Helping you to find Retirement Homes

You were able to find a much wider range of suitable Retirement communities for us to consider. It was helpful to have them presented together in one straight forward list.

Sarah, Basingstoke

You have been very helpful in my retirement living search and I still cannot see how you provide the service for no gain.

James, Hythe

I was not aware such an organisation existed. The information provided about retirement villages has saved many hours of independent research.

Stephen, Stamford

I was impressed with your very prompt response to my retirement enquiry. A very professional and caring service received for which I thank you.

Jane, Derby

Thank YOU for a really amazing service : prompt, efficient, and so knowledgeable. It would have been a much longer and more difficult task without your help.


Thank you. Your service is invaluable and most impressive. If you ever need someone to write a review, let me know!


Great job! Thank you for the wonderful research and advice. The report is very informative. We will move forward on this for Mum and will let you know how we go.

A great nationwide service, providing much needed guidance to families at a time when they could easily be overwhelmed. With the advice line giving impartial and independent advice this is a great service.

What a brilliant service!! Exactly what people need. A great website with really useful links ... and super personal contact when you ring Autumna.


Thanks once again for your help - I hope many other families are fortunate enough to have such a happy outcome.


What is Retirement Living?

Retirement living, sometimes known as Integrated Retirement Communities(IRC), is housing designed specifically for retirees. For anyone aged over 55, purpose-built retirement homes offer a great opportunity to downsize and focus more on lifestyle and community with added health and well-being benefits.

Retirement properties come in all locations and sizes, whether it’s a retirement village nestled somewhere in the countryside or a modern apartment in the heart of a bustling city, there are plenty of options. To help focus your search, you can explore Autumna’s directory of Retirement Living options or alternatively, let us do the research on your behalf, and get a free personalised shortlist of options directly to your inbox.  Click here to get your free list.
