Care Work, Become a Team Member
Care work at AStar Homecare, work with an amazing team of carers equipped with the latest technology and digital platforms to record and monitor notes, medications, meals and appointments.
Fed up of feeling unappreciated? Looking for a career rather than a mundane care work job?
Adam and Gill have completed care work for other companies and know what it feels like to be unappreciated, undervalued and fed up – so they evolved a unique a positive culture at AStar Homecare. This is maintained by regular supervision, weekly team gatherings, tea and cake, constant communication, continued support and guidance and so much more.
We know that without our incredible care work team, AStar Homecare would not be what it is today, and we are grateful to our dedicated, passionate, enthusiastic and loyal team.
As qualified trainers themselves, Adam and Gill felt that good quality training is the foundation of the care work service they offer and therefore only the very best would do.
They said “It also gives us the opportunity to really get to know our care team after interview and spend quality time implementing the AStar Homecare core values to show the team how passionate we ourselves are about making a difference”.
We believe in classroom training prior to meeting anyone we support followed by shadow shifts until such time we feel our carers are confident and competent enough to work alone with the support of our friendly management team.

Cups of Tea
From Our Home Care Individuals
We ensure our home care service is a positive experience by providing the very best, highly trained team of carers who respect your views and listen to what YOU want.
“Exceptional staff & Managers. The care and compassion given to my husband is fantastic. He is only in his early 50’s but disabled and can’t speak, they communicate with him, encouraging and motivating him to do as much for himself as possible. They follow an extensive programme of exercise and movement with him daily. It’s lovely to hear him laugh and the staff have really got to know him as a person. They always go above and beyond, nothing is ever too much trouble. They are as their name states ASTAR.”
“WE as a family never imagined that we would be able to find such a dedicated team of carers who would enable our mum to live in her own home at 96! The team is driven by the commitment, determination and professionalism of Gill and Adam Holden, who themselves work as part f the team, ensuring that they know and understand the individuals needs. They show commitment to the welfare of their team and this is reflected in the quality of care and communication shown by all staff. Above all the staff care about their clients and all show enjoyment of the job.. As a family we feel fully involved in mums day to day care and feel that the carers have become part of our extended family. From all of mums family far and wide. THANK YOU!”
“AStar began their care for me 16 months ago after a short hospital stay- They started with only a days’ notice and have been totally reliable, arriving promptly to time every morning . All of the caring staff are cheerful, caring, and very professional in their work, nothing is too much trouble and they note everything necessary in a log book. Every day I know who to expect as I get a rota with pictures and I really look forward to their visits, meaning a good happy start to each day.”
“Mum has been receiving care from AStar since the beginning of December 2018. Initially, I was very apprehensive about choosing a care company, but one of the owners (Gillian) came to visit us and put us entirely at ease. Since that time, we have been delighted with the service provided by AStar. All mum's carers are pleasant, professional, reliable and thoughtful people and mum loves them too. They are all well trained and briefed about mum's care needs. They also go above and beyond their duties when needed. Overall, AStar provide an excellent level of care. What I also like is that the owners (Adam or Gillian) share the caring for their clients from time to time, so they are aware as to what care is needed for each client. I cannot speak highly enough of them and would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone..”
