Compassion, integrity, family, excellence, trustworthiness, accountability, and diversity at BrightStar Care of Salt Lake City
Utah natives are making a difference in our community by providing a higher level of service and easing the burden of caring for loved ones. BrightStar Care of Salt Lake City / Mountainside is ready to provide you and your loved ones a higher, more consistent service for your home care needs. This is a local, family-run business led by Tammara Brown and her husband Alex Brown.
The BrightStar Care team can help keep parents and grandparents in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes, as well as assisting parents with their childcare needs. They can provide services at a nursing facility or in the comfort of your loved one’s home. From companionship, toileting, and hygiene assistance to in-home blood draws, we operate around the clock every day of the week to meet the client’s every need.
When Alex's father passed away, he was left as the sole caregiver for his 95-year old Grandma Jo. He met frustration head on when faced with juggling the services from multiple providers that cared for Jo in an assisted care facility. Frustrations ranged from simple things like making sure her teeth were brushed to more complex and personal things like ensuring she was taken on a daily walk through her favorite spots. Compelled by a need to find care that was more dependable, supportive and complete, they teamed with BrightStar Care, a national organization with over 300 locations, and started BrightStar Care of Salt Lake City to provide the high level of service that you expect and with attention to details that matter. Grandma Jo's family knows how overwhelming the responsibility of caring for a family member can be; Alex knew she deserved more and now that service is available here in the Salt Lake City area.
