The southern county of Wiltshire offers much rural charm as well as the city of Salisbury with its beautiful cathedral. The famous Neolithic monument of Stonehenge is also at home in Wiltshire and attracts thousands of visitors every year, most notably over the summer solstice. The New Forest National Park also attracts thousands of visitors and is well known for its herds of wild horses. If you or your loved one require additional care or medical help, Consultus are on hand to provide 24/7 live in care.
Carers are well trained to offer dignifying care, including help with bathing and dressing or with jobs around the house such as cooking or cleaning. They can also work closely with families in assisting with organising external healthcare appointments.

- Our carers live in the clients’ homes, enabling them to offer round the clock care and support.
- The benefits of live-in care are priceless.
- Our team of Care Consultants have a wealth of work and life experience and are from a variety of relevant backgrounds.
- Our Care Consultants really take the time to get to know our clients and discuss their care needs and preferences in detail, thus enabling us to provide the valuable service, for which we are well-known.
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.
Can you provide visiting carers for an hour a day?
Unfortunately not; we specialise in 24/7 live-in care and nursing, where the carer lives in the clients home for 24-hour care capability. If you decide you do not need a Live-in Carer, we recommend that any visiting healthcare assistant bookings are made through a fellow member of the United Kingdom Home Care Association. Please call UKHCA on 020 8661 8188.
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 wanted you to know that our carer Lesley has been almost too good to be true! She has the sort of caring nature no one could assume and medical knowledge, co-operation and administrative ability. We would very much welcome her back and, I’m glad to say, she would be happy to return.” – PC
