The 1st Healthcare Company to be Featured on “Undercover Boss”

Filed under: Home Health Care,Senior Housing Events — seniorlivingguide @ 4:14 pm


The Emmy nominated reality television series UNDERCOVER BOSS will feature CEO and Co-Founder Shelly Sun of BrightStar Care, Sunday, April 17 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

BrightStar Care, one of the fastest growing home healthcare and staffing providers in the country has more than 200 locations across North America, including an office in [INSERT MARKET].   BrightStar Care is one of the few full-service healthcare agencies to offer both medical and non-medical homecare to clients of all ages within their homes, as well as supplemental healthcare staffing to corporate clients such as hospitals and nursing homes.

Shelly Sun, the CEO and Co-Founder of BrightStar Care, said of her experience, “I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to participate on ‘Undercover Boss.’  The experience deepened my appreciation for our caregivers and their relentless efforts to improve their clients’ quality of life and relieve the stress their families face on a day-to-day basis.  I look forward to more people learning about BrightStar Care. Our company hires individuals who are passionate about serving, and care deeply about others’ well-being and happiness. We look for people who can embody that high level of dedication every day.”

Each week, “Undercover Boss” follows a different executive as he or she leaves the comfort of the corner office for an undercover mission to examine the inner workings of their companies. While working alongside their employees, they see the effects that their decisions have on others, where the problems lie within their organizations and get an up-close look at both the good and the bad while discovering the unsung heroes who make their companies run.

Did Mom like you best?

Filed under: Uncategorized — seniorlivingguide @ 9:37 am

“Mom always liked you best.” It was a popular line from the 1960s comedy duo the “Smothers Brothers.” So is there any truth to the statement? And, if so, does it determine who Mom or Dad wants to help care for them in their senior years?

The truth is, birth order and parental preferences do impact caregiving situations in families with multiple siblings. Research conducted by Cornell University gerontologist Karl Pillemer found that mothers ages 65 to 75 in the Boston area were perfectly willing to name favorites among their children.

Most mothers have very distinct preferences, Dr. Pillemer said, including one to whom they feel most emotionally close and one with whom they have the most conflict. Parental favoritism is a fundamental part of the family landscape throughout life.

So who did most mothers pick to care for them when they needed help? She is the one the mother feels closest to and thinks is most similar, Pillmer said. And she is the one who has helped her mom the most in the past.

And that person, according to research conducted for the Home Instead Senior Care® network, was often the youngest. In fact, 64 percent of youngest siblings are primary caregivers compared with 57 percent of oldest siblings and 49 percent of middle siblings. Furthermore, 43 percent of youngest children say they have the closest relationship with their parents, while 70 percent of oldest children describe themselves as the responsible ones and 40 percent of middle children as the peacemakers of the family.

If you are facing caregiving challenges in your family, Home Instead Senior Care’s 50-50 RuleSM program can help. The program for siblings includes a guide of family situations which offers practical advice on ways to address those situations and additional resources SolvingFamilyConflict.com.

Please contact your local Home Instead Senior Care office for more information or to schedule a no-cost in-home consultation to learn more about how we can help you and your parents.
