Located in the heart of the east midlands and reinstated as independent in 1997, Rutland is England’s smallest county with much rural and countryside charm. It is home to two small market towns, Oakham and Uppingham, and the idyllic Rutland Water, as well as an array of unspoiled villages in this small area of just 150 square miles.

- 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.
- In addition to improved health outcomes and recovery rates, being cared for by a live-in nurse in the comfort of your own home enables you to enjoy the familiarity of your house, pets, local friends and family.
- All Consultus nurses have undergone the strictest selection procedure and hold the required qualifications, verified by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).
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 professional checks do you make on your nurses?
All Consultus nurses have undergone the strictest selection procedure, culminating in a two-hour face-to-face interview. We check that they have their qualifications and documentation verified by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), a minimum of three years’ post-registration experience and are RN1-qualified, two professional references that comment on their clinical skills and competencies, a Disclosure and Barring Service Enhanced Disclosure, evidence of their ongoing Post-Registration Education and Practice (PREP).
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 would like to emphasise how much I enjoyed having Charmayne as my carer and how wonderfully I benefitted from her excellent care, and calm and intelligent personality. She made such a difference to me and dealt calmly and professionally when I had two minor episodes, following the emergency plan I have in place with my GP. Thank you.” – FH
