    Having a caregiver makes a difference, but the type of caregivers that come makes a difference. I have to teach my caregiver what to do at times, and that can be frustrating. I would like to see the agency improve on providing more consistent caregivers. The caregivers change too frequently.

    I have someone that is going into my mom's home every day of the week so we can monitor how she is functioning. It's a big help so we can make sure we can see if anything changes with her. I would recommend them because I think that they are very thorough with their patient intake, and they have a pretty good handle on the patient's personality by the time they are done, so they can match the caregiver appropriately. I used to have a lot of good communication with them, but it has kind of dropped off some.

    The girls have been very nice to my husband and have conversations with him. They've been lovely. It's nice knowing he will be cared for while I'm gone. I think the hardest thing is that one girl wrote down everything that's to be expected, and the new caregivers don't read what's on the list before they come making me have to go over it all with them before I leave.

    The caregiver wasn't a very pleasant person to be around. We should have gotten someone in there to watch her sooner so she could get used to someone helping her. She needed to get used to having someone be around her. When we had one group come in, my loved one went to get out of the shower and fell. She fractured her shoulder. After she got out of the rehab center, she fell out of the bed and hit her head.

This has been wonderful. The office personal is not great. I had to cancel a date, the office did not inform my care giver who came to the house. Behold, a week later -- I am billed for the caregiver for an hour.

    Some caregivers are good and some are not. It was just that one caregiver that didn't do so well. She criticized me because I wasn't given her food and water, and my mom was unconscious.That's one of the things with death is they're not hungry, and they're not thirsty, but she made me feel bad and like I was doing something wrong. I was just angry with her the whole time she was there. I would like to see that the caregivers that you get for end of life be suited for that. I had a really bad experience with one of the caregivers because she didn't know anything about end of life care.

    They do a lot of things for her that she can't do. The people they have sent out have been really helpful and professional and well-qualified.

    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.

    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 would be good to show the previous information from previous caretakers. When I have called and needed someone, they have been there. They are very reliable.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.
