Funding Live-in Care or Nursing

Live-in care or nursing is often a more affordable option than moving into a residential care or nursing home. However, we understand that any kind of private care service is expensive, and clients may benefit from financial advice to determine the most effective way of meeting long-term care funding requirements. 

We cannot provide financial advice ourselves, but we can pass on some guidance as to how many of our clients fund their care and as a SOLLA (Society of Later Life Advisors) Affiliate Member, we can signpost you to a SOLLA Accredited Financial Advisor.

Is live-in care more expensive than a care home?


You may be surprised that the cost of private live-in care can compare favourably to some care homes. Our costs are transparent and your individual needs are discussed in detail with our dedicated Triage Consultants. Consultus doesn’t have any hidden costs.

Our services are especially cost-effective for couples who need assistance, and live-in care means you get to stay together. We are always greatly saddened to hear about couples who are separated at times when they need each other more than ever.
