We have carers and nurses who are familiar to the area and are happy to travel to look after you or your family member.
For over 50 years, our family-run business has been growing in strength, providing live-in carers and nurses to look after the elderly and vulnerable in the comfort of their own home. In fact, no matter where you are in the UK, we can provide you with a professional carer or nurse.
Live-in care and nursing means your carer or nurse will share your home round-the-clock and support your needs with tailored care, as required. You might be an elderly person who just needs a little extra help with practical items like washing, travel requirements, shopping and looking after your daily household chores. Some people call on us for short-term care after an operation or for respite care. We also provide specialist care for families who need one-to-one long-term medical care after a chronic illness or terminal diagnosis.
- 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.
- For over 50 years we have been highlighting common interests between our carers, nurses and clients.
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.
Care at Home Plus
Clients in the South of England, including the City of London, Kent, Hampshire, Surrey and Sussex, also have the option of a Care Quality Commission (CQC) regulated, fully-managed model.
Care at Home Plus provides continuity of care and peace of mind. This model is particularly useful if your relatives need to travel a great distance to be with you, or are in another time zone and want to make sure you are thoroughly looked after.
We hand-pick, assess and train our experienced live-in carers who are paid by us directly. They will ensure an enriched quality of life, while Consultus professionally manages everything else from care plans to communication with healthcare services.
With Care at Home Plus, a dedicated Care Consultant will be responsible for overseeing the carer and monitoring your, and your family’s needs. They will visit you at home and carry out a Care Needs Assessment, required by law before the service starts, and then write up a personalised plan of care.
They will also monitor staff performance. Meanwhile, the regulatory body, the CQC, ensures the quality of our service. The CQC's latest inspection report on Consultus Care & Nursing in on their website: www.cqc.org.uk
When does the Consultus Care training take place for carers?
For new carers, training will be arranged alongside their interview; for existing carers, training can be scheduled into a day between their assignments.
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.
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.

“We have nothing but the highest praise for the services received from Consultus and, in particular, for the nurse supplied. Within minutes of arriving Sarah slotted into our home and got herself sorted to receive our mum who was on her way from hospital. She was the most caring, empathetic and proficient nurse we encountered in four weeks of hospital and home care. She made a tragic situation much more manageable for us all.” – AY
