At Mumby’s we are extremely proud of all our compassionate care staff in Oxfordshire and the surrounding counties. Our carers support and empower your loved one to stay independent at home. They build strong relationships with our clients that are based on respect, honesty and trust.

We Look After Our Live-in Carers So They Can Concentrate On Looking After You

Mumby’s has an exceptionally high retention rate for staff because they are well-trained and well-treated with continual professional training including relevant NVQs and diplomas in care. Ann Mumby was originally a registered nurse and has extensive experience in home care. Ann’s husband Trevor is a University-qualified Psychiatric Social Worker. Together, Ann and Trevor have developed a comprehensive recruitment and training process that emphasises professionalism, expertise and qualifications.

Extensive Carer Training

We are aware that opening your home to a stranger who you will be relying on to provide care and support is a huge leap of faith and can be a very daunting thought. We remove that initial level of concern by screening our live-in carers very carefully through pre-employment interviews and reference checks. Mandatory clear DBS police checks are required and reviewed for all Mumby’s employees before they begin the process of being trained by us. During training we ensure our carers share our values of respect and dignity.

What it’s like to work at Mumby’s

Employees who join Mumby’s, tell us how much they enjoy feeling part of our extended family. As a family-run care company, family values and putting people first are at the heart of everything we do. Our carers and staff share a passion to deliver outstanding person-centred care at home to those who need it.

We offer a slick one-week onboarding process after your interview and outstanding in-house training with a wealth of knowledge, guidance, and practical examples to support you in your placements. What is more, we encourage staff to professionally progress and obtain qualifications such as level 2 and 3 NVQ. We love to celebrate staff achievements.

Represented by over 25 different nationalities and over 80% who speak more than one language, we are proud of our diverse workforce. We have an open and honest culture that connects and supports you to feel valued and highly motivated to give the best care to our clients.
