What Autumna can do for providers of elderly care

What Autumna can do for providers of elderly care

Supporting care providers and families funding their own elderly care

Autumna has worked with self-funding families for over a decade and we know the questions they ask.

What do you get if you register with Autumna?

Autumna is the only website and advice line specialising in self-funding families looking for elderly care.

Autumna provides a multi-faceted elderly care advice service

A level playing field for elderly care providers.

It doesn’t matter how big or small your marketing budget is, search hierarchy on Autumna is governed by the amount of information you provide to families searching for care services on our site.

  1. A FREE standard listing on Autumna has over 50 searchable fields to help self-funding families find you.
  2. A PREMIUM listing on Autumna has between 200 and 300 searchable fields and allows you, through photos, videos and virtual tours to really show off the personality of your care offering.

We want social care to be transparent for our clients and so Autumna rates your service by how open it’s ‘virtual’ doors and windows are.

One example of this is our S.A.F.E. infection control initiative, which allows families to search for care providers who are able to demonstrate how well equipped they are to manage, or better still prevent, any infection outbreaks.

There are no other costs involved. No referral fees. No hidden extras. And for a limited time, our data entry team will load your details. After that you have full access to your profile which you can simply edit and amend yourself, any time you want.

Why we don’t take referral fees.

It is vitally important that the information we provide is independent and unbiased.

That is why we will not take referral fees and care providers cannot pay more to be at the top of our search results.

Self-funders have a choice.

Self-funders have a choice over who provides their later life care, and Autumna presents that choice in an easy-to-navigate and accessible way.

Our Profile Strength indicator reflects the amount of up-to-date and relevant information you have provided and the stronger the profile the higher you are likely to appear in a search.

Why have we focused on self-funding families?

  1. Self-funding families rarely get the support they need to make an informed choice about their elderly care. (Dilnot Report, Care Act, Competition and Markets Authority).

  2. We want to support care providers who offer good quality care - and we know the best way to do that is to ensure self-funding families can find them.

What do you get if you subscribe to Autumna?

The content of the Autumna website has been informed by the years of experience we have built up supporting self-funding families in their search for elderly care.
