Lottie care-seeker feedback

Annie - Lottie Care Seeker

”We wanted mum to be closer to us, but we were struggling to find somewhere within our budget and in the right location. We contacted Lottie who knew about a new development that was due to open soon, and still had a few apartments available. Mum is now part of a wonderful community, thank you Lottie!”

As well as providing support to find the best elderly care services for your loved ones, Lottie has recently extended its service to retirement seekers - working alongside some of the biggest providers in the retirement sector.

How is Lottie able to offer a free service to care seekers?

Lottie is able to keep its service free for families and retirees by taking a small pre-agreed introductory commission from our community partners.
