Autumna launches UK’s first ever care home food accreditation

Debbie Harris

Independent care home directory Autumna has unveiled a new food accreditation to help care homes showcase their all-important dining experience and attract self-funding enquiries.

CHOICE Dining, a consumer facing accreditation, offers ratings on Cuisine, Hygiene, Options, Individuality, Care and the Environment, allowing individuals to make more detailed searches and informed decisions about the things that matter to them most.

Autumna’s founder Debbie Harris (pictured) said: “Our research shows the dining experience in the care sector is as important as the dining experience in a hotel. If someone is used to fine dining, they’ll want somewhere that caters for them, while the same applies for the individual with simpler tastes.

“The dining experience is a critical component of any care service, and our CHOICE Dining rating helps differentiate care home and offers people even more assurance when deciding on the right type of care provision.”

To be awarded the CHOICE Dining badge, care homes must have a premium profile on Autumna, and be committed to delivering an exceptional dining experience.
