Your home away from home
At Consultus, we want carers to feel as rested and refreshed as possible for their next assignment. Our Carer House offers carers a home away from home and is the perfect place to stay whether they are attending a training course or needing short-term accommodation between bookings.
We have three houses just a few minutes’ walk from our head office, and a short distance from the local restaurants and shops in Tonbridge. This is a bustling little town with a department store, two major supermarkets and a local bus service to and from the station. Many carers enjoy a break in the Carer Houses and take advantage of the local amenities.
It really is a home away from home, the perfect place to relax, meet and make new friends, prepare an evening meal or watch some television. The Carer Houses are, quite simply, a home for many carers throughout the year and they tell us that, once they arrive, they really do unwind and take some time for themselves. The houses are operated on a self-catering basis, with breakfast included in the nightly cost. The kitchens are fully equipped and the lounge areas are the perfect place for carers to relax at the end of the day. The bedrooms are very tastefully decorated and comfortable, with newly styled bathrooms.
It costs just £36 a night and that includes a light breakfast. We heavily subsidise the accommodation and each house is run with the support of a household adviser to make your stay more comfortable.
- fully equipped kitchen
- washing machine
- lounge with television and DVD player
- free Wifi
- a shared computer
- towels and hairdryers.
Most rooms are shared, so availability can vary. Each bedroom is within easy reach of one of the bathrooms, complete with modern fixtures and fittings.
The houses have been totally renovated, refurbished and furnished to a very high standard making carers feel they have a ‘home away from home’. Here are just a few of the many compliments we have received from our carers:
“I had a wonderful time at the Carer House, not only a comfy bed, but also great to get to know the other carers.” – JM
“I would like to thank you for my very pleasant stay at the house. I also have very much enjoyed my training and thank you for the support from all staff at Consultus! I have been very happy with the whole experience at the house and training.” – KG
“Just wanted to say thank you for making my stay here so wonderful. Your friendlessness and welcoming manor made my stay here so refreshing! Thank you and no doubt see you again soon!" - Evie D
Our friendly and welcoming housekeeper is there to do general cleaning, wash/change all bedding, towels, etc. and is at one of the Carer Houses daily.
We pride ourselves on offering our carers accommodation, not only for their introductory week, but for duration of their time with Consultus Care & Nursing.
