Relax and make yourself at home – you deserve it
“For nearly 60 years exceptional live-in carers and nurses have been supporting and helping our clients live as comfortably as possible in their cherished homes. I have first-hand experience of the truly remarkable work these professionals do and this is why my wife and I have created the Carer Houses. These houses are your home away from home and we hope you can find some time for yourself to relax and unwind.”
- Peter & Julie Seldon
The first Carer House was bought in 2013 to provide accommodation for the carers who were starting their journey as live in carers and were required to complete their Induction course. This facility proved incredibly popular for the carers who could walk a short distance to the head office for training and return in the evening to enjoy a meal and a catch up with their fellow carers. Some great friendships were forged during these courses and we knew the first Carer House was a unique and special facet to the Consultus family business.
Today Consultus have three Carer Houses which are used by the new and long standing carers who need a place to stay between bookings or during their training. All located close to the Head Office in Tonbridge.
Tonbridge is a bustling little town with a department store, two major supermarkets and an array of boutiques and restaurants. These houses are a very popular place to stay with many carers making a booking many months in advance.
In each of the houses there are spacious lounges offering up a relaxing space, with comfortable seating and a TV to enjoy after a training day.
With a number of rooms on offer, carers can relax in spacious and beautifully decorated shared rooms. On special request and on a first come first serve basis, we also have a single room available.
All of our houses come with a modern, family-sized shared bathroom with bath and shower. Each bathroom has been decorated for a fresh and modern feel.
Kitchen & Garden Area
Each house has a fully-fitted kitchen and dining area, giving you the chance to cook and catch up with your fellow carers. There is also outside space in each house, which you can enjoy in the summer months.
Consultus heavily subsidise the houses at a cost of just £36 a night which includes a light breakfast. The houses are run on a self-catering basis with the assistance of a friendly household advisor and booking agent to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
Each house has been recently renovated and refurbished to a very high standard ensuring that you feel comfortable and relaxed as soon as you walk through the door.
The facilities include;
- Free wifi and use of a shared computer
- Lounge with television and DVD player
- Fully equipped kitchen
- Washing machine
- Towels provided
- Hairdryers in all rooms
