For Alzheimer’s Awareness Month
As part of National
Month, BrightStar Care is
sharing stories, with
showcase real, personal
stories of connections
between clients, family
care partners, and
BrightStar Care caregivers.
We had the honor of speaking with several families and caregivers
from around the country to learn more about how their BrightStar
Care caregivers have made a difference in their lives and the lives
of their loved ones.
Families communicated examples of person-centered

fond memories of teaching kindergartners, and using a stuffed toy

These types of connections are possible because of the caregivers’
warm and compassionate personalities as well as the BrightStar
Care approach to enrich the lives of their clients with person-
centered care that preserves dignity, provides assistance and
promotes activity. Additionally, Registered Nurse oversight of
every client’s plan of care makes BrightStar Care well poised
to respond to behavioral expressions which can be challenging for

memories of the lake house and his time in the Navy.
