Consultus & Anne Stevens - Our Story

Consultus Care and Nursing has been one of the leading providers of exceptional live-in carers and nurses for over 60 years.


Our professional, family-run business thrives on the vision of our founder, the late Mrs Anne Stevens: “People feel better at home.”


We offer people the freedom of choice, enhanced independence and the familiarity of home. Live-in care and nursing are reassuring and comforting alternatives to care or nursing homes, as well as being much less disruptive than unpredictable community care and hospital stays.


We deliver outstanding live-in care and nursing services which provide clients with relief, assistance and peace of mind, as well as providing their family and friend with the highest levels of reassurance and support.

Anne Stevens' Story


Consultus looks after the elderly, as well as the chronically and terminally ill. Today, our live-in carers and live-in nurses maintain and improve the health and wellbeing of many hundreds of people, keeping alive their dreams of living as independently as possible in the security of their own homes, surrounded by their possessions, memories, and the people they love.


Over the years, providing live-in carers and live-in nurses has become our specialism. Consultus have helped hundreds of people the length and breadth of the UK to live in peace and comfort in their own homes. This bespoke service is unique and is a wonderful alternative to a regimented care home or a hospital. A live-in carer or live-in nurse brings a huge amount of benefits to a cherished family member. Our clients feel secure in the knowledge that care is on hand at all times, and a friendly face is there to work with them to ensure they live each day to the full.


This family-run business continues to operate with the same ethos that was presented over 60 years ago, to help the elderly and vulnerable is a gift for all who work for Consultus and we will continue to raise the benchmark for live-in care and live-in nursing as realistic and affordable options for any person who needs our help.

Peter Seldon, CEO of Consultus Care and Nursing, with his Aunt and Founder of Consultus, Anne Stevens

“We provide a much better (and kinder) alternative to the often chosen option of an institutional care home: staying in the comfort and familiarity of your own home, just like my own parents wanted, and I would want for myself. Like the many thousands of our clients over the past sixty-two years, you can receive the care you need whilst maintaining your existing lifestyle for as long as possible. This option also makes economic sense, with the family home rising in value over time, and from which care can be funded”


- Peter Seldon, Nephew of Mrs Anne Stevens and CEO of Consultus Care & Nursing
