BrightStar Care Meets Growing Need For Home Care In East Richmond Area And Greater Hanover County
In-Home Care Franchise Will Provide A Higher Standard of Care to Local Community
October 10, 2018 // Franchising.com // EAST RICHMOND, VA - BrightStar Care, one of the nation's leading private duty home care and medical staffing franchise, has announced the opening of its newest location in East Richmond. The new office will serve families across the greater Richmond area, including Hanover and Henrico Counties.
BrightStar Care of East Richmond offers a higher standard of in-home care, with a full-continuum of services comprised of companionship, personal care, dementia care, transportation, medication assistance, skilled nursing and more to improve clients’ health and quality of life. Furthermore, the professional care team is led by Director of Nursing, Ann Harrison, who oversees the care of every client, working with them and their family to create a unique, personalized plan of care for their needs,
The new location is owned by husband and wife duo, John and Margaret Howell and close friend Kenneth Lynch, who were inspired to open a home care business that truly raised the bar in terms of providing dependable care after having to care for their loved ones from afar. During that time, they found gaps in quality of care, and knew they wanted to enter the senior care space and provide the greater Richmond area with the best care possible. They were attracted to BrightStar Care not only for their commitment to providing top-notch care and ensuring the family is kept up to date on their loved one's progress, but also the brand's recognition by The Joint Commission.
“While most of our business experience is in project management, we saw the difference in quality of care with our own aging parents and knew we had to become an advocate and resource for the aging population and their loved ones in our local community,” said BrightStar Care franchisee John Howell. “BrightStar Care is the best in the industry, and we look forward to providing our signature higher standard of care to the greater Richmond area.”
“John, Margaret and Kenneth's level of experience in project management brings a unique perspective to the BrightStar Care family,” said Shelly Sun, CEO and founder of BrightStar Care. “They will be a valuable asset to the BrightStar Care brand, and we are confident that the greater Richmond area will be taken care of by them and their team of talented caregivers.”
