Shropshire in the west midlands which borders mid-Wales is home to the towns of Shrewsbury, Telford, and Wrekin. One will also find the UNESCO world heritage site, Ironbridge Gorge and The Shropshire Hills of Outstanding Natural Beauty which cover a large part of the south of the county.
With such enriching surroundings, it is understandable that your loved one or elderly relative may prefer to remain in the comfort of their own home rather than moving to a care home in another area, away from friends and family. Consultus have carers available across the county of Shropshire who can provide 24/7 live-in care, helping with bathing, dressing, toileting and more. Where medical care is required, our carers are on hand to provide this, or if help with cooking meals or the household chores is needed, Consultus carers and nurses can help with this too. They can also liaise with other healthcare professionals to coordinate GP or hospital appointments.

- Our experienced, live-in nurses can provide comprehensive palliative and end-of-life support in your own home, ensuring your needs are clinically assessed and treated immediately as symptoms appear.
- Home nursing helps to prevent post-operative complications and infections. It can often mean an earlier discharge from hospital and reduce the likelihood of re-admission.
- 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.
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.
How do you choose which carer you send to me?
The first thing we will do is listen – we listen to your concerns, needs and preferences. Then we will talk you through your options and answer any questions you may have. We will review the available carers, matching their experience, expertise and personal likes and dislikes against your own, to ensure the best fit for your home and requirements.
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.
