I know I can create a password in LibreOffice Writer ('Save As...' option 'Save with password' etc) but can I do the same for Base Database? It doesn't seem possible? If not, any suggestions on how I can protect my database? Thanks.

There is no similar "Writer" type password for Base. As for embedded databases, passwords are not probable since the DB is processed in LO. Applying a password to an embedded HSQL DB does not work. Beside, any SQL (such as pw changes) entered can be found in plain text by anyone who knows where to look for it. To utilize DB password protection use a split or other external DB (such as PostgreSQL, MySQL etc.) and apply passwords and rights accordingly. For this it is best to refer to the documentation of the DB you are using.
