Autumna has worked with self-funding families for over a decade and we know the questions they ask.
Autumna is the only website and advice line specialising in self-funding families looking for elderly care.
It doesn’t matter how big or small your marketing budget is, search hierarchy on Autumna is influenced largely by the amount of information you provide to families searching for care services on our site.
We want social care to be transparent for our clients and so Autumna rates your service by how open it’s ‘virtual’ windows and doors 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 tackle infection prevention and control (IPC).
If you get stuck - here is a video that will show you what to do.

In response to the COVID-19 crisis Autumna has invited every registered care provider in the UK to take up a FREE standard listing. This provides families with the core online information they need at a time when visiting providers is somewhat restricted.
If you want to be even more visible though and provide a much higher level of information to help the families looking for elderly care to find you, then you can opt for a PREMIUM profile listing.
A PREMIUM profile monthly flat subscription fee for care homes and live-in care branches is £58/month +VAT.
A PREMIUM profile monthly flat subscription fee for home care agencies is £33/month +VAT.
Retirement living developments are slightly different because Autumna has categorised those according to size and therefore charges accordingly.
Retirement Village: £195+VAT/month
Retirement Community: £125+VAT/month
Retirement Housing: £95+VAT/month
There are no other costs involved. No referral fees. No hidden extras. No lengthy contract tie-ins. 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.
It is vitally important that the information we provide is independent and unbiased.
That is why we will not take referral fees and we can't discount our prices for large groups - it's a flat-rate for every premium profile.
Self-funders have a choice over who provides their later life care, and Autumna presents that choice in a format that is easy-to-navigate and easy-to-compare.
In the care home, live-in care and home care sectors, Autumna's Profile Strength indicator reflects the amount of up-to-date and relevant information that has been provided. The stronger the Profile Strength the easier it is for self-funding families to find the answers they need.
It’s very important that the information we provide to families on our site is up-to-date and relevant, so we’ve made it very easy for you to edit your profile yourself.
The more frequently you update your information - even if it’s just your availability status - the more it will help your Profile Strength indicator.
Whether you’ve listed one care service or 100, you can see really easily how your profile is performing on Autumna just by checking your stats, leads and notifications pages.
In addition, every care provider who has claimed a profile on Autumna, will receive a monthly email containing a summary of their stats, including details of any qualified referrals from the advice line team.
Very often the first care provider to respond to an enquiry generated by our advice line, with a caring and helpful call, goes on to get the placement. To ensure you never miss a lead and are always prompt with a response, an Autumna premium profile comes with a SMS lead notification service that you can easily opt into.
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.
A PREMIUM profile on Autumna has more than 200 searchable fields and can include such things as:
The self-funding consumer can filter their search by any of these criteria and shortlist providers that meet their requirements.
