Care for Children

From newborns to teenagers, our care team understands the unique needs of children. We provide superior in-home care in a familiar setting where they feel safe and comfortable.

Caring for Children of All Ages

Although BrightStar® Home Care is most often known for the in-home services we provide to seniors, we also offer high-quality home care for children who are ill, care for children with disabilities and pediatric nursing. 

Our caregivers are fully-screened, certified, licensed and trained to help with anything from respite child care support to 24-hour special needs care. BrightStar Home Care can also help with child care needs for parents who are disabled and need a little extra assistance.
