The current caregiver makes me feel very comfortable, she helps me all morning. Everything has been positive so far, they have been taking care of problems we have had.

They can be more involved and offer to do thing. Some caregivers aren't very experienced.

They help the most in getting Edith in the car instead of using the lift system. They get her to her appointments on time and bring her home right away. I like that the agency is responsive. They have always been on time.

The way she helps me get dressed is very nice. I can't bend over to do that. I am very pleased so far. The girl is very cooperative and she always does more than I ask her to do.

They could hire better people. They need to improve on everything. Their hiring practices are terrible and the attitude of the office staff is terrible.

They cleaned out the bathrooms and vacuumed the house. They also cleaned the kitchen. I liked that they got the job done and left.

They should offer for someone to come out and help me on a daily basis. They just dismiss me. They do not try to get me anyone not even for half a day. When my caregiver can't come they never offer anyone else to come out. They are rude when I talk to them. They are not nice to my caregiver.

They need to have a training session where they send all of the caregivers who they're sending to my house so I can train them for four hours. They reimburse everything the caregivers break.

They need to keep their caregivers. They could show their staff some more respect. One of my caregivers got a new job because they don't pay them enough.

I cannot manage alone without them. They could provide more stable care, for instance sending the same person every weekend rather than someone different everyday.

She knows what she is doing when she gives me the shower. They have been very good, they give me a shower and help me get dressed.

The work gets done, she is pleasant, and conscientious. I can't ask for more than that. The average caregiver is not worth a darn, but the caregiver I have now is fantastic because she does what she is supposed to do the best way possible.

I can't walk, and it is hard to do the house work with my walker, so she does it for me. BrightStar Care does very good work and a good job.

She does so much for me. She runs errands and takes me to doctor appointments and visits. I like the aide that I got 3 years ago. She is right on the spot all the time.

My caregiver does so much for me and takes care of my house because I can't do too much of anything. I have a fantastic caregiver that I've had for two years.

They need to send me a driver when I need to go to a doctor's appointment, and I need a caregiver who does not smoke. I need a person to drive me around to my appointments, and they have not been able to always supply me a driver when I need it. I am very allergic to secondhand smoke, and they continue to send me caregivers who smoke.

They are really good about letting me know if they can't come or if a different aide is coming out. As far as the aides themselves go, there is a list of tasks for them to do. I'd like them to get through the tasks. I would tell a friend that they are reliable, responsive, and answer my questions and help me with problems. They are reasonably priced. The aides are friendly and reliable.

They help the most by being there when I need them and doing what I need them to do. I like that they are always on time and will accommodate me with whatever I request.

If I could, I would give them a 1/2 star. My mom was with Bright Star for about 2 months. She did have some care givers that were real nice and helped her with her exercises, did what she asked and were friendly and helpful. They also sent new girls all of the time so she had no idea what stranger was coming to her house day after day. However, most of the help she had were young girls that were still going to school (nothing wrong with that) but had absolutely no experience with home care. Didn't know how to clean, cook, make a bed or do laundry. They didn't drive, so they had to take a bus and were always late or simply didn't show up. Because they didn't drive they could not get her groceries or take her for any appointments, which they said they would do for her. They were young and ALWAYS had their phone in their hands. They sat, fell asleep, played on their phones, did not finish their duties. Would wash dishes but wouldn't dry them and put them away. They would ask mom for food or drink. Many times mom shared her dinner (frozen dinners that my sister and I had prepared) with them because they were hungry. I would NOT recommend this company for home care. So many times I would call my mom and she would be crying because she was so upset with her help or should I say non-help. My opinion is if they paid more they could get professional help that know how to do their job, not a bunch of kids who really don't care or have any idea what they are doing. The 1/2 star is for the good ones. Thankfully she had a couple of them.

I have been with them since last December, and I have had 7 different girls. That's a lot of girls. Some of them don't have transportation. I like their friendliness.

I would like them to learn to cook and be on time. The caregivers need to do what I ask, but most of them do. I would like them to do a better job with laundry.

They can have people who are committed to doing what I need to have done. There were people that did not know how to help me with a shower. They can have people who know what they are supposed to be doing.

It helps me a lot now. The right person came. I haven't had good luck with them because I had a lot of different caregivers every day. They change a lot and they aren't capable of doing the job, and they don't seem to have the knowledge to take care of seniors. It's been over a month when I finally got a good one, but I've had to go through so many bad ones first.

It takes a strain off me. They do things that I do not have to do. They keep things clean, and they keep the house looking good in the short period of time that they are here. They do the laundry and the dishes. I like that they show up, their people are courteous, and they do what they are supposed to do.

They have made things easier by helping to take care of my mother because I have health problems myself. I like that they have good communication and always try to get my mom a decent caregiver.

The caregiver helps me by doing things that require a lot of getting up and down, which I can't do. The caregiver that I have does a good job and is very professional.

The provider could have a greater impact on daily life by making sure the caregivers are doing their jobs and by checking in on them occasionally. The provider could do better at watching over the employees that they send out. I've noticed that the employees, at least in my case, seem to sit around and let me do a lot of the work.

We needed consistent care. There was too much overturn with the people.

They had a rough start at the beginning. The caregivers didn't show up or would show up late. They need to have more training for their people and need to know the basic life skills. They need to work on their communication.

I am not using the company at this time because I am going through Chemo. I didn't want any one around me because I get so tired from my Chemo. I didn't want to be too agitated around my caregivers. I have temporarily put my services on hold. When my caregivers are here, they clean my dishes, the bathroom, and my floors. They are willing to take my trash out. Most of my caregivers from this company have been pretty good, with the exception of one caregiver.

The caregiver is great, but the agency doesn't have caregivers with cars on the weekends. They could have better help with caregivers who have cars on the weekends.

I have no trouble getting to doctor's appointments, I send my girl to the grocery store. My girl is very good. They don't waste my time, they actually come and do what they are supposed to do. I get the attention that I need.

They have been very good about doing things, but they have a horrible turnover with caregivers. I think that sometimes they need better communication in the office. They have so many young caregivers, and when someone is old there isn't a lot to have in common.

They just didn't do their job; we read the log chart and it said they would feed him, but they didn't know how to change him or transfer him and he was dropped a few times. They could've sent more appropriate people and not drop him. They need more training.

They are prompt, they fill me in on everything is going on, and they are courteous. They have been helpful and have helped both me and my son. They take care of my son during the day and explain what is going on.

The caregiver from BrightStar Care is polite and always here. When I went into the hospital, I didn't think I would get my same caregiver back, but I did.

I think they could be doing better if they had people available more often when caregivers call off and cannot come in. They need to have replacements because often it does not happen. This Friday I had someone call off at 7, and they did not find someone to come until after 10. I needed someone to help me get out of bed so that day was hard. One of my caregivers is good, but the other ones are not good.

When we first started care, they sent caregivers to my loved one's home that were not healthy. That put my loved one at risk. This current caregiver doesn't go above and beyond to clean up messes. I also think the training process was not good for them because I would think it would tell them what basic things to do like that. I'm working with them. I didn't want to get rid of them right away because I want to give them a chance. It's nice to know that their diapers are being changed. The two hours has taken away my stress at work of worrying about them because I know that someone is sitting with them.

Whenever you need BrightStar Care, they're a phone call away. They're good to work for. The service has helped by having someone around to help my loved one with his daily life. The caregiver is there to help him with whatever he needs.

I am a past client of this provider

I would recommend BrightStar Care because they have the best caregivers in town. However, they need to communicate with each-other and their caregivers better. BrightStar Care can have a greater impact on my life if their caregivers would show up. I am supposed to get out of my chair at 7 but I would be stuck in it until 10 am. My original great caregivers either had car problems or had different jobs and so their replacements just didn't cut it.

I didn't have any problems with BrightStar Care. I had been with them for a long time, and I would recommend them if I lived in Pennsylvania. I couldn't go up and down the stairs in the basement, and my caregivers took me shopping and to errands.

BrightStar Care is not fair with their caregivers. They give the caregivers lower pay when I get more hours and I think that is not fair. BrightStar Care made my life easier because I have a-fib. and it takes me time to do things. The caregivers helped me get things done around the house.

August 08, 2017

By Betty G_3

I am a current client of this provider

BrightStar Care's owners are top-notch, and the people they bring in try their very best to take care of the clients. There is nothing BrightStar Care can do to make life easier. It is something we would have to work out with someone else to get more hours.

July 11, 2017

By Joyce N_2

I am a current client of this provider

I would tell someone that BrightStar Care is doing well for the client, they are careful, they give her comfort, and they do what she wants them to do. The client's life is very difficult because of the stroke that she has had, and there is not much that could be done better than if we had someone available on a moments notice at all times.

Everybody that we had to deal with at Brightstar was fantastic. The girl who came actually lived with my grandmother. She was right on top of everything. If there was a problem, she made a phone call right away. I have nothing but good to say about them. They were just wonderful. It wasn't like a job for her, she actually cared.
