    It's great for the client, but it's even greater for me because it gives me a little freedom being that I am his primary caregiver. I have referred them. I like everything about the agency. The girls are first-class and they're very caring. They have become my daughters. They have taken wonderful care of the client. They're very giving and loving.

    They have made the experience positive because they take stress off my husband and let me do things I love to do, like cooking, baking, and my grocery shopping. I would recommend them because the majority of the caregivers I've had have been very good and very helpful.

    Diana is very willing to make meals while she's there, but if she could cook meals other than a sandwich for dinner, mom would appreciate that. Right now, Diana, is very nice and mom likes her a lot. Mom wishes that Diana would let mom speak for herself when they go out.

    He can trust that he's getting the proper medications set up for him and they are a second set of eyes for the family who are not available to see the situation. I like the extensiveness of the care.

    It has been a high impact on my life because I'm handicapped. They make sure things are cleaned and help me get around. They can be more consistent in getting things done.

    They could charge less for services or be a bit more transparent about how much their workers get. You want to know that the people caring for you are being compensated fairly. They are good at followup, flexibility, and communication is great.

    It was helpful. It would help if the caregiver knew how to take care of kids. This is the first time using them and it's been crazy with the COVID-19 and we requested for child care backup. We had two people come out from BrightStar Care and the first person didn't really know how to interact with kids. It was more like passive care.

    Some of the caregivers from BrightStar Care were excellent, but my mother had so many other problems with the agency. She required someone to be there at 6:00 AM to get her out of bed because she cannot get out by herself. Over the first week of using the services, the caregiver came over an hour past the scheduled time; another time, they showed up three hours late. After that, my mother received a different caregiver who was able to work the needed time. Things were okay with that caregiver, but before then everything was pretty bad. BrightStar Care doesn't have 24-hour answering services, so my mother would have to leave a message early in the morning and no one would call back right away to send her a caregiver. The quality of the work was good, but the caregivers just didn't show up. There were good things about the services provided by BrightStar Care that helped to make my mother's life easier. They did the housecleaning, took care of her personal hygiene, and did meal prep for her.
