- With the right care in place, home is a more comfortable, dignified and private place for all concerned than a nursing home or hospital.
- 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.
- Consultus Care & Nursing will find you a Consultus carer or nurse to match your needs or your relative’s. All you need to provide for your carer or nurse is a room in your home where they can sleep and rest in private.
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 postpone the start of nursing care or interrupt the service for a short time?
We know from long experience that delays to hospital discharge can force postponements to confirmed bookings, which can mean delaying our nurse's arrival. Similarly, you may need to request a break in service because of a temporary hospital admission. In these instances, to avoid the break-up of an established rota, we try to arrange for the nurse to remain on paid standby.
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.

“May I take this opportunity to thank you for your continuing attention and to say how much we are appreciating your carer’s dedicated work. Nothing is too much for her and Mother is very much enjoying her company and care. It’s almost as though your carer has become a part of the family, and it’s so comforting to know that she’s on hand day and night.” - IC
