Founded in 2002 by a couple who needed help caring for a loved one, tadalafil and didn’t know where to turn give her the quality of care, and the quality of life she deserved, BrightStar began as a family business that was created to provide care that was more – more dependable, more supportive, and more complete. Today BrightStar operates from over 200 locations nationwide, to provide the full continuum of homecare (including adult and elder care), childcare (including newborn care, babysitter and nanny services), and medical staffing services for individuals, families and healthcare facilities. By providing services from companionship, toileting and hygiene assistance, to in-home blood draws, all of which are available around the clock to meet our client’s every need, BrightStar is able to keep parents and grandparents in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes, as well as to assist parents with their childcare needs.
Locally, the Richmond BrightStar office is owned and operated by Mark and Amy Grasser, both of whom came to BrightStar after many years in the corporate world. Amy managed the Human Resource department for a regional bank, where she was responsible for finding the right candidates that would be able and willing to provide the top notch service upon which the bank was founded. In addition to working in the accounting field, Mark, who is a CPA, directed the development of new communities. Among his chief responsibilities was to ensure that customer needs were met and all customers were satisfied.
Managing the company on a daily basis, local owners Mark and Amy, both of whom have grandmothers in their 90’s, have each experienced first-hand the challenges families go through in identifying the best plan for their own individual family to provide care to aging parents and grandparents. They have experienced the difficult situations that are encountered when family members have to deal with such overwhelming challenges; challenges which are only exacerbated when family members are not living close to loved ones.
As with the couple who founded BrightStar almost a decade ago, Mark and Amy knew there had to be a better way. When they discovered BrightStar it became apparent that this was the solution they were in search of. In addition, with BrightStar not only are they able to provide the high level of service to which they have both become accustomed to providing, but also they are at the same time able to make such a positive difference in the lives of so many families.
The entire Richmond team is dedicated to giving families the piece of mind that comes with knowingthat their loved ones are receiving the highest level of care and services. We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and will do whatever is necessary to ensure that your loved ones are being treated as we would want our family members to be treated.
