A welcome break for those who need our Respite Care service
Let Astar Homecare help you take a welcome break while our award winning care team support your loved ones.
Being a full-time carer is a very demanding role. Respite care breaks are an opportunity for carers to take a holiday or simply spend some time looking after their own needs, safe in the knowledge that their loved one is receiving the very best care. Respite care can be a valuable break for older people too – it’s a chance to meet new people, enjoy a change of scenery and try out some new activities and experiences.
We tailor our respite services to each person’s individual needs and our team of carers are fully trained and professional. Respite care can be for as little or as long as you like. Whether that be an hour or 2 or overnight stays. Whatever you need as everyone is different.
We understand that it’s the personal details that make a difference. We take the time to get to know our individuals before they start, so we can be sure that their support gets off to a great start. Each individual has a person-centred support plan that takes into account their support needs, interests, likes and dislikes, and daily routines. We also appreciate and respect it takes time to build trust so that time is given with gentle encouragement.
Speak to one of our excellent advisors about your respite care requirements on 01948 302131, or fill in the short form below, we’d be delighted to help you.

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..”
