Searching for a care home is complex, time-consuming and highly stressful!
Choosing a care home for yourself or a loved one is an extremely important decision. Why? Because a bad care decision can not only be an expensive and a permanent mistake, but it can also be life threatening.
Yet finding the right care home today remains to be time-consuming and highly stressful. This is because most first-time care choices take place following a sudden illness, injury or loss of carer, meaning complex decisions are often made urgently and under extremely distressing circumstances. And unsurprisingly, most care seekers know nothing about the social care sector or what makes a good elderly care home. Why would you? Care homes probably aren't at the top of your reading list…
Despite living in a digital world where Zoom is the norm and you can have your groceries delivered in under 10 minutes, care seekers are still unable to make a quick and informed care decision due to the sector's longstanding barriers to entry. These include:
It's no surprise that 44% of UK care seekers regretted their care decision.

A Greener Care Industry!
We're only at the start of our journey in leading the global transformation to sustainable care, but Lottie is committed to having a positive impact every step of the way. Here's just a few of the ways we're helping set a new environmental standard for the social care sector.
There's no getting around it, care homes burn fossil fuels in order to operate. But some care homes are more energy efficient than others and that's why from day one we've labelled which of our listed facilities emit less carbon dioxide than the average care home. Lottie's “Greener Choice” label is just one of the many ways we're helping care seekers make informed decisions.
We're committed to working with care providers who share our vision for a greener social care sector. Equally, we're working hard behind the scenes on new initiatives and products to help our care partners create energy-positive buildings.
Our passion for the environment runs deep to our core. That's why we're committed to leading by example and encouraging our care partners to follow suit. As part of our efforts in protecting the environment, we offset all of our company's carbon use, plant a tree for every successful resident placement we facilitate and are a 100% paperless and plastic free business.
We recognise that the elderly care market is in crisis and requires significant reforms to enable the sector to grow and meet the projected demand for care. Lottie is committed to supporting the long-term sustainability of the elderly care market and will play a crucial role in providing the sector's key stakeholders powerful data insights to make smarter business decisions.
Running a care home isn't an easy feat and COVID-19 has only made times tougher for care providers. With the future of 1,000's of UK care homes in doubt and operators needing data insight more than ever before, Lottie will be offering its data products to all UK care operators, not just our existing care partners, for the entirety of 2021. The success of care homes is our business, so we'll be doing everything we can to support care providers through COVID-19 and to ensure the sustainability of the sector in the short, medium and long term.
The purpose of retirement living is to enjoy a range of accessible facilities in a luxurious home-from-home experience, whilst leading an independent lifestyle. We have over 200 retirement living options for you to browse - all located in picturesque settings to help you unwind and ease into later life.
Providing a strong sense of belonging, a retirement community is a larger residential housing complex for older adults who can live independently and want to remain social.
Often made up of a mixture of purpose-built houses, bungalows and apartments, retirement villages offer a sense of community and a wealth of amenities to help you live a more fulfilled later life.
Together, we're leading the global transformation to modern and sustainable care.
