    24-hour home nursing care for even the most chronic forms of lung disease, including bronchitis and emphysema

    A Consultus Live-in Nurse enables patients to avoid extended hospital stays, instead guaranteeing compassionate, effective nursing care in a tranquil, relaxing environment.

    Our nurses work closely with each patient’s GP and other members of the multidisciplinary team to provide the best possible package of medical care and support for each client. This may include education, exercise, breathing techniques, nutritional advice, emotional support and the development of 'coping' skills.

    Live-in Nursing care may also include:

    • oxygen assessments and therapy
    • administration of all types of medication
    • bronchodilators
    • ventilatory support, including BIPAP
    • cooking and appropriate nutrition
    • supervision of exercise
    • promotion of independence.

    Separation from home, family, friends and the simple pleasures in life add significant challenge to coping with COPD exacerbation. Consultus Live-in Nursing brings the focus back to all-round quality of life.
