Local entrepreneurs Ed and Karen Fichtel have opened BrightStar Care Fredericksburg, a home care and medical staffing agency.

“After working 30 years at several Fortune 500 companies, I began to re-assess my career path” said Ed Fichtel. “The field of home care was something that deeply resonated with me. I experienced first-hand the challenges of aging, helping my parents and other close relatives. Our business is an opportunity to make a real difference in people’s lives and in our community.”

BrightStar Care of Fredericksburg provides a range of compassionate, person-centered medical and non-medical care to people of all ages, from infants to seniors, in their homes or location of choice 24 hours-a-day, 7 days-a-week. Services include companion care, skilled home care, transportation services, Alzheimer’s and dementia care and childcare.

BrightStar Care Fredericksburg is located at 10401 Courthouse Rd., Suite D, Spotsylvania. Call 540-376-3131 for more information.

The national BrightStar Care franchise is comprised of 280 locations. The company received the 2014 Enterprise Champion for Quality Award from The Joint Commission.
