The southern county of Surrey lies just south-west of London and is home to the county town of Guildford, as well as the other larger towns of Epsom and Woking. With a great mix of large towns and smaller picture postcard villages, there is an eclectic mix of activities in Surrey, including taking a leisurely stroll in the Surrey hills or a day out at Epsom Racecourse.
If you or your loved one are living in Surrey and require some additional help, Consultus are able to offer round the clock live-in care. Our carers and nurses offer assistance with bathing, dressing and toileting, and where necessary, extended medical care. Our carers can also assist with household chores, day trips out in Surrey or organising external medical appointments on their client's behalf.

This service gives complete peace of mind to the entire family; we believe this is the best solution for your care needs.

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.
Can carers deal effectively with dementia, such as Alzheimer's disease?
Many of our carers are experienced in helping people with all types of dementia and its associated challenges, such as memory loss, confusion or problems with speech and understanding. We give our carers a wider understanding with in-house dementia training courses.
Care at Home Plus
Clients in the South of England, including the City of London, Kent, Hampshire, Surrey and Sussex, also have the option of a Care Quality Commission (CQC) regulated, fully-managed model.
Care at Home Plus provides continuity of care and peace of mind. This model is particularly useful if your relatives need to travel a great distance to be with you, or are in another time zone and want to make sure you are thoroughly looked after.
We hand-pick, assess and train our experienced live-in carers who are paid by us directly. They will ensure an enriched quality of life, while Consultus professionally manages everything else from care plans to communication with healthcare services.
With Care at Home Plus, a dedicated Care Consultant will be responsible for overseeing the carer and monitoring your, and your family’s needs. They will visit you at home and carry out a Care Needs Assessment, required by law before the service starts, and then write up a personalised plan of care.
They will also monitor staff performance. Meanwhile, the regulatory body, the CQC, ensures the quality of our service. The CQC's latest inspection report on Consultus Care & Nursing in on their website: www.cqc.org.uk
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.
