BrightStar Care of S. Greensboro Answers Call for a Higher Standard of In-home Care for Local Residents
By: BrightStar Care of S. Greensboro
“Steve and I had experienced a need for end-of-life and personal home care for two of our beloved family members and it was then that it became apparent how hard it was to truly find quality care,” said Karen Wall, Owner of BrightStar Care of S. Greensboro. “We felt so committed to the choice of quality offered by the BrightStar Care name that we could not think of a better business investment to commit our life’s work to.”
As a wife and husband duo, Karen Wall serves as the Owner/Branch Manager of BrightStar Care of S. Greensboro and brings with her many years of professional expertise in the sector of information technology and operations management. Owner and husband, Steve Wall has over 20 years’ experience in health care related sales and management and currently works for WebMD, adding a robust working knowledge of wellness programs and disease management.
With an official opening date of January 5, 2015, BrightStar Care of S. Greensboro offers a myriad of comprehensive services that meet the highest industry standards and works to help educate residents on the right questions to ask when searching for an in-home care provider for a loved one. In order to provide the highest standard of home health care and skilled nursing care possible, Karen and Steve Wall are looking to employ 8-30 part-time staff members in the next six months. Positions available include: Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN), or Registered Nurses (RN).
BrightStar Care recently conducted third-party research that shows that as families seek quality in-home care for their aging loved ones, the most important factors they consider include having a compassionate caregiver they can trust, somebody who understands the unique needs of their loved one, and having qualified, skilled medical professionals overseeing the care. However, the lack of clinical quality standards within the local and national private duty in-home care sector, combined with the public’s lack of knowledge of the industry, can make it challenging for Greensboro families confronted with the need for care or professionals looking to select a trustworthy service partner. BrightStar Care is committed to providing compatible caregivers to assist families with peace of mind.
Further setting them apart from the competition, the BrightStar Care of S. Greensboro’s Director of Nursing Cheryl Vaughn, RN, creates unique, personalized plans of care for each client. Vaughn educates and continually oversees a professional care team of well-qualified, experienced caregivers to deliver expert, compassionate, and personal care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Cheryl has been a Licensed Practical Nurse for eight years and a Registered Nurse for 24 years. She is from Winston-Salem, North Carolina and has experience in many different health care settings including: hospital-based care, outpatient services, infusions, and home health.
The Director of Nursing leads regularly scheduled care plan review meetings. The national BrightStar Care franchise received The Joint Commission’s Enterprise Champion for Quality award and is committed to having each of its agencies comply with Joint Commission standards. BrightStar Care also offers all clients access to its CareTogether® program, a free, private secure online caregiving resource.
