Santa Barbara Caregiver Receives National Honor For Providing High-Quality Care

BrightStar Care® Names Rafael Benavides the 2020 National Caregiver of the Year

October 20, 2020 // // GURNEE, IL - Committed to providing the best care for his clients, Rafael Benavides exemplifies what it means to provide high-quality care. Rafael Benavides, a caregiver with BrightStar Care Santa Barbara, one of the nation's leading private duty home care and medical staffing franchises that provide one-of-a-kind care, has shown deep compassion for every one of his clients by going above and beyond when catering to their everyday needs.

Each year BrightStar Care® recognizes its caregivers for going above and beyond to deliver the highest quality care by honoring one employee with the Caregiver of the Year award. This award honors the hard work, person-centered care and dedication of an exceptional caregiver who is part of our one-of-a-kind care team. Each year, families and clients nominate their BrightStar Care caregiver by submitting a testimonial letter that outlines the incomparable care they provide. Rafael Benavides is a first-time regional nominee and first-time national winner. This marks the first time in eight years that a caregiver from California has won the prestigious award.

Rafael’s commitment to providing extraordinary care to his clients was recognized earlier this year by BrightStar Care. He was first selected as the West Regional winner and was invited to join the three other regional winners at the brand’s annual conference, the first to be held virtually this year, where BrightStar Care CEO and founder, Shelly Sun, announced the 2020 Caregiver of the Year award to Rafael Benavides. Now as BrightStar Care’s national winner, Benavides will receive a $5,000 scholarship to use towards his continued education.

He received a heartfelt nomination letter from the client’s husband, Laddie, who highlighted how much of a difference Rafael has made in his wife’s life. In 2018, his client had multiple falls, medical issues and eight hospitalizations. On his first day, Rafael was gentle with his client and attentive to her needs. He came in each day with a positive attitude, encouraging his client and committed to providing her the best care. Laddie credits Rafael for improving his wife’s attitude and outlook on life and mentions that falls and hospitalizations haven’t occurred since Rafael began providing care. “It’s his approach that differentiates Rafael from the multitude of caregivers at other firms. He is truly head and shoulders above the rest,” said the client’s husband, Laddie.

“Rafael’s touching and heartwarming nomination letter is one of the many reasons our clients have put their trust in BrightStar Care over the years,” said Shelly Sun, CEO and Founder of BrightStar Care. “We’re delighted to recognize Rafael Benavides’ dedication to his clients and provide the honor of being this year’s Caregiver of the Year as he exemplifies what it means to put your clients first and provide the highest quality of care.”
