Ostara’s 24 hour response and support service enables you to live safely and independently in your own home.

Ostara provides state of the art alarm equipment such as pendant alarms and fall detectors that will alert their 24 hour response centre based in Newcastle if you fall, feel unsafe or unwell at home. If an alarm is activated, Ostara will visit you at home to check you are ok and get you the help you need. They can provide other services too, such as daily phone calls when your family or usual carers are on holiday, medication reminders and enhanced dementia support if required.


Who are Ostara?

Ostara is a not-for-profit organisation that has been delivering community care alarm and response services on behalf of Newcastle City Council since 1984.  Initially based at the Civic Centre in central Newcastle, Ostara moved to South Gosforth when they became part of YHN in 2004.  After operating as YHN’s Community Care Alarm Service for over ten years, the service was relaunched as Ostara in 2016.
