The southern county of Dorset dates back to the Neolithic era, and is home to the larger towns of Poole and Bournemouth. A large part of Dorset is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with Jurassic Coast Natural World Heritage sites, including the magnificent natural landforms of Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove.

If your loved one in Dorset is no longer able to care for themselves they may prefer to continue living in their own home in this beautiful county, rather than moving to a care home farther afield. We have carers and nurses across Dorset to provide live-in care for your loved ones or elderly relatives, offering medical and personal assistance. Our carers can also assist in coordinating GP appointments or communicating with external healthcare professionals.

Dorset Mind

Age UK Dorchester


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.

What happens once a booking has been made?

We will send you a confirmation letter and you can speak with the carer we assign over the phone. We check with both carer and client that all is well and ask you for your feedback.

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.
