Carers and nurses provide personal and dignified homecare, allowing our clients to remain living independently in their own home and in familiar surroundings. Carers are there to offer extended personal care such as bathing and toileting, as well as medical care and help with cooking or chores around the house. They are also able to liaise with other healthcare professionals and families in order to coordinate GP or hospital visits.

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 hours do live-in nurses work?
Our nurses stay with each client for the duration of the assignment, typically up to two weeks on rotation. They work seven days a week and twelve hours a day, including a daily two-hour break, the timing of which is flexible and is agreed between the client and nurse. They will also work overtime at a slightly enhanced rate, and are on hand for any night calls.
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.

“Ann was a life line thrown to us at a very difficult time. From the moment the call was made to Consultus, our family was treated with the utmost care and compassion. Ann arrived with less than 24hrs notice and immediately took control, and enabled the family to concentrate on enjoying Valerie’s last few days. Anne not only administered medical duties with the professional manner expected but delivered a truly holistic care package to Valerie and bonded with her in the last days. I know that Valerie was given the best care possible and we are truly thankful for Ann.” – JJ
