Suzanne Mumford

Dementia Care Consultant to Carebase

Suzanne’s wealth of dementia experience has led her to be at the forefront of this specialist care.

She is passionate about the significant difference good design, the right environment and personalised care can make to residents living with the condition.

With more than 20 years’ experience in caring for those with dementia, you can feel reassured that we know what we’re doing.

The challenges and fears of memory loss in older age are clear for both the older person and also for the family members affected. And there comes a time whereby residential care from a specialist in this area is the best solution.

Carebase has many valuable years of experience looking after people living with dementia. We profoundly understand the journey that the person affected by dementia is on and we are both well equipped and well prepared to care for them in a way that makes the best of every day.

Whatever the stage of dementia, we maintain our interest in residents as people, ensuring their feelings of contentment, comfort, and security are preserved.

Through the years of being close to resident families, we also understand what it is like for you, the person that is charged with the responsibility of making the best decision for your loved one. We recognise the vital importance of choosing the right care home, and more often than not, the absolute urgency of this. We will work with you every step of the way, not only to address your concerns but also to build your trust that we keep our promises to care, every hour of every day.
