LIVE-IN CARe - Introductory service
Consultus Live-in Carers offer individuals or couples a welcome and reassuring alternative to care homes, unpredictable community care and extended hospital stays. Many healthcare professionals agree that their patients recover more quickly, following illness or an operation, when they are able to recuperate in their own homes.

Our bespoke Care at Home Introductory Service has been helping families throughout the UK for over 60 years by offering a full 24/7 one-to-one service shaped by each client’s situation and care needs, extending their independence and enabling daily freedom of choice.
