BrightStar provides a full continuum of care

skilled care provider
BrightStar sets itself apart by offering the full continuum of home care services: companion care, which involves visiting with clients and helping with common household activities like meal preparation, laundry, and housecleaning; personal care, which includes dressing, grooming, and help with mobility issues; and skilled care, which involves nursing care and therapies. Most competitors offer only the first two services. We offer the full continuum of care because it’s better for clients, and it’s better for franchisees. Clients enjoy relationships with a consistent group of caregivers who help them stay healthier and in their own home for longer. Franchisees benefit by continuing to serve clients rather than being forced to end the relationship.

BrightStar Care earns the highest level of accreditation

joint commission jachoBrightStar Care provides clients skilled as well as non-skilled in-home care designed to improve their health and quality of life, and ease the caregiving burden on their loved ones. Our franchisees earn accreditation from The Joint Commission, a nationally recognized healthcare standards organization that accredits renowned facilities like the Mayo Clinic. The Joint Commission has named BrightStar Care an “Enterprise Champion for Quality” for six consecutive years thanks to the systems and training we have in place to help senior care franchisees and the staff deliver the highest standard of care.

We are the only home care agency to achieve this distinction. This helps franchisees:

    • Recruit new staff
    • Attract National Accounts
    • Earn Local Referrals from Medical Professionals
    • Win families’ trust
