BrightStar Care has been one of the fastest-growing and highest-rated home health care and care home franchises in the United States over the last 20 years.
BrightStar Care Franchise Opportunity
A Higher Quality of Home Care
BrightStar Care is a home healthcare franchise dedicated to providing both medical and non-medical assistance for families and individuals in need. With over 15 years of incomparable success, we are providing the full continuum of care in an industry that continues to grow due to the increasing senior population.
As a BrightStar Care franchisee, you will have access to multiple revenue streams, including companion care, personal care, skilled care, medical staffing, and national accounts. Our ability to offer our clients virtually all the services they need allows you to keep them for a longer period of time, maximizing revenue potential.
Why Choose a BrightStar Franchise?
Multiple Revenue Streams – The BrightStar Care business model also allows for multiple revenue streams. This kind of flexibility allows your business to grow and diversify. For instance, BrightStar Care franchisee, Jim Guzdziol, points out that, in addition to providing home health care services to patients, his business also provides staffing services to other health care providers.
“Where that comes into play is building relationships in the area [of] healthcare facilities, the assisted living facilities, the independent living, and skilled nursing facilities,” he says. “Building relationships with them to do staffing also leads to referrals for our home care side and vice versa. It’s another way to grow the business.”
National Accounts – Our Joint Commission Accreditation, coupled with the nationwide footprint of our franchise system, makes BrightStar Care an ideal partner for large healthcare companies that are looking for home health care providers to serve their patients. BrightStar Care has secured relationships with more than 100 companies, which provides a strong source of referrals for franchisees from the very first day they open their BrightStar Care location. BrightStar continues to add National Account partners who are looking for trusted home health care providers to serve patients.
We Are an Elite Provider
BrightStar Care franchises maintain accreditation with The Joint Commission, which also accredits the Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, and other world-renowned healthcare organizations. This accreditation is not mandatory for home care or home health care agencies; however, BrightStar Care franchisees submit to the Joint Commission’s standards and inspections in order to maintain the highest quality of care. Our BrightStar Care operations align with best practices recognized by The Joint Commission, so franchisees who follow our systems and training will be meeting elite standards of care. BrightStar Care® – A Higher Standard™.
Our Case Managers Are Medical Professionals
Unlike our competitors, BrightStar Care uses a Registered Nurse to manage every case, even though it isn’t required by state licensing, as highlighted in all marketing materials. Our BrightStar Care Senior Vice President of Marketing, Teresa Celmer, explains why:
“Every single BrightStar Care location has an RN Director of Nursing overseeing every case. And that opens up our ability to provide skilled services. When you look at all the ads, ours is the only one with a nurse in it, and it’s no accident.”
Another differentiator is that all BrightStar Care caregivers are carefully screened and licensed, thus ensuring that only the most highly qualified individuals join the BrightStar Care® team.

Why Now is a Great Time to Own a BrightStar Care® Franchise
Medical Staffing at BrightStar Care
“When I was in other roles with BrightStar Care I always leaned on the support team, and they offer a lot of training and support for owners. We have sales support, operations support and nursing support. They have plans all laid out to help you succeed. I think that BrightStar Care is pretty unique in how much support they give us. It has been crucial to my business.”
“We are at a point where things can really increase rapidly in terms of revenue and growth. We’re at a point where if we just work a little smarter and put some more effort in certain areas, we can really begin to double or triple our business in a year or two. We’re just getting started.”
“I looked at several home healthcare franchises and, honestly, it wasn’t even a close call as far as the standards that BrightStar Care has. The depth and breadth of the business line means we have five or six things you can do versus the very limited services the competitors have. We have everything from traditional home care to skilled services to temporary staffing. Once I understood all that BrightStar Care has to offer, including Joint Commission accreditation, I was sold. Coming out of the medical field, Joint Commission accreditation was a big deal to me. It has become a huge marketing tool for us.”
“This is the first time I have ever owned my own business, so there have been many different things that I had to navigate. BrightStar Care leadership helped guide me along that path and provided me a good template of what to expect so nothing surprised me too much along the way.”
“Our nurses and staff are really compassionate. That’s what it really comes down to. We build a team of people who are compassionate and love what they do. Whether it’s our field employees or our nurse case-managers who are managing those people, that’s where you really see the difference you’re making in people’s lives.”
“I really enjoy that you always go home in this business feeling like you made a difference. Sometimes in other businesses you get that feeling, but most of the time you just go through and do your job. Here, I go home every day feeling like I’ve helped people and made a profound difference, with both clients and employees.”
