Almost all seniors would like to stay in their own homes for as long as possible. Unfortunately, injuries, surgeries, advancing illness, or even the loss of function that comes as an ordinary part of aging can all threaten a senior’s independence and make staying at home untenable. That’s why many seniors and their families turn to home care services. A visit from a caretaker lasting only a few hours a day can provide an enormous boost to a senior’s health, dignity, and self-sufficiency. BrightStar Care is one of the larger companies offering home care in the US, and while they do offer some of the basics of home care, they’ve also positioned themselves as a resource for those needing more intensive help.
