BrightStar Care, whose motto is “A Higher Standard of Home Care,” has moved to Suffield. After a decade in Windsor Locks, Suffield resident Heidi Partain moved the franchise in December into new quarters in the Webster Bank building on North Main Street. From there, BrightStar will continue serving the populous region between Hartford and Springfield and from Stafford to Canton.
The nicely equipped suite was crowded on January 23 for a ceremonial ribbon cutting with congratulatory comments by First Selectman Melissa Mack and State Representative Tami Zawistowsky. Friends and associates enjoyed wine and hors d’oeuvres as they explored the suite, which offered a friendly lobby, a clinical care office, two additional operational offices, a training room, and the executive office. The suite is accessed from Webster Bank’s main room; an elevator carries visitors directly from grade level outside.
Ms. Partain, who is known in Suffield for leading the yearly carol sing at the First Baptist Church, among other activities, said that BrightStar provides the best in home care on all levels of personal need. In Connecticut, the agency’s fully licensed staff can provide a range of personal care and support services on an hourly or live-in basis. In Massachusetts, the services expand to include skilled nursing and medical care.
