About Mumby’s

The most important thing you need to know about Mumby’s is the professionalism, passion and care that permeates every part of the business.

Mumby’s was started in 2002 by Ann Mumby, a nurse and care-home professional, who saw that live-in care was an eminently better option than nursing homes. Mumby’s treats clients, their families and their 90+ staff and carers like family; finding the best way to care and develop every individual so they can live life with respect, dignity and choice.

Based in Abingdon, Oxfordshire Mumby’s specialises in providing live-in care services for the elderly, especially those suffering Dementia and Alzheimer’s across Oxfordshire, it’s surrounding counties and London. They also help adults with physical and mental disabilities and have specialist carers that can provide care to high dependency clients. Regulated by the Care Quality Commission Mumby’s were rated Outstanding in January 2019, we have a customer care charter to ensure their services continue to improve.

Joel Mumby, Head of Commercial

Head of Commercial
I have been in the business on and off since I was a teenager. I used to drive our carers to and from placements. Since then, I have undertaken most roles within the business, including Finance, Care Management and Recruitment. This experience led me to be the Operations Director as I understand the working of the company. I am now Head of Commercial. Since I started, the company has grown, and with it, my role has changed drastically. Working with family isn’t always easy, but it provides me with a constant reminder of why we are in the care industry.

Outside of work
I spend a lot of time keeping fit, I also like to read a lot, spend time with my wife and friends
I love to travel but it’s often hard to find the time.
