What are S.A.F.E care providers and how can I find them?

S.A.F.E stands for Safety Assurance For Everyone and is Autumna’s own initiative for providing the infection control information families need when searching online for elder care.

The aim of S.A.F.E is to give families looking for later life care the assurances they need that the care providers they are considering are putting infection control procedures at the heart of everything they do.

Why was the S.A.F.E infection control initiative introduced?

During the COVID crisis, when the ability to physically visit care providers was severely restricted, searchable online information became paramount. And when the most frequently asked question on the Autumna advice line was, “How do I know if this care home is safe?” then we knew we had to be proactive about providing the answer.  

So, we introduced the S.A.F.E badge. The S.A.F.E badge is displayed on a care provider’s profile, when they choose to provide the infection control information that families need to help them make their elder care decisions.

How will S.A.F.E develop going forwards?

The S.A.F.E initiative is currently doing ‘exactly what it says on the tin’ – providing ‘Safety Assurance For Everyone.’

As more external parties become involved, and with the help of new artificial intelligence and assistive technologies, infection control procedures have the potential to be monitored on a real-time basis.

For some this might sound far-fetched, but progress is being made all the time. 

Autumna’s aim is to keep an open mind to new ideas, to collaborate with other industry sectors, and to continue to provide proactive and ground-breaking strategies to give the public the information they need to make their elder care choices.
