- 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.
- Communication is key for Consultus; once you have a carer or nurse in place we keep in contact to ensure everyone has settled in and the relationship between both parties is happy.
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 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.
Can carers help with medical conditions?
For more advanced medical conditions, such as managing equipment - catheters and hoists, looking after wounds and liaising with your local healthcare professionals, you should consider booking a Consultus live-in nurse. A Consultus Care Consultant will be able to discuss the client’s medical situation with you, and be able to offer advice.
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.

“The Consultus nurse who looked after my mother for six days was very professional and exceptionally kind and caring. She got on well with family members, care staff and other supporters of my mother and her presence was greatly reassuring for us all. I am very grateful to the nurse and Consultus for this assistance at a most difficult time.” – LC
