General Info
BrightStar provides the full continuum of homecare, childcare, staffing and support services for individuals, families and healthcare facilities. The care we provide empowers our clients to live well at every stage of life and in every setting, and gives their families and loved ones peace of mind. We do more so our patients and their families have the support they need to get the most out of life.  Each BrightStar client receives a personal, in-depth assessment conducted by a registered nurse that takes into account their condition, personality, and environment. We then create an individualized plan of care that meets our clients' unique physical and emotional needs. This plan of care is carried out by one of our highly-qualified caregivers. With our Guaranteed CompatibilityTM system, we will strive to match the right caregiver with your loved one, and we will not stop until all parties involved are satisfied. All our caregivers are fully screened, insured and bonded, licensed and/or state certified, so you can be sure that you are receiving the highest quality service.  Our services are available around the clock - from daily, weekly, part-time or on a 24/7 live-in basis - wherever the patient resides. At BrightStar, our mission is to go above and beyond to make more possible - more support, more joy, more security, more peace of mind. Let us know how we can help.  Each BrightStar office is independently owned and operated. Open 24 hours.

Overall

I just started here a few months ago. I have worked a few years in Home Care in the recent past. I have to say I have never seen such dedication, caring and respectful treatment of field staff as well as Office Staff.



Our owner goes above and beyond when being there for us as well as for her clients.



This company makes me feel very valued, something I have not felt in a long long time.

Overall

I currently work for BrightStar Care in Lake Elmo. Before I worked here I had awful experiences in the Home Care business. When I first started working here at BrightStar I felt Welcomed as if I was already one of them! Through my training process I had fantastic support. I come to work everyday and work with others that share the same passion as I do. Everyone here puts others first, and is dedicated to providing the best care possible for each of our clients. Working with BrightStar has been a totally different experience than what I am used to. I feel comfortable,and as if we are all family. Training is exceptional, the reputation of the company is amazing, our caregivers have so much compassion and dedication that I have never seen before in any home care agency I have worked for. The owner Sini has the biggest heart anyone could have. She puts her clients and her caregivers before herself everyday. Heidi, the Branch Manager has a heart of gold, she is dedicated to making sure we have great communication between our clients and our caregivers. Cynthia, the Director of Nurse loves to teach. She is hands on with each and everyone of our caregivers to make sure that they are fully prepared before going out to the field with our clients. She is dedicated to making sure our caregivers are providing the best care possible for our clients. As an employee for BrightStar Care Lake Elmo, I would recommend them as an employer any day. BrightStar takes such good care in making sure their employees are well taken care of. On a personal level, if I was looking for homecare I would recommend BrightStar to those looking to receive anything from companion care to skilled nursing visits within the home, due to the diligence, and compassion the company, and the employees show.
