Oxfordshire’s most well-known city of Oxford is renowned for its world-famous university and is also the first English-speaking university in history. The city itself has a plethora of magnificent architecture from every English period, and one can experience a day filled with architectural wonders across the city. Henley-upon-Thames, Banbury, and Cherwell are also at home in this county, with the infamous Henley Regatta taking place yearly.
If your loved one living in Oxfordshire is no longer able to look after themselves Consultus carers can provide round the clock home care. We have nurses and carers placed across the county who can offer assistance to your loved one or an elderly relative with bathing, dressing, and toileting. Our nurses are also there to help with household chores, shopping, and organising GP or other healthcare visits.

- Our Nurse Co-ordinators are office-based, experienced and registered nurses, who are always on hand - day and night - to provide expert help and advice.
- Our Nurse Co-ordinators oversee all placements to ensure our clients are happy with the quality of nursing being provided and they also support our nurses with clinical advice and guidance when complex issues arise.
- Nobody wants to be displaced into the unfamiliar and potentially stressful environment of a care home. We take pride in enabling our clients to remain in their own homes and enjoy the familiar surroundings and independence that comes with this.
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.
Is there funding available for private home care and is it available on the NHS?
You’ll find lots of information, including a free guide to financing private care, on our dedicated Home Care Costs page.
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.
