The south-eastern county of Essex borders Hertfordshire to the west and London to the south. On a day out in Essex you can visit the well-known Colchester Zoo and Audley End House and Gardens. If you or your loved one living in Essex need additional care or medical help, we understand you may prefer living in your own home rather than moving to a care home out of the area.
Consultus can provide carers and nurses who are available across the county, offering round the clock care to you or your loved ones. They are well trained to provide personal care including assistance with bathing, dressing and toileting, and are there to help with household chores like cooking and cleaning. Carers can also work closely with families to help organise external healthcare appointments such as visits to the GP or hospital.

- We can provide live-in palliative nurses, who provide a ‘hospice in the home’ for those in the last stage of illness.
- With the right care in place, home is a more comfortable, dignified and private place for all concerned than a nursing home or hospital.
- With a live-in nurse at home is that you can be discharged early from hospital after an operation.
- Genuine personal nursing can help you recuperate at home and, as you recover, our carers can ensure you follow your care plan and reduce the risk of re-admittance.
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.
What happens if we book a nurse but need to cancel shortly before she arrives or during the assignment?
By the time the nurse arrives at the client’s home, our nursing management team will have put in many hours of preparatory work. At the same time, our nurse will have committed herself to a booking which typically lasts for 14 days or more. For these reasons, we do charge a deposit which is equivalent to four day fees. In the event of a cancellation before the booking starts, this is non-refundable. However if the booking goes ahead, this is simply deducted from the first invoice.
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.
