The Healthcare & Pharmaceutical Awards 2021
Consultus Care and Nursing Awarded ‘Most Compassionate Live-in Care provider in the South East’ by The Healthcare & Pharmaceutical Awards
Live-in care provider commended for its outstanding efforts to support the physical and mental welfare of older individuals
UK, 25th March, 2021 – Long established and leading national live-in care and nursing provider, Consultus Care and Nursing is today celebrating another milestone as it announces its win of the Healthcare & Pharmaceutical Awards, in the category of Most Compassionate Live-in Care provider in the South East.
The Healthcare & Pharmaceutical Awards are a celebration of the tireless work undertaken by companies, individuals and initiatives that contribute towards promoting the physical and mental welfare of those in need of support. Consultus Care and Nursing has been one of the leading providers of exceptional live-in carers and live-in nurses for nearly 60 years and has seen significant growth in its live-in care enquiries over the past year. This is due, in part, to the tragic number of Covid-19 cases and deaths in residential care homes despite the often heroic efforts of their staff. The much reduced infection rate in older peoples’ own homes has highlighted the many benefits of 24/7 live-in care, including the significant health and wellbeing advantages as outlined in new research by The Live in care Hub – out next week.
The events of the last year have also meant that Consultus Care and Nursing has had to swiftly adapt to the changing times. From initiating its own Covid-19 saliva PCR safety net testing scheme as early as last Summer, to sourcing its own PPE and launching a nationwide recruitment campaign, Consultus Care and Nursing has gone above and beyond to ensure the safety and comfort of both its carers and clients.
Peter Seldon, CEO, Consultus Care and Nursing adds: “We’re delighted to have won the award of Most Compassionate Live-in Care provider. It’s testament to the dedication and commitment of our extraordinary live-in carers, and nurses who care deeply about every single one of their clients and are passionate about ensuring their clients feel safe, secure and comfortable in their own homes. This award is for our carers and nurses, and also for our internal care consultants and trainers who support them, who together, significantly improve our clients’ quality of life through meaningful companionship and professionally trained support.”
As well as illustrating what makes Consultus care and Nursing an award-winning live-in care provider, the emotive and heartwarming testimonials received from clients’ loved ones demonstrate just how important compassionate care is, not just for the individual but also their families who can find the burden of caring overwhelming:
“It was as if an angel had arrived”
As a family we could not be more grateful for Consultus. Over the last year and a half you have, without question delivered THE most amazing service. Whoever I have spoken to at head office has always been helpful, empathetic and respectful. Last week, we needed end of life nursing for our wonderful father at very short notice. They arranged for Marie to attend. It was as if an angel had arrived. She is the most professional, calm, compassionate nurse I have ever encountered. She guided us through Dad’s final hours beautifully and somehow managed to take the stress from what could have been the most horrible of times. Marie was so kind, gentle and respectful to Dad right to the very end and as a family we will be eternally grateful. Thank you all.

“A true testament to their commitment of care”
I know it is fair to say that my Mother greatly enjoyed the Carers you provided and there were several who she was very fond of. I hope you know who I mean as it is a true testament to their commitment of care and how they had elevated their jobs beyond what was asked for. They are to be commended and thanked.

“Consultus changed my mother’s life for the better”
Consultus changed my mother’s life for the better over the last five odd years from a lonely widow into someone who looked forward to life on a daily basis. I remember that it was only a few days into the first carer’s appointment that my mother was in a medical crisis that nearly ended her life and the carer was so concerned that I knew that the people at the frontline of Consultus were not only professional but they also cared deeply about their clients. This carried on all the way through until the last carer, Youli, who was at my mother’s side at her death.

“It was such a relief”
I would like to pay tribute to Susan, who has been an absolute star from first to last. We are so grateful to her for her invaluable, steady and caring support during the whole of the period she was with us. Having her caring for my mother was such a relief and a great lifting of the burden of how to deal properly and caringly with a rapidly deteriorating situation so that my mother met a peaceful end. I cannot commend her highly enough and will be forever grateful.
