Our homes are welcoming, warm and comfortable but they are also hives of activity and enjoyment.   The care we offer is exceptional and our individually tailored approach to each resident ensures a home-from-home for residential, nursing, dementia, respite and palliative care.

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.


At the very heart of our ethos is our exceptional programme of engagement that is inclusive, ensuring residents can enjoy a variety of things to do and to become actively involved. Find out more
