The county of South Yorkshire is home to the larger towns and cities of Sheffield, Doncaster, and Barnsley. Part of the county lies within the Peak District National Park with many breath-taking views and plenty of routes for walkers and cyclists alike. The largest city of Sheffield is in the eastern foothills of the Pennines and is home to the River Sheaf.
At Consultus, we have nurses and carers placed across the county to help look after your loved ones or elderly relatives who are no longer able to care for themselves. Our nurses and carers can provide extended medical and personal care, and are there to help with household chores, cooking and organising external healthcare visits. Having a live-in Consultus carer allows your loved ones to remain in the comfort of their own surroundings, familiar routines, 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.
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 happens if the client doesn’t get on well with the nurse?
Thankfully, this is extremely rare. Our Nurse Co-ordinators carefully match clients with our nurses based on that client’s specific needs. If there were to be a clash of personalities, you can rest assure we would handle the situation with the utmost diplomacy, and replace the nurse as swiftly as possible, with minimal disruption to the client.
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.
