At Consultus, we have carers placed across the county who can provide 24/7 live-in care to the residents of Tyne & Wear. Our carers and nurses are able to care for you or your loved one, offering extended medical where necessary, allowing our clients to remain living in their own homes with family, friends and pets around them. Carers also give assistance with personal care such as dressing and bathing and can liaise with external medical professionals to organise healthcare appointments on their client's behalf.

- It can be a huge confidence boost to know that you are able to be professionally cared for at home, whether it’s to facilitate recovery after a period in hospital, or part of your ongoing care plan.
- Our nurses can provide support with household chores and cooking, enabling clients to rest and recover at their own pace, and providing reassurance to friends and family that they are being fully cared for.
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.
If the client would like to have the same carers returning. Can this be arranged?
Yes, a lot of our clients have their favourite regular carers, and we do try to arrange a rota of those carers, wherever possible.
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.

“We have been so happy with Consultus, particularly as time has gone on, and we have located carers that we wanted to return, and who it turned out wanted to return. The way in which Jacky looked after mum was wonderful – more than could have been expected. I am so grateful to her for her kindness and her practicality. I have recommended Consultus to many friends and will continue to do so.” – SS
