We have carers and nurses who are familiar to the area and are happy to travel to look after you or your family member.

For over 50 years, our family-run business has been growing in strength, providing live-in carers and nurses to look after the elderly and vulnerable in the comfort of their own home. In fact, no matter where you are in the UK, we can provide you with a professional carer or nurse.

Live-in care and nursing means your carer or nurse will share your home round-the-clock and support your needs with tailored care, as required. You might be an elderly person who just needs a little extra help with practical items like washing, travel requirements, shopping and looking after your daily household chores. Some people call on us for short-term care after an operation or for respite care. We also provide specialist care for families who need one-to-one long-term medical care after a chronic illness or terminal diagnosis.

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.


Live-in Nursing
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.

If a client already has a district nurse and/or MacMillan nurses visiting on a regular basis, is a Live-in Nurse necessary?

It’s possible that visiting nurses simply cannot meet a client’s needs. Local nurses tend to vary on a daily basis and are available for limited visiting times only, whereas a live-in nurse provides friendly, skilful and ever-present care on a continuous basis. This means consistency and an increased feeling of security. This is invaluable to people who are intensely private, who have trouble remembering, or who become distressed at seeing a succession of different faces. Our nurses are also used to working with the local primary care team so create a 24-hour care plan that improves quality of life.
