“Three members of our family have been in retirement communities between 2008 and 2015. They have had a variety of health care needs which have changed significantly over time. As a result of these changing health care needs, they have received long term care at four different retirement communities. This care has included assisted living and memory care. Three of the long term care communities were highly recommended by independent advisers. The fourth one was utilized for three months until a better placement could be found. So we have had a fair amount of experience with long term care.

The memory care provided at BrightStar Senior Living has been by far the best care that we have experienced. Our family member has been there for over a year. The combination of the quality of the staff and the creativity of the building design produces an exceptional living environment. Our family member and the other residents thrive and are more joyful than we could have ever expected. For the first time, we consistently have fun visits and we enjoy interacting with the other residents.” – Mike M.

“Our family searched long and hard for a facility in Madison that would feel like home to my mother and treat her with the respect she deserves. [My mother] lived at Brightstar for nearly a year before she passed away surrounded by loving caregivers. The leadership and staff were very responsive to all of my Mothers needs and delivered care with compassion and care. She was constantly offered diverse activities and nutritious meals. The intimate atmosphere allowed her to safely explore her surroundings and she found a new family with all of the residents. The offering of medical care brought to her was a great asset and they worked seamlessly with hospice during her final weeks. I would highly recommend Brightstar!” – Cathy F.

“From the minute I walked into BrightStar Senior Living, I knew my Mom deserved to live there. I brought her to visit and her first comment was, ‘It’s so clean here. Clean and bright and friendly.’ My Mom is well into her 90’s, and I was very cautious about another move. But, everyone at BrightStar was so helpful. Bonnie and her team literally held the doors open for us. Her first weeks have been filled with stimulating activities, new friendships, nourishing meals, and staff attention. I thought she could become disoriented in strange surroundings, but she accepted her new place as her home even before the furniture arrived and the pictures were hung. She feels safe, and I’m less stressed. Of course, I wish we’d made the move sooner, but everything happens in its own time, and this has been a beautiful time.”

“How did BrightStar get so many amazing and caring caretakers under one roof? I want my mom to have the best, and she has it there. My mom has been living in the assisted living apartments for three weeks now, and I am totally impressed. They make her feel so special and cared about.” – Jane S.
