About BrightStar Care®
A Skilled Home Health Care Franchise
At BrightStar Care, we know how overwhelming the responsibility of caring for a family member can be. BrightStar Care founder and CEO, Shelly Sun’s first experience with home health care businesses came when “Grandma Pat,” needed help. She lived in Illinois while Grandma Pat was in Florida. Finding good health care professionals was a struggle and, as Grandma Pat’s needs changed, the cobbled-together solutions kept falling apart. No company offered a full continuum of care for people with changing needs, and the quality of care was radically inconsistent.
BrightStar Care was founded as a family business in 2002 in order to provide the full continuum of home health care for families and individuals in need. Shelly was dedicated to creating a home health franchise that families could rely on for quality health care, whether their loved one needed companion care to provide help around their home, personal care to help them manage mobility challenges, or skilled care to help manage medical conditions.
Today, BrightStar Care services include adult care, elder care, childcare, and medical staffing services for individuals, families, and health care facilities.
BrightStar Franchising offers the opportunity to own a rewarding business and help families in your community. Contact us today to learn more.
How Far We’ve Come
With franchises servicing over 330 locations nationwide, BrightStar Care helps keep parents and grandparents comfortable. We can provide every service that is available at a nursing facility, but in the comfort and familiarity of home. From companionship, toileting, and hygiene assistance to in-home blood draws and complex infusions, our services are available around the clock to meet our patients’ every need.
Multiple Revenue Streams
In addition to delivering care to patients one-on-one in their home, we also provide care in other settings. Health care businesses in the community frequently reach out to BrightStar Care for help with staffing. We provide personnel to hospitals, nursing homes, doctors’ offices, labs, and anywhere health care staff is needed. These relationships not only bring in extra revenue for franchisees — they also provide extra income opportunities for caregivers, which helps make BrightStar Care their employer of choice.
BrightStar Care franchisees also benefit from patients referred by our network of National Account partners. Many health care providers are looking for skilled providers to serve patients in their homes, and BrightStar Care is an ideal partner thanks to our nationwide recognition and our franchisees’ Joint Commission Accreditation. National Account services range from insurance assessments and IV infusion therapy to home health (in addition to delivering flu clinic services to corporate, commercial, and retail clients).
A Higher Standard of Home Health Care
BrightStar Care’s business model is designed to help professionals without prior health care experience deliver A Higher Standard of Care. The care we provide empowers our patients to live well at every stage of life and in every setting. It gives them, their families, and their loved ones the support they need to get the most out of life. Our mission is to go above and beyond to truly deliver A Higher Standard of Care and nothing less.
BrightStar Care franchisees earn Joint Commission Accreditation, which ensures that the highest level of health care standards is met.
