Bordering Wales and with two areas of outstanding natural beauty, the Wye Valley and the Malvern Hills, Herefordshire is a county with plentiful outdoor attractions. The county is also well known for its cider production and Hereford cattle.
At Consultus we have carers and nurses available across Herefordshire to provide round the clock live-in care to elderly relatives or loved ones who are no longer able to look after themselves. Our carers can give help with day trips, shopping or household chores, and are also well trained to offer extended personal or medical care in a dignifying way. Our carers get to know their patients and help them to retain their independence in the comfort of their own home, with friends, family and pets around them. Furthermore, Consultus carers and nurses are able to coordinate with other healthcare professionals on their patient’s behalf to organise hospital or GP visits.

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.

“I want to reiterate and put on paper how really extraordinary Zelda, Jackie, Cathy and Amelie were, all in their different ways. My father became so fond of the all, and they really made these last difficult years not just bearable, but actually enjoyable for him. It wasn’t always easy, but somehow they managed to make him feel safe, dignified, quite unembarrassed despite frequently very intimate care, and above all, human. And they made him laugh. No mean feat in difficult times.” – CS
