Twinsburg -- Patrick and Patricia Wethern are fulfilling their dream of making a difference in the lives of residents in Northeast Ohio with the opening of BrightStar Care of Hudson/Solon, a homecare and medical staffing agency on Ravenna Road that serves much of Northeast Ohio.

BrightStar, which opened Aug. 1, 2016, at 9261 Ravenna Road Unit B-7, provides a range of compassionate, person-centered medical and non-medical care to people of all ages, from infants to seniors in the safety and comfort of their homes.

According to a release, BrightStar Care meets the highest industry standards and works to educate residents on the right questions to ask when searching for an in-home care provider for a loved one. The Wetherns employ 12 part-time caregivers, 3 part-time skilled nurses (RN's and LPN's), one Registered Nurse director of nursing and one sales and marketing manager.

According to the release, BrightStar Care is also looking to hire several additional part-time caregivers and skilled nurses.

The Wetherns opened BrightStar Care after decades of combined experience in the healthcare industry.

"Patricia and I could not be more excited to serve the ... area with the best possible in-home care," Patrick said. "We know how important it is for family members to have peace of mind knowing that their loved ones are being cared for with the highest level of attention and respect.
