She wouldn't have survived without them. I felt like they really communicated well and sent good, quality staff.

I couldn't manage without them. They don't wear me out. He has his bed changed every morning. The one that have come out to our house have been very caring.

I needed confidence in the caregivers from a distance and I felt comfortable that my mother was being taken care of. They have a sense of professionalism that didn't exist in other agencies I contacted.

I have six kids at home so it's a little hard to have another individual in the house ushering him through all of the chaos. I think it's personal anxiety of making sure the kids stay out of the way. They could also come up with more of a variety of activities to do with him. I like that every single staff member I've talked to has been overwhelmingly friendly and helpful.

I did the care all by myself until BrightStar Care came because of the VA. My husband is capable of doing some things, and I take him to physical therapy twice a week, and I take him to a pool to exercise. The caregiver is willing to go and get in the water with me and keep an eye on him so he does not fall. They work with me until they get a person that fits into my environment and that is important for me. They do look for a better match for me if there is a bad match.

It's going pretty good. I think that soon, we will have to go get more hours in the day. It has freed me up and let me relax. They let me go to the store and do personal things. So far, I like the two people that we have had. They have been great.

When I get the help, it is very important. They have been very reliable. Even though I don't get care very frequently, they have been able to send somebody to help me when I need it.

Everything was done on time, and having someone there with my loved one was important. I liked the care that my loved one got and the friendships my loved one had with the caregivers.

He looks forward to her coming and is excited to see her. The caregivers are great, but the office staff is incompetent and rude.

They have a nurse that periodically comes to check on things. Their communication with the clients is great. They are good with seeking solutions if I have issues. They keep me in the loop.

My mother died last year and now my step dad is in assisted living in Eugene. One of the other residents there told him about Bright Star and he decided to get some assistance with settling him in to his new place, as I live in Seattle and am unable to just stop by and help him as needed. Stephanie was the one to come out and help him. She assessed the situation and took charge in a way that didn’t undermine my stepdad’s wishes. She treats him with respect and dignity and also is able to persuade him to do difficult things that he needs to do, and how to do it in a way that works. She also knows when not to pick a battle! Now Stephanie comes in on a regular basis to assist my step dad. We could contract with the assisted living facility to do these extra things (and it is a good place), but Stephanie gives him the detailed attention that makes his quality of life better in unmeasurable ways. She and my step dad have a great relationship. Meanwhile, I have peace of mind that my step dad is well cared for, which is so important with me being 275 miles away. Thank you to Bright Star and Stephanie for being there for my step dad. Stephanie is a gem!

They could have made my life easier by having more employees and accommodating us with what we needed. They could improve by listening and responding quicker. I should not have to call 7 times to get something fixed.

We're leaving this review to post how pleased we are with Stephanie. She is our back up caregiver and she always brings a big smile to our faces. She is very thorough and knowledgeable and helps us find additional care that we are seeking. Stephanie has a gentle and quiet demeanor; very kind and is so successful in getting my husband to participate in the word games. He's very hesitant to go for a walk or participate in the word games unless Stephanie is here. This is representative of the great rapport that she has. I'm sure that she is a popular caregiver to be requested due to her gentle, caring and knowledgeable personality. I don't know what the company pays their caregivers, but I can say for certain that they earn every penny plus! I would hope that there are bonuses or perks for the caregivers that excel like Stephanie. I was told that the company tries to match their caregivers to their clients and I would say that they hit a home run here! I would recommend the company. My only concern would be that if the caregivers are not compensated enough, the really good ones might leave ... and we would be so sad if that happened. My husband normally does not like strangers in the home but both Angie and Stephanie have done an excellent job in making him so comfortable that they are like members of the family.

She really likes the caregiver that comes out here. She really enjoys her company. They have been good. They are on top of things. The caregiver is really nice.

They went above and beyond. They did more than what I asked while doing what I did ask. Stephanie was rad. It was excellent. We didn't have any problems at all. I dealt with two representatives. Not only were they professional, but they felt like family. I have PTSD, and I don't like people, so that was important.

They were a lot of help, but having a caregiver would have had a greater impact on my daily life. They did a good job of taking care of me.

He is a good impact on both his and my life. I have to have him. They have an awful turnover of caregivers. They need more consistency with caregivers.

They take good care of me when they are here, if they are here long enough. I like my caregiver. Her and my mind get together a lot. One morning, she was making jello and I hoped she made the lime, and she did. I like her work.

They have super inconsistent caregivers. Some are great, some are not. I would like them to improve the billing, it is horrible. They cannot provided balances, and they send weekly invoices, which do not show what has already been paid and what is still pending.

I am the husband of the client. I am almost always present when the care giver is here. Agency has been good at making sure the hours are covered. Brightstar is our current provider and has been our service agency or about one year. The staff they send have been very competent. Staff is very polite and accommodating. They are adaptable to whatever changes in coverage I nee. Caregiver Takes Nancy shopping. Puts out pills for the month. Cleans the house, floor, bathroom, etc. Helps keep Nancy focused and is emotionally very supportive. She always arrives on time and sometimes stays a few minutes late to finish up a task. She is very friendly. Knowledgeable. Easy to work with and quite open to do whatever she is asked The office has been very good at making sure the hours are covered. They are always polite and show concern over Nancy's welfare.

There is an excellent screening process. Every caregiver that has been to our home is kind and knowledgeable. Our regular caregiver, Emily, is always attentive to my mother's needs without hovering or barking orders. I would give one more star to this company if they had a 24-hour on call system. If something comes up in the morning before the office opens, they don't get the message until they get in.

An individual like me, I get 7 days a week 3 hours a day. Sometimes they stay a little bit longer and work with me to pay my bills. BrightStar has always worked with me. BrightStar has always heard my needs and requests. They always make sure that they could do anything they could possibly do. I would give them a higher rating if I could.

I don't have to be there during the day, so that's a big help. They've been caring and the people who work for them are great. They're very good with my loved one and spend time with her.

The lady stayed on the phone for about an hour and wouldn't get work done. There were things that I didn't know they could do, but they wouldn't do them.

It is outstanding and it helps me along. It makes it a lot easier to get around. Chemotherapy makes me really weak. When there is something to get done, they get it done. They are professional.

She keeps a close eye on my husband to make sure he is okay and make sure he takes his medications when he's supposed to. She helps him in the bathroom and even helps me clean. The caregiver is a very nice person to work with.

He would be worse off without it. The people that they send to take care of my dad are skilled, knowledgeable, and friendly.

When they first started, I said I would like for her to vacuum, dust, mop, wipe the bathroom down, and put dishes in the dishwasher, and she is not doing much of anything now. My dad has long-term care insurance and we have been working to get that going, but I would be calling this company and they would say they were sending a fax to the agency, and I would ask the agency to call me back when they got it, but they never called me back. They finally called and said I need to start paying on this. We have been communicating it repeatedly that they needed to take care of this.

She was always there when she was supposed to be. She never called in sick, she was attentive, nice, and we laughed a lot. The company and caregivers are very loving and caring. I would use them again.

They've added more stress to my life because I have caregivers that don't show up for my shifts and they don't call me so I'm left high and dry. That's happened several times this week, even. They could improve their communication. They could let me know what's going on with the caregivers.

They aren't on time and it really causes problems sometimes. The scheduling could improve and the caregivers aren't on time.

They come in once a week and they help her with a shower and a little bit of light housework. We are very happy with the lady that comes in. They have been wonderful. They are very prompt, they listen, and are very reasonable. They are very professional.

It's been a great help to my folks. It's also taken stress off of me. They have been very responsive on issues that have come up. They have cared about my parents, and they've been flexible in the staffing and scheduling.

They are firm about carrying out directives that the physicians give out, but they are not pushy. I think just ongoing training, not so much about medical, but more about social skills would be good. They worked very hard to find someone that's compatible with the patient. I would like to see better office support with coordinating the people to come and changes in the schedule.

She has taken a lot of the pressure off because I am a senior and there's a lot of the work that I have to do. And it is very heavy work that needs to be done. I really appreciated having somebody here to take that pressure off. I think that they are a company that I can trust, the people come in very professionally, and they do good job.

I would tell a friend that the caregiver we had was excellent. She did a good job. He had Parkinson's and it was hard for him to get around. He couldn't walk or talk. She was great.

Their caregivers are very kind and reliable. That's an important thing. It alleviates the worry about the care that my mom is getting because they will alert me of any concerns. Mostly they provide such a sense of comfort and companionship to my mom.

Everything's been going fairly smooth. The caregiver is doing a really good job. She's been doing good work. We went through a couple companies that didn't work out and we ended on this decision. He's bonded with the caregiver really well. They just basically take care of his everyday needs. She takes over and does everything I used to do.

My caregiver is very attentive. She watches and listens and she did that with my husband as well. Her attention is all about her client and I think that is so cool. She is more of a companion for me and she is so awesome. If nothing else, she is there for moral support.

They could manage their employees better. There is poor communication among the administrative staff. Our caregiver is very responsible, though. I don't have to worry when she is here.

BrightStar Care needs to communicate with me more about scheduling and people not showing up for their shifts and things like that. BrightStar Care makes my loved one's life easier because my mother cannot bathe him. They make his bed, cook breakfast, and put him to bed.

I would recommend BrightStar Care to others because I can count on them to send caregivers when I needed them. BrightStar Care has made life easier for me because they take three hours of caregiving from me so I do not need to do it.
