One thing that they have done to make my experience positive is answering any questions if I have any as well as being helpful. I like how the company is reliable as well as courteous, kind and helpful.

I do not think there is anything that they could do to make her life easier. Sometimes I am very happy with the agency, sometimes I am not.

They raised my rates in the middle of my care twice. They posed unclear guidelines for the caregivers, so she never really knew what she could or could not do according to the policies. They need to have back up caregivers.

They did exactly what we needed. We were in a crisis. I don't remember how we selected it since it was a crisis situation. Someone gave me their number and I called them. They helped us when we needed help.

There were a couple of CNAs that were not so good. I know that it is hard to find employees. It would have been more positive if each one of them was exemplary. One young girl was not trained. She quit after two days. Another one left before she was supposed to. I think that the owner was extremely helpful. She checked in to make sure that everything was okay. Ana the supervisor of the CNAs was compassionate. If a CNA did work out, she was there to replace them.

This is the best nursing care I have ever received. The nurses are knowledgeable, kind, caring , and turn unpleasant experiences into very pleasant ones. They go the extra mile always. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are on-time, they listen to my questions and concerns and take that into account in the treatment. You will be so happy if you go with BrightStar!

I live an hour away from my parents and I feel confident that they are getting the right care. I need more conversations with the owner. There are things that change with care with the elderly and so I would like to speak with the office staff more about the strategy of care. The caregivers have been good though.

I’m a current client of BrightStar Care (Lake Forest Location). I have high standards and it takes a lot to impress me. The quality of service that I receive beyond satisfies the company’s mission statement of providing “a Higher Standard of Home Care”. The quality of customer service is WORLD-CLASS and I feel treated like I’m part of their family. I’m EXTREMELY IMPRESSED with their OVERALL PERFORMANCE to the point I wrote a poem about BrightStar Care and nominated my main Caregiver (Maricon O.) to be the recipient of the 2020 Caregiver of the Year Award. * What services does the agency provide you? Homebound caregiving. * Does their staff typically arrive on time? Absolutely * How are your interactions with the caregiver(s)? Treated like family members. * How responsive has the agency been to your requests? Immediate response.

They could have better training and have the caregivers shadow someone. We had one good caregiver, and we were able to check in and see how things were going. She played with her and made the extra effort. Some other ones were on their phones a lot.

It really just come down to how much the medicine has helped me, but the biggest help has been the financial part. They are usually very timely returning calls. The nurses that they have provided have all been professional and good at their job. They have also been willing to work with me financially.

The girl that they sent told us had a broken back and couldn't help her take a bath or get out of bed. She was completely useless. The neighbors said they saw her talking to herself and wandering around. She disappeared at one point, and I called the owner. She stayed for a grand total of 45 minutes. They could get better employees. They need to be drug screened.

I had to have IV 5 days a week so that is how they helped me. They could have better qualified nurses. I had two caregivers that were horrible, they were incompetent, and no good. After those two nurses, I got one what was wonderful!

They were necessary. They need to stop bickering. They have to have a better understanding between the client themselves and the home they are in. The length of time they were spending with the patient wasn't significant.

I’ve been with Brightstar for about a year now. The nurse I currently see is by far one of the best nurses I’ve ever had. I’ve been hospitalized with six surgeries so that is saying something. Aneliese is kind, patient, and stops at nothing to make sure I’m fully comfortable every time she comes to see me. I get Cimzia shots twice a month. Scheduling is a breeze and I never have to worry about having that extra stress. I would highly recommend this company for home health as I have had such an amazing experience with it.

BrightStar cared for my husband for several months. We had the services of Joel most of the time and enjoyed his caring and kind ways. The owner was very helpful and very hands on. Unfortunately I have decided to place my husband of 38 years into a facility. If things change I will surely call on BrightStar.

They should have their people ready to go. Their caregivers need to be trained more. They should get people that don't talk too much. Caregivers have a tendency to talk a lot. There's nothing wrong with that, but they're here to help me cook.

I don't write many reviews but the services Mark provided me during a very stressful time of need far surpassed my expectations. As my mother's health failed this past week, I had the urgent need for nursing care for her 24hrs/day. Mark was able to staff our needs on extremely short notice with the most caring and well qualified nurses. As my mother took her final breaths, the nurses were there by my side to help understand the process and provide the comfort care she needed. Thank you for your excellent services.

They help my loved one with her personal care, which is helpful because I have a bad back and can't adequately do that for her. I tell people that I think they are easy to deal with and that they provide a good, reasonable service.

My family and I give the highest accolades to Mark and Claire, owner's of Brightstar Care in Lake Forest, Ca.! They have both spent enormous amounts of time on the phone and with my Dad to gather all the specifics of my Dad's care to provide the BEST fit for a caregiver for him. And indeed they did! Joel was a perfect match! He is kind, courteous, personable, and knowledgable towards all of Dad's needs. Even when Dad went to the hospital and Joel spent the day with him, I received nothing but great remarks from all the nurses about how helpful and attentive he was! All the Awards and Certifications this agency has received (there are many) is true to the test! Experiencing other agencies in the past, I wished I have known of Brightstar Care back them! I do highly recommend them to anyone looking for the best care for their loved one! Debbie M.

It is our goal to allow our parents to live independently, comfortably and safely in their own home. Thanks to Brightstar we have been able to do this. Claire at Brightstar OC is extremely responsive, friendly, thoughtful and compassionate. She and her staff have provided excellent care and staffing to my parents who have significant medical issues. Clare has personally made sure to address my parent's unique needs by finding and matching us with skilled care givers. She has been able to ramp up and down in an extraordinarily responsive manner. Thank You Claire and Brightstar!

BrightStar Care has given me some problems, when a new caregiver comes out, and the caregiver is not prepared for what to do. BrightStar Care does not do their job when preparing their new caregivers, because they are not given instructions. However, when my regular caregiver that comes in, the service is excellent.
