in the world and is as sweet as they come. My Mom also really liked the night time nurses aid, Chioma from Nigeria.  Mom would always tell her to come close and Mom would pat her on the shoulder.  Another fine woman.

I don’t know how these ladies have attained these abilities at such a young age, but they are angels sent from heaven.

Thanks for letting your angels be a part of our lives.” – Cheryl, April 2013

“Jim, we were so impressed with every aspect of our experience with BrightStar.  From Terri in the main office, to our initial meeting with you, and especially with my Mom’s caregivers:  CNAs Mary and Sheila, and last but not least your RN Care Coordinator Elaine.  When my Mom was slipping away, Mary was an absolute pillar of strength for me, knowing exactly what to do and doing it with such compassion.  And I can’t say enough about Elaine.  She provided total and complete support – again with such compassion.  She guided us through every step of the process.  We could not have gotten through the day without her reassuring and compassionate presence.

I have worked in healthcare for over 30 years, most of it in process improvement and patient / family satisfaction.  You definitely exceed any other company or service I have encountered.  You have a truly professional staff, but more importantly, very human, compassionate people.  Thank you so much!” – Mary Sue, November 2012

“My wife and I faced a difficult situation this year when my mother, who lives in a different state than us, required immediate 24/7 care in her home.  I contacted BrightStar, and their fees were competitive and the services were the best offered.  BrightStar was quick to help us sort through Mom’s needs and provide medical services to ensure she was well cared for.  The caregiver provided is an excellent communicator, well-organized, and above all, compassionate.  BrightStar’s Care Coordinator Marilyn was also quick to connect with my mother’s doctor and verify her prescriptions and medical needs.  We are very pleased with the care and attention to detail BrightStar has given Mom and look forward to working with them long into the future!” – Randy & Judy, January 2011

“All of your CNAs and nurses providing continuous care hospice staffing for my father are first-rate and genuinely care about their patients as well as family members.  Everyone I met from BrightStar acted as though they were members of the hospice team and I believe it’s a testament to your organization.  I wanted to reach out to you to applaud you for your great work and to ensure that all the staff at BrightStar receive the recognition they deserve.” – John, May 2010

“During a difficult transition period in caring for my mother, I was fortunate to be referred to BrightStar.  I found the people at BrightStar to be immediately accessible, flexible in their scheduling and accommodating to our specific needs.  I would not hesitate to recommend BrightStar to a friend.” – Judith, April 2010
