AutumnCare founder, Stuart Hope, recognised a need for a better way to manage elderly care records back in 2000.
When the time came for his father to enter care he recognised that both residents and care providers were being let down.
A falls incident on one particular day was the trigger for action:
“I was seeing huge gaps in information where nobody could tell me what exactly had occurred… Not only was it concerning for me, but it made life incredibly difficult for the staff trying to provide consistent care based off inconsistent records.”
This is where the idea for AutumnCare began. Stuart embarked on a journey of research and development. Research into the elderly care sector involved visiting a lot of homes and a lot of carers in order to develop a product that would meet real needs.
Our philosophy remains the same today: we work closely with people in the industry as we believe this is the best approach to developing a product.
As a company we have grown steadily since our beginnings, always ensuring that as we grow we are able to maintain a high level of support to our client base.
Over the past few years we have seen:
- Expansion of our HQ in Perth, Western Australia.
- East coast office expansion in Melbourne.
- The opening of a brand new Manchester office as we enter the industry in the UK.
- Expansion of Manchester, UK office.
