The Cost Of Live-In Care With Consultus

At Consultus, we believe that live-in care is a far better solution for the care needs of your loved ones compared to a nursing home. Not only is it far more comforting and less disruptive than moving into a residential care home, but it is also the more affordable option. 

Nobody wants to be displaced from their home into the unfamiliar and potentially stressful environment of a care home. This is why at Consultus we take pride in providing the right level of care and support to elderly people in the comfort of their own home where they can enjoy the familiar surroundings and the peace of mind that comes with this. 

A live-in carer is a perfect option for those who are looking to maintain their independence and the confidence that comes from receiving personalised care in their own home.

What Live In Care Provides:

  • Receive 24-hour care in the privacy of your own home from a dedicated live-in carer. This enables clients to retain their dignity and a sense of control over their care and their future and is a huge contrast from the impersonal and communal care home environment. 

  • Stay in familiar surroundings with your own photos and memories that come from being in your own home. This can be a huge support for anyone in a vulnerable state of ill-health, but particularly for our more elderly clients suffering from disorientating medical conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia.

  • Stable and familiar routines and interests that help to positively motivate and engage clients through their daily activities. This can often provide an important coping mechanism, helping clients to better manage their health conditions.

  • Family and friends are able to visit when they wish, providing a level of flexibility and independence for clients that would not be possible in a care home. It can be a huge support to be able to draw on your local network of friends and remain at home with a live-in carer. 

  • Able to enjoy the continued companionship and familiarity from clients’ pets and gardens. For many, leaving their beloved pets behind when they go into a care home can be a real sadness, but by remaining at home, clients can continue to enjoy the comfort and love that they provide.

Your Choice Of Care Options:

Here at Consultus, nothing is more important to us than giving our clients a choice in their care. We understand that being cared for at home can be a huge confidence boost to elderly people, whether it’s to facilitate recovery after a period in hospital or part of your ongoing care plan to tackle health issues or a medical condition.

During these periods, when it’s easy to feel vulnerable and uncertain about your future progress, a private live-in care provider will create a stable and supportive environment, speeding up recovery rates and improving outcomes. This is why we firmly believe that the benefits of private live-in care far excel those of a care home, both in terms of the experience and value for money.

What Live In Care Includes:

When you consider that a 24-hour live-in carer is less expensive than a care home, you can appreciate that the many benefits of live-in care are simply priceless.
