Live-in care

Live-in care for the elderly and vulnerable is a reassuring and comforting alternative to a care home, as well as being much less disruptive than unpredictable community care and extended hospital stays.

As a live-in care provider for more than 50 years, we’re experienced at providing 24/7 live-in care that ensures the elderly and vulnerable stay in their own homes.

Our fully checked and hand-picked Consultus live-in carers live in your home, providing the practicalities of care every day. Not only will you feel better being at ease among your belongings and memories, but you also gain companionship, support and comfort, which benefits you and gives your family peace of mind.

The cost of 24-hour home care could be less than you think. Ask our friendly team of dedicated Care Consultants for more information on 01732 355231 or email care@consultuscare.com.

With live-in care, there’s none of the upheaval involved in moving to one room of a care home. Life carries on as normal in the reassuring surroundings of your own home – extending your independence and giving you daily freedom of choice.

Consultus live-in care means you can:

  • choose what you do and when
  • stay together with your spouse
  • continue to keep beloved pets
  • see friends and relatives when you like.

Our years of experience has given us a good understanding of older people’s needs and conditions. Every day we see proof that people are better at home – and healthcare professionals agree.

Research shows you recover faster after an illness or operation when you can recuperate in your own home. With a 24/7 live-in carer in place to offer convalescent care, you could also be discharged earlier from hospital following an operation.

What does a live-in carer do?

A dedicated Consultus live-in carer offers services such - as personal care and housework - to individuals and couples, tailored to your situation and needs.

We select, check, choose and train a self-employed carer who lives in your home 24 hours a day and offers a one-to-one service. One of the biggest advantages of live-in care for the elderly is the total independence and autonomy it gives you.

A live-in carer can provide:

  • reassurance 24/7 – just moments away
  • daily personal care, including dressing and undressing, washing, showering, bathing, oral care, hair care, shaving, continence care and toileting
  • companionship – help with social activities and outings
  • general housework – shopping, cooking, laundry and cleaning
  • help with looking after family pets
  • total freedom of choice – such as choosing when to get up or go to bed
  • freedom from the fixed visiting times and rigid daily routines of alternative options.

Short- or long-term live-in care

We provide short-term live-in care or long-term live-in care across the UK – often arranged within 24 hours’ notice.

Our short-term live-in care service is ideal when you need emergency care; are recovering from surgery; or want planned respite for someone who looks after a loved one.

If you value companionship and emotional support, as well as help with daily routines, our long-term live-in care option could be for you.

Call our approachable Care Consultants on 01732 355231 to discuss which option to choose or email care@consultuscare.com.

Situations where a live-in carer can help

A skilled live-in carer from Consultus can help in all kinds of scenarios, from minimising disruption for a loved-one who has dementia, to providing respite care for family members and care-givers looking after elderly or disabled people 24/7.

Other situations where we offer help include convalescent care, where our live-in carers provide high levels of attention round-the-clock, after you’ve had an illness or are recuperating from an operation at home.

A Consultus live-in carer can make an enormous difference in the later stages of life, with palliative care, which treats or manages pain and other symptoms during a terminal illness.

We also work closely with families, offering support and alleviating concerns by liaising with GPs and other health professionals. Our live-in carers and Care Consultants are experienced at understanding when a qualified live-in nurse is needed as an additional or alternative 24/7 support.

In some instances a person may require additional support or help, we liaise with our live-in nursing department, who have professional nurses on hand to help in these situations. Our live-in carers and nurses are here to help 24/7.

In any situation where you need care, there’s nothing quite like having an experienced carer who’s ready to come to your aid, in your own home, at a moment’s notice. Our live-in carers are focused completely on your or your loved one’s care and comfort.
