Consultus carers and nurses are there for your loved ones who live in Derbyshire and may no longer be able to care for themselves. Our Derbyshire carers are on hand to assist with personal or medical needs and can liaise with medical professionals or coordinate any external medical appointments. Our live-in carers and nurses allow your loved one to continue living in their beloved homes with their comforts, family and pets around them.

- Sharing your home with a Consultus live-in nurse or a Consultus live-in carer means you can be properly cared for, in the place you most want to be.
- You may be surprised that live-in care can compare favourably to some care homes when it comes to cost.
- Our services are especially cost-effective for a couple who need assistance. And, live-in care means they get to stay together.
- Consultus want you to live the life you wish for, in your own homes, with your dearest at your side.
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.
Will the carer cook, clean and undertake household chores?
The main role of a carer is client care and wellbeing, but they are also there to help with the smooth running of the home, so light housekeeping, laundry, cooking, driving and shopping duties are included in the domestic duties; each can be included where personal care needs allow.
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.

“We are very grateful for all you have done for my mother. Without Joan’s careful support, my mother would have still been unable to socialise or go out and enjoy the outside world. A huge thank you to Joan, who spent much of the day and night supporting my mother.” – BK
