“Being Finalists in the LaingBuisson Awards is fantastic news. It offers real motivation and worthy recognition for all of our amazing and valued team. We always set ourselves apart by treating everyone as part of Mumby’s extended family to deliver outstanding live-in care. We are delighted to see our culture and values recognised in award-winning care.

My husband and Co-Director, Trevor Mumby, who is a psychoanalyst, counsellor, and an author of dementia support publications has spent two years developing and fine-tuning an innovative yet simple tool called The Smile File. This year it was rolled out to everyone at Mumby’s.

The Smile FileAs dementia specialists, The Smile File was created with dementia patients in mind and is particularly useful with our dementia clients. It is also beneficial for the team, other clients and client’s families to support their mental health and well-being. The Smile File helps nurture better relationships that are built on trust and positive memories of people, places, possessions and past times.

2023 has seen us focus on the 3Rs, recruitment, retention and recognition. We have developed a creative, effective and inclusive multiprong approach to international recruitment and a comprehensive, forward-thinking, tailored and effective training programme. We have seen internal growth and an exceptionally high care-staff retention rate of 92.7% with longstanding carers of 19 years.

Mumby's clients’ families have access to openPASS We embrace innovation and technology to achieve success. We offer clients’ families openPASS.
