    People are much happier being nursed in their own home. Feeling safe in familiar surroundings with family and friends and the reassurance of 24-hour, one-to-one nursing.

    Round the clock care, seven days a week, is provided for clients or couples for short-term (minimum 4 days) or long-term bookings. Live-in Nurses are assigned based on particular areas of expertise and carefully matched so that a good relationship is fostered from an early stage.

    Our Nurse Co-ordinators are office-based, all registered nurses and are always on hand day and night to provide expert help and advice. Together with our Live-in Nurses, they work closely with families, GPs, district nurses and other healthcare professionals to provide a coordinated, holistic care package. 

    A listening ear and invaluable company provides reassurance and guidance to individuals and as well as attending to medical needs, our private home nurses help with cooking and light chores around the house. 

    It all adds up to make day-to-day living far more enjoyable and far less stressful for clients and their families, which means life can go on as normally as possible.

    Short-term bookings typically include:

    • respite care, when a regular nurse or family member needs a break
    • rehabilitation for people who need nursing care following surgery, a period of illness, or hospitalisation
    • end-of-life/palliative nursing care  for clients who want to stay in the comfort of their own home
    • clients who want to avoid a hospital admission or seek earlier discharge from hospital.

    Long-term bookings - typically on a two-week rotation – are suited to:

    How we fit into your daily routine

    Nurses work a minimum 12-hour day, usually between 8am and 8pm, with a 2-hour break, but Consultus offers a bespoke nursing service, giving you the reassurance that someone is always on hand beyond these hours and throughout the night.

  • Thank you for providing nurses for my father and enabling him to remain at home. Right from the initial call to you, when we felt nursing was going to be temporary, right through to the stage where we knew he was nearing the end of his days, the nurses you provided were first class. They enabled him to maintain as much of his independence and dignity as he could manage, while keeping him safe. 9/8/2017
