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 governed 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’ 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.
In response to the COVID-19 crisis Autumna is inviting every registered care provider in the UK to take up a FREE standard listing. This provides families with the core information they need at a time when they can't visit homes.
If you want to be more visible and provide more information to help the families looking for elderly care to find you though, 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.
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.
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 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.
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, which in turn, effects how high your profile will appear in a search.
You can see really easily how your profile is performing on Autumna just by checking your stats page. Whether you’ve listed one care service or 100 you can see how many people have viewed your profile and the various areas within your profile that they are most interested in.
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.

The self-funding consumer can filter their search by any of these criteria and shortlist homes that meet their requirements.
