Overview

BrightStar Care - Franchise Information

With BrightStar Care you’ll separate yourself from all others in this competitive space by providing A Higher Standard of care with access to revenue opportunities uniquely available to the BrightStar Care network.  The Joint Commission, a nationally recognized healthcare standards organization that accredits renowned facilities like the Mayo Clinic, has named BrightStar Care an “Enterprise Champion for Quality” for the eighth consecutive year.  As the only home care company to receive such a distinction, many opportunities are available to our franchisees.  In addition to providing a full continuum of award winning skilled and non-skilled in-home health care we’ve also developed National Account relationships to drive referrals to your business in areas such as:

  • Commercial Insurance
  • Workers Compensation
  • COVID Testing including airlines, airports, manufacturing plants, offices and more
  • Clinical Trials – We’re providing nurses to one of the nation’s largest vaccine trials 
  • Access to National Accounts and medical staffing including Military and VA

Nurses and caregivers are the difference maker in our business.  BrightStar Care has more "Best of Home Care" awards than any other brand, further instilling our commitment to a high-quality, full continuum of care across our entire franchise system.  With a retention rate three times the national average, we and our franchisees strive to be the employer of choice with creative ways to retain the best and the brightest members of our team.  
As we navigate through the pandemic and a looming recession, BrightStar Care franchisees are positioned for growth.  The number of seniors needing our care gets larger every day.  We’re already serving nearly 12,000 families every week, employing 20,000 caregivers and 3,500 nurses across our nearly 340 locations – and these number continue to grow.
If you’re looking for a business where you can provide a service that truly makes a difference in your community, you’ve found it with BrightStar Care.
