Where you'll work
Cumberland is a small, intimate and welcoming care home in Mitcham in Surrey that provides quality, tailored dementia and nursing care for older people.
Tailored care and support
Our care team undertakes experiential dementia training, developed by our own in-house experts. This enables us to appreciate the daily challenges experienced by our residents with dementia, and to care for them with greater empathy.
We pride ourselves on providing tailored care. We get to know each new resident, from their physical needs through to their personality, what they like to do, where they used to live, their hobbies and interests. Then we set about creating a care plan that's unique to them.
Everyone wants to feel involved and engaged, and our residents are no different. Our Activity Co-ordinator, plans activities around residents' interests so that there's something to look forward to each day. We might have a stroll into Mitcham, visit the local garden centre, an urban farm or Morden Hall Park, a National Trust property.
There's plenty going on closer to home too, with arts and crafts, news review sessions, cinema and reminiscence activities. And our residents have a great time when local entertainers come to give us a performance - they really relax and get into the spirit of it.
