...about Live-in Care and Nursing
Consultus offers a 24/7, one-to-one service shaped by each individual client’s situation and needs, extending their independence and enabling daily freedom of choice. We strive to exceed our clients’ expectations in all aspects of care and nursing.
Our founder, the late Mrs Anne Stevens, founded the agency in 1962, with the conviction that anyone with domestic difficulties could be helped, whatever their need. The response from the public was extraordinary and the requests from her private clientele covered every domestic challenge.
I would just like to say what a wonderful carer we had from Consultus. My mother has just passed away and I was so relieved that she was there with me. She couldn’t have been kinder or more loving, while at the same time being highly efficient. I know my mother hasn’t always been the easiest of people, but she seemed to know how to deal with it and still really appreciated her. I have coincided with many carers over these two years, and all were excellent. Thank you for all your help these last two years, we couldn’t have managed without you.
Over the years; Consultus focused and specialised on the provision of private live-in care, and live-in nursing 24/7. We look after elderly, frail and disabled people, as well as the chronically and terminally ill. Today, our live-in carers and nurses maintain and improve the health and wellbeing of many hundreds of clients, who have realised their wish to live as independently as possible in the security of their own homes, surrounded by their possessions, memories, and the people and pets they love.
We deliver an outstanding live-in care service, which not only provides our clients with the relief, assistance and peace of mind they need, but which also provides their families and friends with the highest levels of reassurance and support.
