The Gift of Care

Legacies are integral to our ability to deliver our outstanding care and help Families in the years to come.

We know the importance and emotion that is placed on making the decision to move to a Care Home, either for yourself or for the one you love.

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.

Home is where the heart is

If you ever visit either of our homes, you will find our Residents and staff going about their daily routines. After their buffet breakfast you might find our Residents visiting one of our in-house services. Maybe our GP’s, our Dietitian, our Physiotherapist, Audiologist, Clinical Psychologist, Speech and Language Therapist or maybe the Hairdresser or the Manicurist. Later on in the day the activities take over. Bridge, gardening, French conversation, indoor bowls, quizzes, discussion groups, exercise classes, poetry, reminiscence groups, art club, choir singing, film nights, whiskey club, cocktail hour, wonderful guest speakers and much, much more.

Our History

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
