The southwestern county of Somerset is famous for its cheese and cider, as well as Glastonbury Festival, Exmoor National Park and National Trust site Cheddar Gorge and caves. There is also an array of beautiful beaches and countryside in the county, making it the perfect place for outdoor nature lovers. For those living in the county who can no longer care for themselves, Consultus can provide carers who can offer 24/7 live-in care.
Carers can help with personal and medical needs, along with household chores or day trips out in Somerset. They are also on hand to help liaise with other healthcare professionals to organise GP or hospital visits.

- 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.
- In a home care environment, clients benefit from a bespoke care plan, giving them the freedom to make choices about their daily routine and lifestyle.
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.
We have a set budget and can only afford for your nurse to work a limited number of hours. How will this work?
Our Live-in Nurses are contracted to work for ten hours a day, seven days a week for the duration of their booking, excluding handover days, which will be shorter. There is no day off during a stay with a client. When you speak with our Nurse Co-ordinators, we’ll discuss the likely hours of work in depth to ensure that any overtime is kept to a minimum.
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.

“On behalf of the family, I would like to thank you for the wonderful support provided by Moira when she was caring for our parents. Her kindness and consideration towards Mum left such an impression. We would not have asked for a better carer at this difficult time. She was a friendly, caring practical companion for mum and we are so grateful she was there. She was the right person, at the right time.” – JC
