Our experienced and compassionate staff delivers home care for a wide range of injuries and illnesses, including the common ones described below. Our Registered Nurse (RN) will create a personalized plan for your loved one and provide oversight of their care.
BrightStar Care® is equipped to offer assistance with additional conditions — please contact your local office to discuss the specific care you or a loved one needs.
Alzheimer’s and Dementia
We customize our care services to the specific needs of those living with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Your loved one will be tended to by our staff that has been specially trained in memory care. Our goal is to enable your loved one to live with dignity and safety, enjoy optimal physical and emotional health, and maintain connections to the people, places, things and memories that matter most to them.
Individuals with neurological disorders can have a wide range of needs. Those living with advanced-stage illness may require around-the-clock palliative care and highly specialized support, while others may need only basic assistance or personal care on a part-time basis. In addition to Alzheimer’s and dementia support, we also provide a variety of services for clients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and other neurological conditions.
Individuals who suffer from congestive heart failure (CHF) or have experienced acute myocardial infarction (AMI/heart attack) often need assistance to maintain or improve their health and quality of life. This short-term transitional care may include support and education to develop new lifestyle habits that promote heart health such as diet and exercise, as well as ensuring medication adherence.
COPD and Pneumonia
Depending on the severity of your loved one’s chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or pneumonia, we’ll coach them on proper inhaler use and encourage healthy habits for improved wellness and optimal quality of life. We can also provide nurse-led medication management, oxygen therapy and personal care to foster a healthy recovery, with the ultimate goal of reducing COPD-related hospital trips.
When a family member has cancer, it’s okay to turn to professional care to supplement what you’re able to do. BrightStar Care can provide companion care to help with transportation, personal care for basic daily activities or skilled nursing to meet your loved one’s medical needs; services like these can also provide you with respite during a stressful time.
Whether your loved one is experiencing pain, lacks strength, has reduced function or is dealing with other symptoms from osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, we’re able to provide a solution that meets their needs. Our local teams can address nutrition, movement and daily activity support, as well as monitor symptom progression and provide medication oversight.
BrightStar Care can help you or a loved one manage this complex disease. In addition to blood glucose level checks, insulin injections, assistance with an insulin pump and foot inspections, we can also provide family education to increase overall support for your loved one.
