    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.

  • 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
