We have an excellent caregiver, but the agency seems to feel they can send substitutes willy nilly. We want the same people everyday. I find the staff very agreeable and willing, but the communication between the people arranging the appointments and the care worker is poor. I hear the caregiver tell me when they will be late.

They take the responsibility of the my brother, who is living in an independent senior facility. They make it possible for him to stay there, and they make it possible for to understand what's going on. They're very consistent, and they follow up to make sure that the caregivers are here when they're supposed to be here.

It's good to have other people in the house to interact with him. They are kind. I can go to work because they always show up. It's a huge relief for me. They are very compassionate. It's very good. The people are kind, and they always send someone. We are never left in alert. If there is a problem, they find a replacement. We are always covered.

The communication was good. They were pretty good with dad overall, the office, the caregivers, everything.

When I first got hurt I couldn't do anything, but I am weaning out of my brace, so I can do more. They are here. I already have recommended them. Everybody that has come out here has been nice and very helpful.

Once the caregiver gets used to being here, life gets easier. The staff is competent and does a good job. They are often helpful with home chores as well.

They sent an excellent person to us who was always on time and did her job. They worked until they found someone that worked for us, and she was wonderful.

They could have more defining the role. I know they know it, but I don't know it. They could improve the orientation and the introduction of the employees. They don't introduce me to them, and I don't know who is coming on a regular basis. They could improve on that.

They have helped him with eating, they cook his meals, and they've done what needs to be done. Roy has been pleased with the services, and we've never had any problems.

The caregivers take my mom to her appointments. The company has good values, and you get your moneys worth. I would recommend them to others.

It's been a great service. I was almost bedridden, and now I'm walking. It's been a delight to work with them. They've been marvelous, and they send out very nice caregivers.

They were there on time. They could come in the middle of the night. I wasn't sure how well that was going to work out. They said they would be there, and they were. I liked the fact that they could put a team together at the last minute. I liked the people that came to the house.

I didn't have to worry about her because I had somebody with her. It gave her something to look forward to and stimulated her mentally and emotionally. It took us time to find the right mix of caregivers, but when we got them, it worked beautifully for everybody.

They send good people. They've helped me by caring for my father because he wouldn't be able to live in an independent care facility without them. The caregivers they send are excellent, very dependable, and give very good care.

They could keep her busy with more activities. Some caregivers do that and others don't as much. Some just sit my loved one in front of the TV and hang out while they watch. A lot of the caregivers are very good. Some of them are young and not quite as sharp or experienced as the older ones.

My wife is fighting cancer and had knee surgery. We really appreciated them for all the help they gave us. I liked them because of the ladies that came who were personable and became our friends.

I just think they could have better follow up. They need to have more communication about the caregivers and the individual before the caregiver comes out to the home. Supposedly there's a booklet but I didn't get it. Every time we got someone new we had to go through the process.

I'm 3,000 miles away from my mother, so I have a peace of mind knowing that someone is there with her. They seem very responsive, and they're easy to work with.

We use them one hour a week to get our long-term insurance to kick in. We are considering having them come in more now. The people that we have come into contact with are professional and nice. Everyone has done pretty close to what they said they would do.

It was great for me, since I trusted them. My husband was basically comatose, so he wouldn't have known the difference, but they still cared. All of the people that came to take care of him, were caring, on time, and pleasant, good people.

They are 93 years old and get frustrated easily. The people that we have seen take care of my mother-in-law have been genuine and caring people.

We only used them two times. I think they could have paid more attention to what my wife was trying to tell them, she couldn't communicate very well. Their communication skills were marginal. Their personnel seemed skilled enough, but they are just a little bit lazy.

There should have been a primary caregiver and not many caregivers while I was gone. They are very accommodating with our needs.

The second caregiver was very nice. The first caregiver wasn't so nice. The caregiver that was with my loved one during the late night, they really liked. They were very kind and compassionate.

All that was promised was NOT given. There was NO CONSISTENCY IN CAREGIVERS!!!! It was horrible. The scheduling was very difficult. The scheduling staff was rude and incompetent. Some of the caregivers were good, yet never returned. This matter was brought to the company’s attention multiple times.

They are providing an afternoon of support so that she is able to remain independent. The assessment that was done was done done professionally. Their caregivers have been appropriate to my mom's needs. They have had good communication with me.

It served the purpose that we hired them for. My wife is suffering from breast cancer and needed the help from them. They could have been more help if they were closer. They always answer their phone and always answer my questions. They took good care of us.

I am her full-time caregiver and I work full-time. They take care of my mom, so it makes my life better. It gives me free time and my mom has found them to be very nice, pleasant, and easy to talk with. They are personable, intelligent, and they listen.

I have to have someone come in because I'm handicapped and I can't take care of things myself. They've made things very easy. I'd be in a world of hurt if I didn't have a caregiver. On every level, it's helpful. There's not a single thing they're not involved in. It took me a year, but I was finally able to get the perfect caregiver. I give them credit for finding her and matching us up. I really appreciate their visitations. They keep track of me. They come out and see how I'm getting along with my caregiver.

They have eliminated a little bit of pressure off of me knowing that someone is going to check on my dad and help him when I can't be there. The communication seems to be really good between them and me. If they notice things, they are quick to let me know.

The caregivers just monitored her and they didn't have much of an impact. I liked how pleasant the caregivers were and that they were attentive to her needs.

They have personalized care, and I don't have to be as involved as I was. I have a job and a family, and it helps me and my mother. They have personalized services.

It definitely reduces the stress. I just need someone to take care of my loved one's bathing because I don't want to do that. I'm glad to have someone else do it. They have good care.

The care gives my loved one more freedom and safety. They are pretty good, but they need more consistency of caregivers.

She's a little resistant to change. They've helped her the most by getting her out of her apartment and eating better than before. They have worked to find a caregiver that works well with my mom.

It doesn't impact my life aside from hearing my loved one's complaints. They've been getting assistance through medicare and that's stopping in a few weeks so the caregivers have to step up, but they should be doing that anyway. Some of the people could be a lot more proactive and do what needs to be done. We made a list of things to do and they haven't done it. They've just been watching TV and just collecting the paycheck. They do minimal work and go to sleep or watch TV. Some caregivers don't have good work ethic anymore.

The services provided security for me to know someone was with him. Bill really liked the caregiver and he was pleased. He looked forward to when they would come.

She required a wheelchair because she couldn't stand so they helped her with the toilet and showering and things like that. They seemed very reliable. She had two caregivers who rotated through and they would accommodate our needs.

I wouldn't have survived without their help when he was at home. BrightStar Care is dependable. I have been able to call on short notice and they are able to find somebody to help me.

It was good to know someone was there that was reliable and that we could trust. The quality of the workers and care of my parents was what we really liked. There was good communication and it felt like they were always in good hands.

He basically said that they very nice. When I spoke with them when I came back, before the caregiver left, she said that my partner behaved very gentlemanly. They were very friendly, competent, and trustworthy.

I would tell a friend that the caregivers were very friendly, helpful, and caring. They helped him the most by staying with him so his family could go home at night or leave him at home during the day.

I have been pleased with their follow up and that they stay in touch with me and keep me informed. They call me to let me know things and they are responsive. They do things for her and take her outside of the house. They just don't help me because I am far away.

They are caring, and it is not just a job to them. Not only do they provide personal interaction, but I can also contact BrightStar, and they always let me know that I can do that. The services have an immense, life-or-death impact on me. My health depends on my infusions from one day to the next, so they impact me with their services.

The fact that they give really good care to my mother and they don't cancel on me is a good thing. The caregivers are pleasant, kind, and competent. If the caregivers weren't doing what they are doing, I would have to spend 100% of my time with my mother, which I can't do time-wise.

The services have helped alleviate some of my stress. Our caregiver has integrated themselves into our family. They actually talk and engage my loved one throughout the day.

BrightStar Care was very easy to work with. I loved the caregivers that they sent out. I mainly had one caregiver so they knew what to do. I couldn't do anything during treatment. The services allowed me to rest and recuperate instead of having to get up and do things.

BrightStar Care was very helpful with my father-in-law by helping him get showers and get in bed. They helped him with memory care and visited with him I live two hours away from my father-in-law, so it was great to have BrightStar Care taking care of him. It was great for my mother-in-law to have help in giving him the care he needed.

I would recommend BrightStar Care because I have never had experience like this. They did what I needed done. BrightStar Care made life easier because it meant I could leave and travel while BrightStar Care prepared meals and helped with showering.

I am a past client of this provider

BrightStar Care needs to improve their level of training and support from the main office. The communication from the office to the care provider needed to be improved. BrightStar Care could have done more training. When my mother got upset, they wouldn't leave and I would have to come home.

I have been very satisfied with the service they have provided. They do what they're supposed to do and make sure that I take my medicine.

I would tell a friend that BrightStar Care is very efficient and friendly people, very reliable, and do what they say they are going to do. BrightStar Care made life easier by making sure mom was ready in the morning and assisted them in their projects. They were mom's hands, eyes, and ears for everything she couldn't do.

BrightStar Care could keep more consistent caregivers. BrightStar Care gives my daughter a break. I feel like I can ask for more help because I am not burdening any family.

I would say that BrightStar Care provides great care and that their services are above reproach. BrightStar Care made my life easier because I am unable to do any weight-bearing work.

BrightStar Care is very professional, has reasonable rates, and has a wide range of services. I would not be able to do the things I normally do without BrightStar Care. They take great care of my mother.

I would recommend BrightStar Care because they have been very conscientious about covering shifts and they are on top of our care. We have never had a panic with them. My loved ones are not doing very well, but the care that BrightStar Care provides is very good.
