  • Private Home Nursing
  • Private Live-in Nursing

    People are much happier being nursed in their own home. Feeling safe in familiar surroundings with family and friends and the reassurance of 24-hour, one-to-one nursing.

    Round the clock care, seven days a week, is provided for clients or couples for short-term (minimum 4 days) or long-term bookings. Live-in Nurses are assigned based on particular areas of expertise and carefully matched so that a good relationship is fostered from an early stage.

    Our Nurse Consultants are office-based, all registered nurses and are always on hand day and night to provide expert help and advice. Together with our Live-in Nurses, they work closely with families, GPs, district nurses and other healthcare professionals to provide a coordinated, holistic care package. 

    A listening ear and invaluable company provides reassurance and guidance to individuals and as well as attending to medical needs, our private home nurses help with cooking and light chores around the house. 

    It all adds up to make day-to-day living far more enjoyable and far less stressful for clients and their families, which means life can go on as normally as possible.

    Short-term bookings typically include:

    • respite care, when a regular nurse or family member needs a break
    • rehabilitation for people who need nursing care following surgery, a period of illness, or hospitalisation
    • end-of-life/palliative nursing care  for clients who want to stay in the comfort of their own home
    • clients who want to avoid a hospital admission or seek earlier discharge from hospital.

    Long-term bookings - typically on a two-week rotation – are suited to:

    How we fit into your daily routine

    Nurses work a minimum 12-hour day, usually between 8am and 8pm, with a 2-hour break, but Consultus offers a bespoke nursing service, giving you the reassurance that someone is always on hand beyond these hours and throughout the night.

    Read what our Live-in Nursing clients say about us

    • The team in the office are always so happy to help and always assist in any problems we may have. The nurses are brilliant and especially here they have to be adaptable and flexible. They support us as well as I hope I support the nursing team. The team of nurses we have are all very friendly, reliable and lovely people. Brilliant company, brilliant staff in office, brilliant nurses in our team.
    • The Nurse provided has just the right combination of professional skills and experience, personal qualities and understanding. She is excellent at the nursing tasks, gets on very well with our carers and is easy to have in our home.
    • Finding a suitable nurse for my daughter’s complex needs is unlikely to be ‘simple’ or ‘straightforward’ – I was pleased that Consultus persevered to find the right person. We are fully satisfied with the nurse provided. Consultus understands the need for consistency of care and the importance of building relationships on trust and respect.
    • As R’s primary carer I am only able to go away for a much needed respite break if I am confidence that my replacement will maintain our routine, understand and respect her complex needs, have a high level of observational skills and patience to communicate, be calm and know what to do should an emergency arise. Debi has made all this possible.
