    Feel confident that when permanent carers need to take a break, Consultus Nurses will be there to give you and your family total peace of mind

    Relatives can confidently enjoy a short time away, knowing that Consultus Nurses are on hand to provide everyday physical, practical, domestic and emotional support.

    Our nurses will assist with all aspects of nursing care, including:

    • medication
    • nutrition
    • continence
    • mobility and hoisting, if necessary
    • companionship
    • daily outings
    • light housework, cooking and helping with pets.

    If more than one period of respite a year is needed, we always try to ensure continuity of care by arranging for the same nurse to provide cover.

    Placements may be short- or long-term, depending upon your particular respite requirements. They can also be funded privately, by private health insurance or as part of a CCG/LHB package. For more information, please see our funding options guide.
