Consultus Care and Nursing is a Business Reporter client
Consultus Care and Nursing is the UK’s oldest and most experienced provider of 24/7 residential and nursing care and is celebrating its 60th anniversary.th (diamond) jubilee in 2022.
Consultus was founded in 1962 by Mrs. Ann Stevens, based on the principle that “people are happiest at home”, which is intuitive and supported by research.
Moreover, older people fall less in their own homes, given their familiarity with the environment, and if they do fall, they tend to injure themselves less, which reduces the number of hospitalizations and rehospitalizations. They can also keep their pets, preserve their memories and entertain their family and friends – and thus maintain their normal lifestyle for as long as possible.
24/7 residential care is no more expensive than nursing homes in major groups when the cost of all “hotel” accommodation is taken into account, added to the typical set of personal services needed for residents of nursing and nursing homes.
Selling a family home that would typically appreciate in value over time and then placing the proceeds in a bank with such low interest rates doesn’t make much sense when 24/7 home maintenance can be financed by one of the new, flexible life mortgages. products from the financial sector, where it is necessary to use only the funds needed in the short and medium term.

Other research via NHS and reflected in the National Hip Fracture Database in the 2016 study: Age and Aging, along with independent study Live in Care Hub shows that hip fractures are slightly more than half as likely in people’s own homes. Also, the risk of cross-contamination in one’s own home is clearly much less than for older people living in apartment buildings, as we all learned during the Covid pandemic.
