Bedfordshire is a historic county in the East of England, with major towns including Luton and Bedford. Its close proximity to London makes it a popular area of the country to live in, with attractions including Woburn Safari Park and the Dunstable Downs. With such enjoyable surroundings it is therefore understandable why your loved one might not want to leave their home in Bedfordshire when they are no longer able to care for themselves.
Thankfully, Consultus Care & Nursing is able to help residents of the county stay in their homes, living independently and safely. If you or someone you know requires live-in care, our Consultus nurses and carers are available across Bedfordshire.
By providing live-in care in Bedfordshire our clients are able to remain in the comfort of their homes, with their family, friends and pets close by, whilst receiving expert support, and where necessary, medical care. Our carers and nurses can work closely with families to liaise with GPs and other medical professionals, to help alleviate the stress of coordinating external appointments.

Care at Home - Introductory live-in care model
For over 50 years, our successful self-employed model, Care at Home has been keeping the elderly safe and comfortable in their own homes. Our Care Consultants will introduce you to a self-employed carer who has been hand-picked by our team of consultants based on their relative healthcare experience and personal life skills. Many of our carers continue their training in our award-winning training centre which enhances their knowledge and understanding of the vital role of a live-in carer.
Why do carers need training?
Training must be kept up to date and it is our policy that all our carers attend an annual Moving and Positioning refresher course. We also recommend all carers attend our first aid course at least once every three years.
Live-in Nursing provides a specialist service for those who require 24/7 professional care by qualified registered nurses. Most of our live-in nurses have more than 20 years' nursing experience gained through varying healthcare services. Our Nurse Co-ordinators are also registered nurses who work from our head office and ensure they match the perfect nurse to your requirements. Working together, our nurses and nurse co-ordinators dedicate their time to you, providing not only professional care but also the invaluable companionship and emotional support.
The costs of live-in care and nursing
Every day we surprise clients with how affordable and cost-effective live-in care can be. There appears to be an opinion that live-in care is expensive and beyond a lot of people's reach. Our prices are transparent, we do not have any hidden costs. Live-in care is particularly cost effective for couples, meaning they can continue living together in their cherished homes - another benefit of live-in care and nursing.
The biggest benefits of live-in care and nursing are those that money can’t buy: security in your own home, familiar surroundings, privacy, autonomy and independence, which provides the family with peace of mind.

Your professionalism over the years has meant a lot and, as a daughter living abroad, it was always reassuring to know that you would provide a carer, whatever happened, so we are always covered. - JC
