          What makes Autumna’s elder care employee benefit scheme different?

          Autumna has more experience than anyone else in finding elder care.

              You may not have had to find a home care agency or care home for a loved one before. And quite reasonably, you may not know where to start.

              The team at Autumna though, has been supporting families find the care they need for their elderly loved ones for over 15 years. During that time our friendly and helpful advisers have built up a wealth of knowledge on how to navigate the increasingly complex social care sector.

              Autumna is a trusted source of advice and works with care professionals, GPs, hospital discharge teams, solicitors, accountants, IFAs and a host of blue-chip companies based throughout the UK and the rest of the world.

              Autumna gives you access to every elder care provider.

              Not only can Autumna help you find residential and nursing homes, but we also cover home care and live-in care agencies too.

              We include every registered elder care provider in the UK in any search we do on your behalf. And we have more information on each, than any other directory.

              And don’t forget, Autumna has the largest directory of retirement housing, retirement communities and retirement villages in one place than any other website.


              Unbiased, independent and impartial advice.

              We are unique in the fact that we don’t take referral fees from care providers.

              Whilst other employee benefit schemes might steer you in the direction of care providers who pay them a handsome commission, Autumna exists to help you make the right choice – whichever provider that might involve.

              A faster way to find the right care options

              Autumna takes the stress out of finding elder care.

              Our dedicated experts, with their years of experience in the field, can identify, and put together, all the pieces you need to make vitally important and informed decisions about your loved one's care.

              Depending on the degree of complexity, care searches can take around four weeks. Thanks to the detailed nature of our database, our team can usually get results in less than half this time.  

              And don’t forget – we are independent and impartial. We don’t get a commission from the care providers we find for you.


              The changing landscape for the ‘sandwich’ generation and why employers need to respond.

              78% of all Autumna’s advice line enquiries come from adult children looking to find elder care for a parent.

              With average life expectancy now at 81 years and expected to rise to 85 by 2040, then it is very likely that adults of working age will soon have more adult dependents than child dependents.

              It is forecast that 1 in 6 UK workers will balance their job with elder care responsibilities by 2040.

              That means that over six million employees will be having to cope with the often emotional, stressful and costly process of finding care for an older relative.

              The problems are exacerbated further by the increasing numbers of older people who are in a poor state of health.

              Amongst the modern workforce, mental health is now the dominant health risk and 44% of carers describe their situation as tiring and stressful with 20% falling ill themselves.

              2 million employees have already reduced their working hours to care for a dependant. A further 2.6 million people have given up work altogether to provide care.
