Our Homes are warm, welcoming and beautiful. They are hives of activity and fun and the care we offer our Residents is exceptional. Our individually tailored approach for each Resident ensures the very best care for all needs. And we’re here to make the process as easy as possible.
Our charity originated in London’s East End in 1840, through the formation of 3 charities; the ‘Hand In Hand’, the ‘Widows’ Home’ and the ‘Jewish Workhouse’, later called the ‘Home for aged Jews’. They amalgamated in 1894 and moved to its present site, Nightingale House, in 1907. Over the years, Resident occupancy grew, new wings were built and the home became modernised.
In 2012, Nightingale House merged with Hammerson House, which was founded by Sue Hammerson CBE in 1961. The Home’s purpose was ‘to provide care for older members of the Jewish community in a real Home environment’.
Together, we became Nightingale Hammerson. In 2018, the original Hammerson House building was demolished to make way for our new, modern Home. It is a testament to the Hammerson family that we can continue their vision in providing a wonderful Home, offering exceptional care.
