If you or an elderly relative living in County Durham requires round the clock assistance, we at Consultus have carers and nurses placed across the area. Our carers can offer help with medical and personal needs, help with shopping or day trips, and assistance with GP or other health visits.

- 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.
- Many of our carers have years of experience of palliative care and understand the need to show empathy and dignity.
- We can provide live-in palliative nurses, who provide a ‘hospice in the home’ for those in the last stage of illness.
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 we spread the cost of the service between two bill payers?
Absolutely – we do like to make home nursing as affordable as possible. If payment needs be met by two people or organisations, we’d simply raise two timesheets and two invoices. It’s then up to you and the second party to decide who pays what proportion of costs. Our only caveat is that we and our nurse should ideally have just one point of contact for clinical matters, time sheets and local supervision.
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.
