Quality, compassionate and professional end of life care
Let Astar Homecare help support you with your final wishes.
We believe people have the right to choose where they wish to spend the last days of their lives. For many people this will be to remain at home in familiar surroundings with family close by.
We design an end of life care plan with you and, where you wish it, your family or friends. Our domiciliary care service will then be tailored to meet your specific needs and preferences. We value and respect each person’s spirituality and their right to dignified care at this time of their lives.
End of life care aims to help you to live as comfortably as possible in the time you have left. It involves managing physical symptoms and getting emotional support for you and your family and friends. You might need more of this type of care towards the end of your life and we are with you every step of the way.
Our team will work alongside other health care professionals and other people who are involved in your care and support to manage your symptoms, maintain your dignity and keep you as comfortable as possible.
End of life care also involves talking to you and your family and friends about what to expect towards the end of your life. The people looking after you will talk to you about your needs and wishes, and make sure they consider what you want in the care they provide.

What we do
We offer the support, empowerment and encouragement to live life as comfortably and independently as possible in your own home.
End of life care
We believe people have the right to choose where they wish to spend the last days of their lives with family close by.
Dementia care and support helps you to have the support needed to carry on living in the place you know and love, your own home.
Respite care breaks are an opportunity for carers to take a holiday or simply spend some time looking after their own needs.
Let Astar Homecare support your needs to relearn the skills required to keep your loved ones safe and independent at home.
Everyone should be able to be supported without the fear of judgment, transphobia, biphobia, discrimination, homophobia or stigma.
Providing exceptional care in your home
As a family run home care company, you will personally meet me, Gill Holden, Director and Registered Manager of AStar Homecare Services and often speak with Adam Holden who is at the office. We personally ensure all our team are trained to our high standards so you receive a personal and professional care at home service.
Awesome Team Members
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..”
