Friends of Cumberland

, CR4 4AA

The Friends of Cumberland Care Home support the work of the home situated within Mitcham. Cumberland is a purpose built care home offering Dementia, Nursing, Residential, Respite and End of Life care. Cumberland Care Home also provides specialist care for young people with physical disabilities.

The Friends aim to improve the quality of life of the residents of the care home by working with staff, residents and relatives.

The Friends of Cumberland are looking to  develop services on the site. We have found that this is particularly valued by some residents who through deteriorating health do not have the confidence to come out of their rooms. Alongside this we support the care homes’ activities’ coordinators by providing extra pairs of hands during organised activity sessions and outings.
