The southwestern city of Bristol is spread across the River Avon and is home to the infamous Clifton Suspension Bridge. Its rich maritime history makes Bristol a vibrant and cultural place to live, meaning that loved ones who are not able to care for themselves anymore may want to stay in their Bristol homes, near their friends and community, rather than move to a care home out of the city.
Our carers are nurses are placed across the city of Bristol to give 24/7 home care to your elderly relatives or loved ones and provide additional assistance with coordinating hospital or other medical visits. Our carers are there for those who may need help with chores around the house, or can offer extended medical and personal care including bathing and toileting.

- Our Care Consultants really take the time to get to know our clients and discuss their care needs and preferences in detail, thus enabling us to provide the valuable service, for which we are well-known.
- Our carers make a difference not just for the client, but the whole family.
- Our clients feel less lonely and more secure knowing someone is there continuously.
- Consultus care means sleeping in your own bed, being able to continue to live with a pet, get up when you want to, instead of waiting your turn.
Since we were founded in 1962, our vision is ‘people feel better at home’. Unlike residential care or a nursing home, you’ll be able to carry on life as comfortably as possible. Having all the benefits of an experienced carer or nurse in your own home and with 100% attention on you or your family member. This service gives complete peace of mind to the entire family; we believe this is the best solution for your care needs.
Our Care Consultants and Nurse Co-ordinators, who grew up in the area, are familiar with the surroundings and have a good understanding of the healthcare professionals, services and infrastructure. Drawing from their experience they will match a suitable carer or nurse to your requirements.
With Consultus, you’re offered the freedom to choose the model of care that best suits you.
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.
Can carers help with medical conditions?
For more advanced medical conditions, managing equipment such as catheters and hoists, looking after wounds and liaising with local healthcare professionals, you should consider booking a Consultus live-in nurse. Our Care Consultant will discuss the client’s medical situation with you and be able to offer advice.
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.

“Mike is a truly exceptional palliative care nurse; he went beyond the call of duty in being incredibly thoughtful, caring and was delightful to have in the house. He showed great skill and compassion, is clearly very experienced and has the perfect inter-personal skills to carry out the role. I cannot recommend Mike highly enough.” – JC
